Here is another Popular Mechanics article. May 1931.
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.

Peter was in The Pit for the first Bench Minor and some of his photos are in the new COG. Lots of NYC in this issue. I noticed Peter had a new Canon Mark IV and I was very envious but not sure if more so that he had it on a Canon pro guy loaner program, or that he just had one in his hands (even if for just a couple weeks). Anyway, all theses photos are from a camera body I wish I had an extra 5 G’s laying around for. And some of the shots may be for one of my lenses I loaned him for the afternoon. As always Peter did a top notch job documenting a polo event, I only wish it was more than three pages. Zach Blackburn, my longtime teammate but for this showdown an opponent, wrote the words that break down the format, the draft and the organization of this ground breaking bike polo event. I’ve heard Chicago is next in line to hold the 2011 Bench Minor. I cant wait.
Some good stuff in this issue. A pretty photo set of bike polo and an I Love Riding in the City from Capt. Jake!
Look for it as you flip thru.
I stopped by Brooklyn Machine Works to get a box before packing up for Berlin and seen they had a copy of the new Loop Mag. Seven full pages of bike polo and a few other small stuff spread out in the mag too. Tak has some great photos of a few North American female polo players here. Enjoy.
