useful as hell: MKE polo bruiser fork
(via benscycle)
this is kinda nifty galifty. as i try to implement more than the normal stream of fixed freestyle, i'm finding myself more and more interested with bike polo. i've watched, but never played. with polo becoming more accessible (which is a highly debatable subject in terms of being good or bad), i think i might be trying it out. here's something that can be really useful in general but built around polo use, the MKE polo fork. to point out the obvious, it's spaced at 120mm which is cool for not only polo, but would be great if youre doing long distance fixed/singlespeed riding. can you imagine the possibilities for touring with this thing, especially if youre running fix/fix (or free/free)? just a thought.
