I'll be there. Is it ok if I wear more than socks and tighty whiteys?

Lucky said...

Looks like an already built up polo bike (for a lefty) for sale in Wildwood.

Anchovy said...

Tim, im not. Sorry. I was kept frgetting to post an update.

Tim A said...

Awesome, Trent! No worries, Anchovy. Maybe next time. Any other takers?

Francis said...

Is anyone thinking about playing tonight, or is the threat of rain too great?

Evannn said...

I'm down to play tonight. Looks like the rain will hopefully hold off till later. So count me in.

Anyone else?

toph said...

STL BIKE POLO said...

PARTY TIP: If you don't go over the top, you won't get to the other side.

Polo party wooooo!

Kayce said...

Toph these are the bar extensions I was talking about the other day

To make this post polo related, Im coming saturday but the forecasts I have seen say it might rain especially later in the day.

Kayce Party Pooper said...

If it rains then we will drink and bbq under the pavilion. it will be tons of fun...

King said...

dont break bones... it sucks

Anchovy said...

Lets hear it for the former broken femur club!
Anchovy-Club President
Jake-Treasurer

toph said...

also known as Bad Newz Board.

Anchovy said...

I think either i have some or have had in the past those cinelli spaghettis. They look super familiar. OH, i think i had them on a bike i sold a while back. I was all like "what are these?"

Lucky said...

Here's what's come of the polo demo. Chip, a bigwig at Atomic Cowboy can block off Tallmage (the side street right next to the bar) for us for Saturday (like, next Saturday, June 12th) evening during the artcrank poster show. It'd be a pretty tight court, maybe only 2 vs 2. We'd have to bring all our own everything, including boards material if we want more than an 8" curb on the sides or anything behind the goals.

Yay or Nay?

King said...

Doesn't seem right to me. But obviously I am out. That would however get u dudes to build sweet bards and nets.

toph said...

im not playing in that stuff but...sounds lame. sounds like people getting hurt maybe and polo looking silly. (provide our own boards?) i say no.

BEEF said...

Doesn't sound ideal...but realistically, I wouldn't expect any of the initial few demos to be ideal.

But I would expect that with more exposure comes more ideal setups and potential hookups.

Lucky said...

As a club, we don't need boards and nets. We are blessed by the city with fully equipped roller hockey rinks. And even if we did, I don't think we'd opt for a portable version.

I hear tentative interest. I do not hear folks volunteering time, money, tools, and storage space to make a temporary rink on Tallmage St.

I have tools and storage space. No money for materials. Some time.

If we can only build low boards to keep costs down, we should use an ags ball to keep it out of the crowd.

Topher Mcgopher said...

I think if we do the demo, more people will know what we are about. Fears will subside and eventually the public will come to embrace its local Bike Polo Team.

This particular setup does not sound ideal. It is a step in the right direction. Props to Lucky for getting the ball rolling,and sorry if I said it was lame. I'ts not a lame idea not at all. I just think with more planning we could kill it.

Francis said...

Is someone bringing a grill and charcoal to this party, or should I try to figure something out?

Lucky said...

'Chovy - can you bring that GT if there's room in yer truck?

Anonymous said...

will Nick's polo party be going on all day? I can't be there till around 5 -Patrick

Anchovy said...

I can bring grill

Anchovy said...

I can bring that gt only if you have a way to bring it home. I dont want to bring it for a "viewing"

Whammy! said...

topher work until 4. topher angry! will still party with topher?!!! topher be at party (if still party then)around 4:30. Now topher sad. Topher cry all day at work. Maybe Topher get sent home early for being big baby.

TOPH said...

yo chovi. what size is your Baramon? im buying a neon green Bridgestone 53 and they have a 50cm as well. (the 53 is almost $700 cheaper) i wanted to try out some sizes before i buy. do you think i could ride it around for a second to get a feel for the size? unless its like a 56 or something like that. Then i say good day to you sir.

Run-on King said...

p.s. obviously im not asking you to bring that bike today. i just thought maybe at some time this week i could roll over to your place of residence and try it out. the bike that is....

Anchovy said...

Mine is a 56cm. A 50 will be way to small. If your gonna buy a nice njs frame, take your time and buy one that fits. dont skimp on price and get an ill fitting one. Are you the same height as Josh Picker who works at maplewood? I know he has a njs bike and isnt he more your size? Ask him. He has had a couple. Im sure he can just look at you and tell you what size would be good.

toph said...

yeah i know Josh. ill just go talk to him. i think we might be the same height. He's also my g-f's old boyfreind's bro. wierd...

nick said...

Thanks all you dudes! you are the best!

Great polo party!

Rose said...

Hey, if anyone picked up an extra pair of gloves at the end of the night, they are probably mine. I left them on the table at some point and then they got lost in the shuffle when it got dark.

Hooray full day polo party!

francis said...

Thanks a lot for coming out everyone, I had a great time.

yard sale said...

hey rose. Colin grabbed yer gloves. Yo Chovi, i got yer gold mallet.

Lucky said...

What a great day. Thanks StL bike polo, you folks are the best. Even people on the DL came out to party!

I need a BMX style stem and bars for my new polo bike, if anyone has such things laying around. Cole, Jake, Lee, Andy, I'm looking at you. For parts or advice, I don't know nothing about BMX stuff.

Grandpa Junior said...

i like this new Lucky! climbing fences, staying up late...BMX?! way to go G-PA!

Tim A said...

Trent,

I have found our third in the form of Drew D. He is currently spending the summer in MKE...training. I think we're gonna have fun!

Lucky said...

I was still in bed by 10 last night. But I did carve the hill on Ben's mini-bike. So maybe those cancel each other out.

Anchovy: me, you, and who else for NAs? Who else from St Louis can take 4-5 days off for polo in late July?

the girl said...

so i MIGHT make it to NAs. if tall george and cheri drive out there, im hitchin a ride. im going to friendlies in co springs this weekend so ill figure it out for sure then. evann, who you teamin up with (or anyone else who is going and wants to have fun)?

Kayce said...

I dont know if you would want a dirty east coaster on your team, but I would like to apply for the lucky chovi team.

Anonymous said...

Im not going to nas.
Im out for today as well (broke that seatpost)

Anchovy said...

Lucky-Ask Eugene. Jake gave him some bmx bars for his polo bike but he hasnt played in months and probably wont ever put them on anyway.
Peat Henry always has some bars and stems sitting around. Im supposed to see him later-i will ask him.

Lucky said...

Got some from Jake. Thanks. As soon as the new headset comes in, I will build up and start playing on the GT.
