As competition has gotten more serious so polo bikes have evolved into something far different than the track bikes with drops seen early on. Short court bike polo has led to a demand for more control, stronger parts and a generally more maneuverable rides. From custom disk brake forks to tighter geometries the bike polo bike of today is in a class all its own. Taking a closer look at Will’s ride on a recent night out here in Sacramento I had to grab a few photos of this beast. Made here in California by Jai of Done Deal this is easily one of the best bikes I’ve seen on the court!
Nothing worse than being late when it comes to playing bikes with friends! Follow Théo as he makes up time on the streets of Milano on his way to the polo courts. Gotta love the “Thug Life” bit at the end…pop over to Bici Couriers for more goodness!
Felt good to get out and whack the ball around last night with Capitol Bike Polo. First time playing clipless but managed to roll away with only a couple small wounds!
Just a mellow Sunday at the polo court in Antwerpen. If you haven’t played bike polo or it’s been a bit I suggest getting out to whack the ball bit…I know I’ll be making some time this week!
Twin Cities bike polo showing us why hitting a littke ball around is so damn fun. A tribute to a rad NHL GoPro flick with plenty of moves just as smooth to get you in to mood. Pissing down rain here in the capitol city so I’m off to find some cover and swing the mallet!
The local polo crew plays at a park just a couple blocks from apartment so I have no excuse not to roll out every now and again. Lately I’ve been heading out a bit more and might have to build me up a proper polo rig. Something about a few brews and some bikes to get through the middle of the week! Some photos or video on the way soon for sure…
Bike polo is one of those cycling things that never really seems to get old for me. Maybe it’s thinking back to playing when I had my first track bike or the fact that whacking a ball after a couple beers is just too damn satisfying. Whatever the reason this piece from Milwaukee Bike Polo pretty much nails it. Some rad shots on their home court and a bit of dialogue on polo from the teams captain. For more polo hit 321 Polo.
On a side note Tuesday means polo in Sacramento…think I’ll have to roll out.
Sometime bike polo gets real serious.
Always up for a little polo love from tim to time especially when it’s something rad like this. The Trixies are a Sacramento based female polo looking to change the face of ladies polo for the better. Right now they’re looking for help getting to this year’s Ladies Army tournament in Toronto to both play and work on their project. You can read about their plans to create a polo guidebook and the perks of helping support on their Indiegogo page. Peep the trailer for Ladies Army 5 below as well.
It’s pretty rare that we see some top notch polo flicks but this definitely delivers. All be it a Vitamin Water spot this trip through NYC to the polo courts is chock full of some rad shots and a bit of insight for those not in the know. Polo isn’t dead you just probably haven’t played it in a while!
