DAB magazine, out of Rochester, New York, is the first devoted to bike polo. And here is a peek at the first issue.
It’s a good first effort with submitted writing, and photos. Also product reviews and event re-caps. Looking forward to more.
I heard the editor is open to submissions, if interested try the gmail address bikepolozine.

Someone sent me a link to this. Many good photos. This one is from January 23, 2011 in Klosters, Switzerland. Follow the link to Boston.com to see lots more.
I just got word that the 120mm polo fork that Milwaukee Bicycle Co. and I worked together to make is now available.
I’ve been riding this fork since before 2010 Worlds and it’s great.
When I was working with Drew at MKE to make this happen I had this to say about the idea.
“I was thinking about the convenience of having one spare wheel to replace the front or rear, especially in tournament situations. A 120mm spaced fork made specifically for polo would mean more interchangeability, less spare parts, more gearing options for us single speed and fixed riders. And it would mean that any bike with this fork would breathe polo.”
Check the Ben’s Cycle site for all the specs and pricing.
