This was built up from a previous polo (converted kona) bike, and mostly parts that were come by used. Built the wheels myself ages ago and now have found a new use for them! Polo!
The rear was loaned to another polo bike and saw almost a full season of play, and it's still in amazing shape. Happy happy happy "anshin, anshin" "幸せになる、幸せになる"
Now I just have to learn how to play.. er .. 'better'..
