Klunker: Multi-speed, usually with cantilever or drum/roller brakes f&r
Bomber: Single-speed, often coaster-brake in rear... front brake optional.
that just about sums it up.
maybe billy will weigh in on this, but i think charlie and alan usually subdivide multi-speed klunkers as 'hybrid klunkers'- the real proto mountain bike. they will have all the neccesary shifters, cables, guides, zip-ties, etc....
a bomber probably won't have anything beyond a front brake cable, if that!
i think a 'bomber' can be a 'klunker', but i don't think a 'hybrid klunker' can be considered a 'bomber'.
my brain hurts.........
