"Little 500 bikes are rather unusual. They are single gear (46x18), coaster brake
racing bicycles. There are two different versions of the bike for men and women. The only differences between the two bikes are the size of the frame. Every year a new version of the bike is made and then two are given to each team. A deposit of $300 must be placed for both bikes. At the end of the season, teams are given the option to keep their bikes or to return them back to IUSF in exchange for their deposit. The used bikes are then kept at the track and are rented out to those teams that do not have old bikes."
From the Wikipedia article. I had never heard of this race personally.
