Hardcourt BIke Polo Brooklyn Machine Works Gangsta Large

A new year and a new polo bike! After the last year of playing bike polo on an aluminum frame I’ve finally made the switch back to steel. This is my Brooklyn Machine Works Polo Gangsta in size large. It’s unpainted and totally raw in this photo taken a couple weeks ago. I built it up before paint to ride it in the NYC in Madison tournament, and now that I’m back I’ll have it sent to paint. Anyone have any color suggestions? I’m thinking anti-freeze green.

This Brooklyn is just a little different from the rest of the BMW Gangsta frames out there. I asked for brake mounts for the front and back, and where the frame number is usually stamped, instead the frame builders stamped my name.

Also I am riding on a new pair of Milwaukee Bicycle Co. 48 spoke 4 Star Polo wheels. And the drive train is the Milwaukee Pologuard with a White Ind. freewheel.

I want to give a big Thank You to Ben’s Cycle for all the support, and thanks to TrackstarNYC for help with the build.

I don’t think I need to say this but this bike is everything I want in a polo bike and I really like the way it rides and is set up. See you Sunday!
