Exaggerated the helmet shape as dorsal fin?

Being a cyclist and assuming this logo is for avid cyclists I would take a second look at the foot positioning.

It isn't a big thing in the grand scheme, but someones foot never ends up in the middle of the chainring (front set of gears), and the feet are always opposite across the chainring. This change could bring about higher perceived credibility from product users/event goers.

Call me a hater, but I don't like this at all. Nor do I think it has gallery quality. Yes, nice execution, very sharp vectors, very good designer, but way too explicit. No mystery. Nothing to think about.

I agree to degro.

As logoboom said, I think you have the opportunity to take away the added dorsal fin element, and simplify the whole logo by exaggerating the helmet to let it take on a double meaning.

Otherwise, it's a great logo.

buen logo

I agree about removing the dorsal fin and playing off of the helmet instead.
I also agree with aabailey (maybe because I'm a cyclist too?) that the foot positioning is incorrect and sort of ruins it a little.

Nice execution, but I think the concept needs to be tweaked a little. Good work nonetheless. It could be really great with some work.
