Bike polo and New York is all over this European fixed gear bike mag! NYC bike polo from the visitors point of view. Half page photos of Zach and I.
Then the Fixed vs. Freewheel opinions from me, Guthrie, Kev, Matt V, Paul, and Yorgo. The last three vote fixed.
And what is likely the last interview with the Los Marcos hooligans. I have it on good authority that all of Los Marcos Polos sailed back to the island Los Marcostan on a raft just after their last tournament. Apparently they learned nothing from Rapa Nui and between all the diseases they brought back from the Lower East Side and over exploiting their resources to build bigger and bigger statues of themselves… well, they’re extinct now.
Viva Los Marcos! RIP

I stopped by the OUTLIER store the other Saturday and this was a gift Tyler had for me. no.43 of 500. Made by self proclaimed “fakeinger and hipster” Bjorn Rust. In this issue he interviews Daniel Angus about Brisbane and bike polo. And some other stuff too. Looks good.

Earlier this year in Milwaukee there was a bike polo tournament. Peter DiAntoni (peterdiantoni.com) of COG Magazine was there taking team portraits. I was also there as a player but in between games I of course was taking photos as well. A few of them were even used in the 8 page story COG Polo Invite by Captain Jake Newborn (of Hero Squad fame). Jake also wrote a review of the Eight Inch Scrambler frame and fork, his old polo bike before getting sponsored by Milwaukee Bicycle Co. And Joe Burge, another member of Hero Squad and sponsored Milwaukee polo player, also wrote a review of a goofy little bike he used to play polo on. haha.
COG Magazine is full of beautiful photos and covers the spectrum. Seattle to Boston. Milwaukee to Taipei. Nagasawa to Lucas Brunelle.
