RULES FOR THE BUILD-a-BIKE Challenge
1:Each builder will work alone, on the bike they randomly selected. The bikes are identical aside from color, they are all factory sealed, nothing has been removed or added to the crates.
2: Builders are strongly recommended to bring their own tools. Shop tools are provided (2 sets) but access will be controlled.
a: Shop tools will be loaned 1 at a time on a 1 for 1 loan/return basis.
b: All tools will be sanitized by the Tool Handler.
3: Each contestant will have access to the Floor Judge for one 5 minute session to assist with their build.
a: when the Floor Judge says your time is up, it's up.
4: Each Builder must operate only within their 10'x10' work area.
a: tools outside of your work area will be penalized.
b: bike or parts outside of the work area will be penalized.
5: The Floor Judge can issue immediate penalties that may be Malort or adding time to your total build as they see fit.
a: Shenanigans like stealing parts or tools from other builders will not be tolerated.
b: Impeding another builder in any way will be falled down upon with great vengance and extreme wrath. The other builders will choose your fate. God have mercy on your soul.
6: Each Builder must have their own Zoom equipped device that can run for 1.5 hours (or have a plug/cord). It must be able to run on Clevelandmoto's wifi.
7: We're all friends, no lawsuits or being a jerk. We know there are risks involved.
8: Builders will supply their own PPE and eye protection etc. Masks when in the common areas (outside of your build area). Masks are not required outdoors. If you're not feeling well. Take a pass. We don't want to get sick because you're a hero.
9: Phil will judge the quality / accuracy of your build. It's not up for debate. If you've made an error you will have a chance to correct it after your clock is restarted.
a: All remedial work must be followed by an inspection and another test ride.
b: There will be a 3rd party time manager who will keep track of everyone's build on 6 individual stop watches.
c: There will also be a group clock so folks can get an idea of how they're doing.
10: All bikes will be totally completed, fueled, started, adjusted, idled, and inspected and taken for a very short off-road test ride before the timer is stopped.
