My bike makes money!! werrr dey do dat at??
LEGGO BITCH LEGGO!!!
Nice bike and nice shields.
Been waitin' to see a thrasher built up for polo. NICE!
YOUR BIKE HAS WAY NICER SHIT THAN MINE! Just thought I'd remind you
Um basically your bike's the ish, the pics don't do it justice... For my next polo whip I'm debating building up a Thrasher or a Redline Urbis Nox. What length mallet head are you rocking these days? Looks lethal!
mash on or get mashed up.
SAY WORD! This thing holds up to all kinds of abuse, I have broken every bike I have owned and about every part you can think of, so far so good on this build. That Redline looks sweet too, most Redline stuff has the reputation for being able to tolerate a lot of crap too. I say apples and oranges!
Mallet head? Well actually I just switched from using a 4 1/2" head to a 3" head last week, the thing is so weird, but if I get used to it I can make two heads out of one piece of that white ish everyone is rockin. So far, its good for control as it is so light, but is awkward to shoot with since there is really no head weight to "feel" the orientation. I still hit it hard, but more shanked shots, ima get it tho!!

For fun see if you can find a thrift store/cheap junior hockey stick to play with. I've been messing around with them and the shape lets you know the orientation without looking. They go hard on em. A pain to mount a head on though, I use a keyhole saw and a file to get the shape. I'm looking for a used or cheap graphite (composite) junior stick cause they're pretty light and will never break. They're pretty expensive to buy new.
Hey chuckberry, I was wondering if you can let me know what you think about your bike. Thats if you still ride the Thasher. Im seriously thinking of getting one. Well its between the Thrasher and an Urbis. Im starting to lean towards the Thrasher cause it looks like it has a shorter wheelbase.
What size is your frame, and do you know your wheelbase? Im wondering about its handling, speed, it toe overlap, and pedal strikes. Do you still run no brakes, I want to put discs on mine. Which means changing hubs and welding tabs. Anyway, anything would help on this bike as I dont know anyone with one or have ever seen one in person, and am only going on the the thought that a freestyle type bike is best for polo.
Love it! Urbis has had quite a few issues with frame structure and I don't know why. If you go that route go Urbis Nox. What can I tell about the rest? Well, it rides great and I have great control over it, I have some overlap but I also had 47c tires on this thing. No pedal strikes with 165mm cranks. I don't think this is the best bike for all polo, but it is the best for me *currently available*. I have a bike that I may be selling... you may be interested? email me if you want to talk about it.
