A great polo empire, like a great cake, is most easily diminished at the edges.

KING SAID...
Who all would be interested in weld on horizontal dropouts for any STEEL bike? There going to be water jetted so I have to order a minimum of 40. Thats enough to do 20 bikes assuming I dont tourch any in the process. Also making gussets by hand, however if theres a demand i will have them jetted too. We could do any 2d desighn as long as it would still function. Im waiting to pull the trigger on this until theres enough intrest to fill the order. There pretty slick little guys that SHOULD work on anything. 3/8ths axle slots and fancy looking desighn. Please let me know soon so I dont get cold feet and let another brilliant idea die!

Can I get a frame gusset with the St Cago logo in it?

STL BIKE POLO said...

not a bad idea king. are you going to braze these suckers rather than weld 'em?

Anonymous said...

i would have to make a lot of them, as it has to be first water jet cut then shaped. I can do it by hand (ha ha) if u only need 1. downfall to that is it takes a long time and is out of lighter guage metal than what i was gonna have made. Id like to do somthing synonomous with stlpolo so we cann all rock them. Big tides? cuddling? It has to be text or and image that can be made as a silouette. like a mallet but i wanna be original.

If you want them to actually do somthing to strengthen your bike its weld on. but if we want a bunch of copper do-hickeys that look great but dont make anything stronger we can braise them on... im up for either im just trying to make my bike strong enough for the way i play... without spending much.
-Jake-
PS- LUCKY. Im looking for the smaller diameter mallet material or just a chi louis smaller diameter mallet head. Help a brutha out?

Lucky said...

I can help you.

Please take my name off that. The last thing i want is one of those things with my name on it. Seriously. Dont like it, dont want to be a part of those posters.

anchovy said...

thanks. I was trying to do it myself but i got some PC issues right now...

anchovy said...

Jake, is your frame even CroMO? if its that low end HiTensile stuff then your better off just getting a nice frame to start with. No sense fixing HiTensile steel when there are plenty full CroMo's out there.

Anonymous said...

Your a chro-mo.
-Jake-






Yeah I'm doing both. It's gonna b sweeet.

The Creep said...

anchovi, why did you not accept Bens generous gift of "Flying Polo Eagle Poster"? Now we have Polo Unicorn Poster. Not as cool or scary.
-i guess its kind of scary. in different way though.

At least that Pegasus doesn't have my name across it. You pretty much get to pick one of two styles of images on this blog, gay or retarded.
also PATRICK, buy a smaller bolt for your mallet! That thing is gonna kill somebody. Just for everybody else out there, please don't use a 3/8 axle w/15mm nuts to bolt your mallet head on.

Eugene said...

Yo Trent! I was wondering if you had a chance to get those decals done, and if you could also bring that coro-plast. I'll have spoke cards for everyone today regarding what we talked about at Lucky's house.

Hey Toph! give me a call before polo tonight. I got some old wheel covers you can have for the Kona, used ones. I just need reminded before i leave tonight. Now you wont have to break out a drill. These are pre drilled!

Anchovy, thanks for reminding me to fix my mallet, i almost forgot. its safe now. i tightened the bolt in and then sawed the protruding end off completely (no room for an axle) and then put massive amounts of tape on both ends. that was the first mallet I ever made, its a learning experience. -Patrick

hellochris said...

jake, i have an old 4130 mt bike that needs new dropouts. count me in.

colin said...

Lucky said...

It's 6:30. I just got home from work. Need to eat and shower. Looks like another evening without polo for me.

You guys have fun, I'll see you this weekend for sure.

Anonymous said...

I just love your weblog! Very nice post! Still you can do many things to improve it.

anchovy said...

good polo today you guys. Toph was being a tough goalie, Patrick was being a menace and all up in my shit all the time (in a good way). Colin was learning and growing. Good job all newbies! Eugene i have your bike. LMK when you want it.
If i knew it was that cold out, i woulda never went!
Anchovy
PS Jake, whats the cost of those dropouts? i may put in an order for a set if its nice price.
PSS...Also, everybody Toph said his Kona is for sale and he is going to make his green fixed gear his new polo bike. Anybody want to wager on if he was joking or not?

