Josh’s Polo Bike


la petite histoire

Our dear friend Josh was in need of a new polo bike after having cracked his previous frameset. After reviewing his playing style in combination with his previous bikes we decided to build Josh a frameset that was more robust than anything he had ridden before to ensure he would be able to keep playing without worry for many years to come. 

A few specifications include the new bike polo standard of a 1.5” tapered steerer in combination with a 15mm thru-axle. Extra requests include Paragon Machine Works adjustable rocker dropouts, bottle cage mounts (topside and underside of downtube) and double rando bosses on the fork legs. These extras will allow Josh to comfortably travel between his accommodation and the court at each tournament he travels to.
