    The "LONDON" typo looks really ugly and cheap. A wannabe ugly graffiti typo.

    Same here - straightens the string so much better

    It's to reflect the Year of the Dragon, therefore the embryonic dragon lettering.

    Is that the official explanation? Looks more like a failed attempt to be "hip". Completely out of place on the so called Gundam style of the Meteor series ...
    I guess the scribbly red part is the dragon on the shaft

    Only just noticing pic 1 top is the case closed. Looked more like a beamer at first ...

    Yah, that red thing is a dragon. You can see a full size one over the word London on the bag.

    Frankly, the red thing to me resembles an aging wolf more than a dragon at first glance. Then, reckon next year will be the Year of the Dragon...make sense to put a (supposedly) fiery-looking dragon. Well, it can be mistaken for tassels BUT I am getting one so I will not say any more.

    The racing stripes thing looks like a Bimmer (M Series).

    As for the attempt at being hip, I thought the same too BUT I like to have one, so what's for me to say?

    Haha, yes I had seen it on the bag and it made no sense to me at all to put a dragon on there. I guess year of the dragon would be a good explanation but seeing as it is a London 2012 edition why not the GB lion ...

    GB lion? It has to be 3 lions then.

    Probably, the way the lettering looks is really a replication of the Parkour (Jump London/Jump Britain) modernist take at it just like the attempt at pseudo-modernist 2012 official graphics theme.

    ...and Victor is now mostly Twn made nowadays for newly rolled out models, so the designers can't help but put the dragon (or is it aging wolf?) motif.

    Hey! The colour scheme of that bimmer is a lot like the Ldn 2012 racquet. That bimmer must be sweet at the straight, wonder how it does at the bends?

    The racket design reminds me of sailor moon... It works really well on the Bimmer though. Anyone know how many pieces are to be produced?

    Yes why not just use the same font as London 2012 (though it's probably custom). As it is it looked okay/acceptable on the shaft (white on white) but then they had to replicate it on the frame as well

    Here is the GB Lion logo (but they'd have to pay license fees to use it, but similar shouldn't be that hard to design):

    I praise highly graphic designers who creates graphic designs in black on white or white on black. It's like the way wedding dresses are constructed/built rather than made/tailored, ahh, you know what I mean (not being snobbish here).

    P.S. Dutch emblem got the crown, the Union-Jacked GB team logo doesn't.
