    We the people ... How Many Logos On Your Bike?

    I just bought a new Giant XTC 29 er and counted 23 times the "Giant" name appears on the bike.
    Thats only counting "Giant".
    The two categories of competition:
    1. Different manufacturers.
    2. Total number of logos.
    First prize will be a cashiers check for absolutely nothing.
    Second prize gets half of first prize.

    3 Manufacturer markings (name each side of DT, badge logo on HT)
    3 Model markings (name each side of TT, model symbol on back of ST)
    2 Suspension logos (each CS)

    With Giant, don't they make components now? So that would add, lets say, 2 x seatpost, 2 x stem, 2 x handlber, 2 x saddle. Maybe grips? Hubs?

    Well, my bike is pretty much stock... I'm not counting the word "Shimano" on the pedals.... There are two KHS logos on the downtube, two Alite 300 logos (name of the bike) on the top tube... and I'm pretty sure that's it (going off memory here)

    I like having a clean frame.

    Edit: One badge on the headtube! But that's ok, because it's a matte black frame and the small white logos are pretty damn badass.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    On my CX bike there are 4 Kona appearances, my Ti bike has 2, my BMX cruiser has 1 and my rigid MTB has 5.

    23 times is a bit crazy though. lol

    The size of the companies advertising budget and race team, is directly correlated to the number of times their brand name appears the product.

    Giant has to be one of the worst offendors with blatently pimping out their bikes with their logo. Trek has to be a close second.

    Maybe the advent of all of these generic carbon frames they feel they need to differentiate themselves somehow?

    2X on each grip.
    8X on the frame.

    4 very small "transition bike co" stickers. one on ea. side of the downtube by the bb and 1 ea. on the inside of the chainstays. stealth. there are FCK CNCR logos on my flat pedals though. love my tr.s cuz the stickers are removable. slap on a new colorway and it almost feels like a new bike!

    None.

    At least on the frame and fork. Says Thomson and Hope all over it, though.

    I agree! Everything that is a logo/brand/model sticker comes off my bike. Etched, painted, or clear-coated logos are fine since I usually can't do anything about them anyway.

    When I was a teen in the 90s, I used to put stickers all over my bike to make it look like I was sponsored. Now older and wiser, the only stickers I put on my bike are used to prevent scratching on my frames. That being said I have a wall dedicated to bike related stickers in my man cave.

    08' Trance XO, even with the 2 Giant, 2 Trance XO and two Maestro logos etched into the frame it looks almost naked. I still think the 08' XO has the sexiest frame for a production bike ever.

    There are also brand logos on the components.

    I don't own a Specialized but I am betting they will give Giant a run for money............"S" owners post up. I personally think the logos gone wild look is sh@t but it's good for marketing and photo opps
