When are we doing this?

BMX Bike Polo from Sara Kinney on Vimeo.



Little bike polo. We've talked about it. We haven't acted on it. We're missing out, in my opinion.

Apparently, that's full of mud/dirt.

that area was okay when we played old midwest style with a little soccer ball. It may need some work for the small ball. Maybe we could just start constructing boards and kinda take it over like the skatepark under kingshighway

so were you googling bike polo or an fbc lifetime member for life when you found that?

Anchovy said...

Never. I threw my lil bike away.

Little bike polo??? Those all looked like big bikes to me.

Ben said...

New rule:

Little Bike Polo = 12" tires or less.

maybe we could plan some kind of little bike games during a future Lock-in or friendlies hosting?

i like it!(the name) though i was only mad cuz i thought i had stripped my lockring, and at this time i only have one that i have to switch between two wheelsets. i did just order another one though, my days of playin fixed are on hold for now. i did look pretty upset though, if it wasnt me i would have been lauging my ass off. still was laughing...
Polo Fear Tip:we should just have a vimeo of me throwing my bike and helmet around and post that on the site.
-lockring is not stripped, just the shitty wheelset\hub.

One Time... said...

he sucks now....that must be from some old crappy Habitat video. All their videos were crappy. Best Video ever is either Suffer the Joy,Berserker, or Yeah Right!
Great Polo Dudes. I had lots of fun. Thanks for the wheel covers Anchovy.
-Dont forget. Sunday is the Full Moon Fiasco!

Evannn said...

I vote early polo today at like 11 and then hockey game... I'm totally down for both

Lucky said...

I've got a brunch date from 11 til 1 or so. Interested in watching the hockey game, though.

Is Friendlies open on Sunday afternoons? Do any of us have big tv's? The game will be on NBC, so no fancy cable packagaes will be required.

Evannn said...

Well if nothing gets decided b4 2 and anyone wants to watch the game let me know 618-520-3310. And if worse comes to worse Lucky we can drive around till we find a bar that's open haha

TOPHER. said...

polo wilmoore at 2. its nice outstide, come and play if you can.
fiasco tonite!

Friendlies Sports Bar and Grill said...

friendlies is probably open today. if that aint then the sports attick on manchester probably is.

Lucky said...

According to their website, friendlies is open 7 days a week. I will be there at 2 unless one of you with a tv wants to host a calmer, less smokey hockey watching gathering.

Anchovy said...

I'm planning on mt. Pleasent at 2. All should plan on that.

Ben said...

Anchovy,

Trent gave me some short poles a few months ago. I found them in my garage the other day and just built some nice mallets that are your kind of length (short). I used your beloved hardware and orange heads. I'll give them to you next time I see you. They'll be good practice/backup mallets. They just need tape...I know you like your unique tape methods.

Tim D. said...

Toph, as far as stripped lockring threads on your hub, you don't need a fucking lockring. Look up "the Italian Method" or "Rotafix". It works, I played fixed without a lockring (brakeless) for a good year or so before switching to freewheel.

And Lucky, I didn't know that Friendlies was a bar. When you said, "You're not coming to Friendlies?" I thought you were talking about next weekend and got very confused.

Anyway, I'm hungover. I'll see you guys next weekend.

Anchovy said...

Cool ben. I'm into experimetal methods for sticks. I will take them and transform them into something. I'm at mt. Pleasent now. I'm early but if any body wants to come early... I'm here.

Anchovy said...

Forget it. Will be there at 2.
