Opinion

Neither version of this logo is good but the new one is the least not good. The old one would have been perfect for a cowboy-lassoing company because what look like a couple of tangled wheels to me is the wrong kind of message for a cycling retailer. The new logo has a somewhat interesting icon that looks like a person holding up their arms in victory or maybe like a bike's handlebars. It looks fairly convincing on the Honda team uniforms. The wordmark is very off-putting with its tiny descenders and odd curvature in the "w". Also, it's as if every letter were from a different logo. Nonetheless, an improvement of sorts.

Thanks to Ed Hughes for the tip.
