My old road bike with new components

I’ve been riding this thing around on the weekends/days off.

I moved to NYC with two bikes and one was a one-niner but it didn’t last very long. Other than that and a few loaners here and there I’ve just been on single speeds and fixed bikes for the last 5 years.

This bike is not build for speed but it sure is comfortable. Steel frame with Phil hubs. 48 spoke Velocity Dyads wrapped in RiBMo 32′s. Paul Canti’s pulled by NOS Dura-ace levers. Dura-ace shifters moving Ultegra derailleurs. And a Brooks springer.

And a big brass bell.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic: NYC 2011

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic
June 5th, 2011
Governors Island, New York

Last year this was the same weekend as ESPI5 so I missed it but I was at the first year and second. I highly recommended making it to this because watching polo in New York City is not very common. The 2008 event was the first in 70 years and there was only about 150 people there. The  2009 event was the second match and about 10,000 people were in attendance because of some prince from some other country was here playing. From what I heard last years event was about the same. That means get there early. Or just skip the crowds.

I’m planning on going to this to visit the Outlier people and Thomas of Horse Cycles. Also to check out all the other stuff, I think I’m going to take my camera. And there are a couple of after parties. One at the Chrome store and a one at the shop of Horse Cycles in Brooklyn.
