$5 could win you a new MKE Bruiser Frame and Fork.
We are proud to announce that we are currently raffling off a brand new MKE Bruiser Frame and Fork.
The size is a medium so with the right set up could fit nearly anyone large or small. The lucky winner will be pulled at our holiday fundraiser which will be held in early December.
The $ raised from this raffle will go directly to the club in order to pay insurance, maintain our facilities, and potentially cover some rent for a winter indoor facility.

I don’t care if you use a stem pad on your polo bike. I do care if you have un-plugged bar ends or exposed chainrings. That shit is messed up. But a stem pad is only gonna save the rider of the bike it’s on. Nuts and knees. That’s what likely tags the back of the stem in a crash.
I wear padded gloves, and a helmet, and now I finally have a stem pad.
If you want to get one for yourself check out skingrowsback.com from Catt & Jamie of Australia. They make a bunch of things good for polo players.
Like valve protectors.
And polo mallet straps.
.. among other things.

I spent part of the weekend in Boston with some friends from Trek Bicycles. Before I got back to NYC I was wearing some can’t-buy-em’ new shoes.
This post is a sort of thank you for the great time riding bikes and hanging out. But in case you’re looking for sub 200g per ½ pair road shoes, check out the road version.
