Your attention to detail in making that the most hated bike is superb!

- Trek: check
- 200GS chainset: check
- Coloured tyres: check
- Plastic pedals: check
- Half clips: check
- Mix of a number of groupsets: check
- Plastic push push STIs: Check

But you missed a few of easy points: That should have risers and bar ends (pointed upwards), the saddle should be a big squishy one, mudguards are missing, tyres should be blue and yellow slicks and it needs to have the 'bike dipped in glue and ridden through halfords' look with lights, lock, rack and seat pack at least in order to be the truely most hated bike. Nice try but no cigar! :wink:

Interesting idea. Sadly I think it'd end in more controversy and tears than Maradnonna's 'Hand Of God' goal, Lance Armstrong and the retrobike newsletter combined.

I've managed to mix Deore LX r/mech, Exage front mech, XT Levers with STX-RC sti grafted on, 200GS chainset and STX cantis.




Phew....
