unfortunately, I'm reconfiguring my bike and it won't be ready by Saturday, as much as I'd love to play, but I will for sure be at maplewood on wednesday at 8:30, after class, can't wait till then. -Patrick

patrick you dont need your own bike to play polo. And if you brought it with you im sure we could "reconfigure" your bike for you. I know you dont like Mt. P. Show up, ?have fun, drink beer.

I can't make it Saturday. Bachelor party bike ride happening in the afternoon. And I am also building a different polo bike. The brown Kona will once again be available for sale. I am probably gonna steal the cranks off of it though.

We need brooms and dust pans too.

Mt. Pleasant has had a glass problem recently.

King said...

Brooms and dust pan, got it.

BJ Alaska lover. Come n get that bike! I can bring it tomorrow but it needs a tune up and I won't have time before tomorrow.

Trent! We'd love to see you before the party ride if you can make it. If not have fun. If u need cranks I may have a set.

So it's set. Polo @ mount p tomorrow at noon. Be on time and be prepared to sweep/ clean up the court. Thanks,
-Jake-

Oh shit, those boxwood wheels are really cheap, I'll probably get one. Thanks anonymous.

chocolate alaska said...

Ben said...

Seems like we're short enough people. I'm recovering today.

King said...

alcohol enduced FAIL. If we play at noon tomorrow I'm in for at least 3 hours.

My new bike and I are ready for polo tomorrow, Francis, I will bring a rear wheel that you can use until you buy another, its my official spare. -Patrick

STL Polo said...

Everyone: Show up early to do any necessary rink maintenance.

Ben said...

Connor,

Come to polo and bring your helmet cam!

Let's make some STL Polo edits!

kind of an odd format, anyone have any interest in attending this?

"Saturday, March 12, 2011 - Sunday, March 13, 2011
Host club: Lexington Bike Polo
Come on down or up to Lexington in March for some pickup and 2v2 action. We will split our courts down the middle to run four courts of insane 2v2 action.

UPDATE: Just so everyone knows, the main 2v2 event will be a hat tournament. Teams will be selected randomly and any obviously overpowered teams will be split up, a bit of polo socialism to ensure lively, balanced play. Depending on the time and number of people, there may be time to run a normal 2v2 tournament as well. Winners will be lavished with air brush spring break T-shirts.

Schedule is tentative but will probably be pickup on Saturday, tournament on Sunday. Come early if you want.
As a bonus, this event will coincide with St. Patrick's day and a likely tweed ride in town, so there will be lots of after polo shenanigans."

Does anyone know of a local place that can do Ti frame repair?

I have a broken Rt chainstay on a pivotless litespeed.. It's out of warranty (fatigue/wear and tear)

I want to have it stop drilled, welded and possibly add a small strap.

If not it just may become my new polo bike until it breaks.

Lucky said...

Don't you repair fighter jets for a living? You're telling me that there's no one on base who can weld Ti?

I don't know of anyone in town who does bikes specifically, but there's gotta be some aerospace worker around who's set up to at least try.

Funny..
We do have certified welders, but they don't:
1. Weld aircraft parts at field level
2. Weld Ti.
They build lots of support equip, handling fixtures, jigs ect.
I thought I saw a place in StL that did Ti, but now I can't find it.

nick said...

I would call Cee-Kay, They would know who in the area welds Ti.

That Lexington event could be fun if you're not looking for a super-serious polo event.

Lexington comes to our shindigs; I think we should continue going to theirs.

Plus, the Tweed Ride would be a blast, I'm sure.

Francis said...

Is anyone planning on going to COMO the next weekend? I probably can't do both, and I would rather go to COMO personally.

Anonymous said...

out for lex. (wedding to go to)
maybe for como (if a few people go–gas is expensive)

nick said...

I need my lights and cords back to do some work at my house. Does anyone know where they are? I forgot to ask on Sunday.

Lucky said...

Thank you StL Bike Polo.

Some kid just leapt off the sidewalk at me shouting "Gimme that bike!". He made full on shoulder to shoulder contact. I just rode through it and came home.

Don't they know? I can cuddle.

King said...

Haha. Good stuff lucky!

POLO TONIGHT! MAPLEWOOD. BE THERE!

Nick, Rose has your lights. Were gonna need them tonight...

chocolate alaska said...

Dear Tom Hanks, I'll be home around 4-430. It's just in my back yard. Tatyana has my number. Get it or just steel the bike from my yard. Its the one that's leaning on the table. One condition in this deal... You are not allowed to cut the handlebars at all.
