I had this frame hanging around waiting for me to build it up. I had it powdercoated and started to build it as my around the town beater. But, then I started the Ann Arbor, MI polo game up and it got setup for polo. It is running low low gears, platform pedals, and a rear brake (dia compe w/ Dia Compe MTB lever). The top tube pad comes in handy for protecting the "equipment" for those quick dismounts that often happen. It has worked great, but the fork is bent and I need to straight that out. The current pictured rear wheel is its 4th. This is the third rim laced to that hub. All others got trashed playing polo. I also trashed a tubular rear wheel just before I got the current one built up.
