ORBO - OFF ROAD BUILD OFF
  • -Klunker/Bomber/Gravel/MTB... (anywhere from period correct early single speed coaster brake Bomber/Klunker to current carbon frame, hydraulic disc, full suspension Mountain bike)
  • -BMX suitable for an adult to ride, can be set up for park/race/dirt/freestyle. Dealers choice
  • This is not a build-off for your everyday cruiser or your ride to the shops bikes... This is for bikes that are meant to be ridden hard and fast, jumped, skidded and abused in an OFF ROAD setting! Stock Cranbrook with knobbies? Probably not. Go nuts



SWBO - SKINNY WHEEL BUILD OFF
  • Tire (front and rear) width not to exceed 1.5" or 40mm
  • Anything else goes


* It is up to you to decide whether your plans meet parameters and definitions. The rules are intentionally thin to leave plenty of space for creativity


Competition will run from 12am (midnight) on 1/1/2024 (the start of the new year) until 12pm (noon) on 3/31/2024 (all times are North American Central Time)

Standard rules:

* You are expected to start a build thread in the “Build Journal” section showing your starting point and post progress pics as you go. You will be prompted to select which category (prefix) you are entering. All build journals will be in one sub forum to see if it helps with exposure and activity
  • Please don't just build away and expect to jump in at the last second with a finished bike. You can enter at any time before the deadline, but the build must not be finished when you enter!
  • This is a BUILD OFF not a BIKE SHOW. Start from scratch and show us your transformation skills
* Keep a running journal in your thread about your build showing the steps you are taking

* You must post a thread in the “Finished Bikes” sub forum once your work is complete. Use the same title as your build thread but please, no special characters or fonts. Please make the first photo in your finished thread your top choice as it will be the photo used in the voting process. This is on you to put your best foot forward and select the correct photo and place it first
If your builds rideability is questionable you may be asked to provide a riding video, just to quell that concern

* Multiple entries per class from one builder are allowed, but they must have their own build threads as well as their own finished threads and will be entered for voting separately
* The same bike cannot be entered in both categories even if it conforms to parameters. Pick one and build on

  • * Bike must be built within the dates specified. It must not be started before the start date
    • You can gather parts but no physical work should be occurring prior to the start time
  • * Bike must be pedal powered and ridable
  • * Any concerns of eligibility will be at the discretion of management
 
heading forward the schedule will be as such



Dec : off

Jan-Mar : build-off - ORBO & SWBO

Apr : off

May-July : annual RRBBO - class 1/class 2 as usual

Aug : off

Sept-Nov : build-off - MBBO (We are going to deliberate and see what the data says about adding more options here. More on that later in 2024)
