Shower thought / Random Question

Is there a reason why cycling brands favour the left leg for their brand logo, rather than the right leg? Given the right leg is the drive side and could be argued more photogenic / aesthetically pleasing. Hoping someone might know the answer. Cheers!

    Most Countries drive on the other side of the road for starters.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Yep if you drive on the right then people can see your left leg more.
  • Yeah I thought it might be something as simple as this but it doesn't explain why the UK and Australia brands, Rapha, Maap, Attaquer follow suit. Other than tradition. Totally over thinking it I know. Cheers for the replies.

    Worldwide markets are bigger than the UK/Australia etc markets.
    Retooling isn't cost effective. Rapha just sold for £200m so they did something right. :wink:

    BMW re-engineered their motorcycle Boxer gearboxes and swingarms so the swingarm was on the right side, as this is most photographed when the bike is on the left-mounted side-stand, dontcha know...
