I'm afraid you were very much in the minority. We had a lot of complaints about that.

Press F5 and you'll see the new one.

If I press F5 will I lose the Tron bike forever? If so I'm gonna leave well alone :-)

What's not to like? It's symbolic, not meant to be realistic, surely.
In reply to Tony the Blade:

Tell me about it.

Most people compared it to a pair of glasses. I think they were cool enough to know about Tron :)

Change it back. Change it back NOW godammit. <shakes fist> ;-)

If you're going to change anything then change 'Biking' to 'Cycling'.

Haha.

+1 for cycling vs 'biking'.

New hill talk icon favorite so far!

Move on to Hill Talk. That looks like a green lady lying down.

What you talkin' 'bout Willis?

I'm on UKC, what's Hill Talk? When I click on it all the icons become folders.

I was convinced the rock talk icon was somebody weightlifting. I couldn't work it out.

The forum is for 'Road Biking' and 'Mountain Biking'.

I have heard of 'Road Cycling', but not 'Mountain Cycling'.

In reply to Alan James - UKC and UKH:

Yes but the generic term for getting out on your bike is 'Cycling' not 'biking'.

In the time old tradition of UKC pedantry, you're wrong and I'm right. Now get it sorted James or I'll set the top-ropers on yer.

In reply to Toby S:

I never go cycling, but I go out biking quite a bit.

... never heard anyone say "been out on much on your cycle?"

Dammit, now you've said it I can't unsee it.

Maybe we should re-name all the forums then. We could have the "Getting out on your bike" forum, the "Getting out in the hills" forum, the "Getting out on the rock" forum etc... :o)

On the topic of new icons, does it look to anyone else that the bouldering man is about to step in some dog's...ahem...business?!

Who goes 'road biking' as opposed to cycling? It's equally as strange a term as mountain cycling for me. The act of riding a bike is cycling not biking for me ^^. Have you been car-ing to work or do you cycle alan?

I might do a bit of Biklocross this weekend.

Tron's gone :-(

Looks like a bicyclerist with long hair now!

Nooooo that's a different one, yesterdays was just a couple of wheels filled in and a triangular rider. This one is pants. (by comparison) I understand I'm in a minority in my liking it, hey-ho ;-)

This one looks like he is cycling in front of a sports stand, maybe in a velodrome? Climbing cyclists should be MTBers! Away with skinny nonsense!

I just killed |Tron on my shonky corporate machine, amd all the oters changed too - no more Ukrainian cams or piolet claymore ice axes.

Still got iffy little squares instead of swooshy arrows, eyes, envelopes, etc though
