I'm going to pimp my Giant XTC composite with the 72 Bowery Logos, my dad will provide them for me, I just have to make em...

Does anybody know what font it is on Giant logos?

and should I go with only the logos in white on my black carbon frame or should I go with the whole white panel theme? problem is offcourse getting it to look good over the bottleholders screws and stuff...

I imagine that'll probably be a custom type, not an off-the-shelf jobbie.

Looks like a custom drawn logo rather than a font, but you could always try this: http://new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

Not sure why Giant put this rather clunky logo on this bike anyway.
It's a beautiful frame &, in my opinion, deserves a slicker, classic design.

Good luck finding it, but it shouldn't be too hard to redraw if you can't find one.

i think it's a pretty cool 70's style logo but I just might go with something more classical.

But what u think, white panel and black script or just White letters on the black carbon?

That logo should be easy to replicate with any half decent drawing program, its simple enough.

As for white or black 7 white etc.

How about a white block with the logo cut out of it so the letters are the carbon of the frame. That would look cool. :wink:
