Each category is rated by difficulty, Death Wish being the hardest and Easy Cheesy being the easiest.
Death Wish: Coaster brake racers.
The hardest of the hardcore. No hand brakes, no gears, no sense of self preservation! A rider choosing this configuration can have a suspension fork and be clipped in etc as long as the bike is single speed coaster brake only. Click here for exhaustive information on coaster brake mountain bikes.
Walmart: Department store klunkers!
Your budget is $200.00 or less and you’ll have to show your receipt upon entering the rally. You can tweak and tune your bike (and you should) as much as you want but you cannot switch out any parts! The bike must remain bone stock for the event. Most big department stores have a very lax return policy (wink wink) or donate it to charity when your done with it.
Old School: Vintage mountain bikes.
There are tons of old mountain bikes from 1990 or older just laying around waiting to roll on some single track again. Now is the time to dust off that old hot pink rockhopper and ride like your life depended on it. The bike must be 1990 or older, be full rigid (no shocks or suspension) and have 24 speeds max. Click those thumb shifters and get ready for action!!!
Easy Cheesy: Single speed mountain bikes.
Single speed mountain bikes of any stripe are welcome. High end, home grown, hodge-podge, or bmx is all right by us.
