    I don’t know about other polo players, but I’d like to see disc brake mounts. Polo wheels don’t stay true for long, so discs are nice but it’s hard to find a good polo frame with mounts.

  3. Looks like a solid polo build. Who happens to be the owner of this fine machine?

    Why the 120mm spacing? A wider hub is going to make for a stronger wheelbuild, which tends to be the weakest part of a polo bike. If there is a way to rock 130 or 135 (or even 132.5 spacing on the dropouts, that’s what I’d like to see. Otherwise, looks AWESOME! I can’t wait to test ride one of these babies…

    • Yep. The prototype is 120mm, but we are offering the bike in 120mm and 135mm spacing. Some people have requested 120mm so they can use track hubs. I think 135mm makes sense b/c of the strength issue that you mentioned and people can use existing mountain bike wheelsets that they already own.