Charlie from como said...

i have a couple frames that could use gussets and drop outs, depending on the particulars...

Tim D. said...

I too, may be interested in dropouts/track ends.

Also, while I am bringing my polo bike and gear this weekend to the STL...I may or may not be able to play Sunday afternoon. It's all dependant on who makes it to the gold medal game in Olympic hockey. If the U.S. is in, I'm watching the game. If not, I'll play polo if you guys are down.

Lucky said...

Looks like 40ish and dry both Saturday and Sunday. The olympic hockey gold medal game is Sunday at 10:15am local time. You won't miss any polo for it.

Shall we twitter 1pm Sunday, Mt Plesant park?

TophaLoaf said...

i would like to wager that i am not selling the Kona. Thats kind of been a running joke between Chovi and I ever since he sold it to me that i would sell it right back to him. Just cuz as i was taking it out of his truckbed, handing him the money he started getting all teary eyed and said if i ever wanted to sell the Kona to sell it right back to him. And that is the stroy of Anchovi, Tophs $300 and the Kona.

Whoopi Goldberg said...

The View twitters. and im not twittering shit!
-Patrick, in case you did not see this, we have a link to the most Hipster Website ever. Fixed Gear Gallery! Booya, Nick! There IS a fixed gear website, theres actually a million of them!

Ben said...

Kona + Toph + Anchovy love triangle.

nick said...

Patrick, Francis, Colin all of you guys are really improving a lot. It was a lot of fun playing with all of you yesterday. Keep up the great work.

Are you guys playing Saturday? I may make my triumphant return to the game. I guarentee I won't foot down with my right foot. If anyone hurts me I'll be very upset and I may even cry... A lot. Please don't hurt me.
-Jake-
King of benchwarming and sissy ankles.

Ben said...

You're not benchwarming...You're skipping particular games to heckle.

Anchovy said...

It is like a 2 sided love triangle.

How about a 2:00 sat WILLMORE game?
I can easily report beforehand if court is free.
Anchovy

nick said...

Yes!

Topha said...

i also shall be there on saTURDay. maybe we should play at lindenwood? im totally cool with wilmoore.

Yo! Chovi! Im gonna come and get those Kona Kovers some time before saturday if thats cool. do you have any 26" tubes?

Anchovy said...

If itS nice on Sat it's willmore or mt pleasent. Full size courts. Willmore should be our default court since I can check it out, closer then mt pleasent, and bigger then tilles or lindenwood.
Toph yes I got a tube and a tire if you need it. Those tires on that Lona are better then any knobbie tire I have sittin around so patch that sidewall if you can.
Also, last night i told you I brought you wheelcovers and you were a monster dickhead and got all obnoxious. Remember? You said you didn't need any and you have some already. Remember?

Tim D. said...

Lucky, I don't know what you're talking about. The NBC Olympics site has the Men's Gold Medal game scheduled for 2PM central time.

I might be down for polo on Saturday. Depends on if the girlfriend has me doing anything before sundown. I'll check your tweets or whatever on here.

Anonymous said...

i'm up for some polo on Saturday and would love to play at Willmore again. i think its the prettiest park we've played. i would also like to see an eagle.
-Patrick

Tim D. said...

Count me in for Saturday if you guys are looking for numbers. I'll be rolling in to South City around noon.

Tim D. said...

USA crushed Finland. I'll be watching the gold medal game somewhere in STL at 2PM on Sunday. So it would be awesome if you guys are going to play tomorrow.

Anchovy said...

Tim, this is anchovy. Text me at 314-623-6907 when you get in. Looks like willmore or mt. pleasent at 2:00.
