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!
if you’re cycling interests are at all varied (yo!) events like Tallinn Bicycle Week are a cut above the rest. From swinging polo mallets to uphill enduro there’s more than just something for everyone at Estonia’s premiere bike gathering. Quite the trek to Tallinn from the states but looks like a hell of a party…would go!
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…
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.
Man I can’t remember the last time I saw one of these Weird Pista videos. Keijiro is still entertaining as ever with these short flicks that gives you trick tips, interviews and a look at riding fixed freestyle in Japan. Just posted a couple of the recent bits and hopefully I’ll remember to stay on these more because stuff like this is too rad.
