What Brand(s) Do You Not Like? -- For NO Legitimate Reason

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Any brand that sells hi-tensile steel instead of chromoly, yet maintains a higher "chromoly-like" price...

PS.

I absolutely detest Specialized!

SE Bikes - I was sick with the flu one time and my friend had just bought an SE Draft. When he came over to show me, I was still sick, and I had to go puke. Every time I saw his bike after that I would feel nauseated and feel like I needed to puke. But once he took off the ugly red and yellow decals, I was fine. Ahahaha

SE for me. The name "PK Ripper" pisses me off too, for no legitimate reason.

Trek. Jersey slow riding idiots ride them on the local trails. Hate trek for that. Leaders I'm not a fan of, that's a personal thing with a reason.
