The Bikes They're Riding...

I took a quick tally from a riders data file that I have and found a few nifty details.

It looks like there are 4 singlespeeders out there.

About 9 fully rigid bikes started. 

Seven 26ers.

The rest are on 29ers with sus of some type...35+, approx.

About 20 bikes are custom or extra-small shop.

8 Fishers, 4 Giants.

(4 riders from the UK. 1 each from France, Germany and Canada.)

(Some riders didn't report very clearly and I was counting quickly...)

No fixie this year.

(Deanna Adams's cheapy homebrew fixie roadbike conversion from last year is my personal highwater mark for freakout bike culture.)
