How did you find a Kilroy, and are you really using it for polo? Thats a sick bike. I looked for one for a minute, but then realized they are hard to find and expensive, so I gave up. Very nice

i find it really nice. the identiti ffx fork tightens up the front end a lot, since it's shorter a-c, and 20mm rake. so, as you can see, the pedal clearance is what you'd expect. if i could change anything i'd tighten the rear triangle a bit, since it's made for 700c x 40c tyres. i have a 28c in there, and there's so much room left.
and to answer your last question, yes i am really using it for polo. tried to sell it in ireland, to get a different frame for polo, since i wasn't using it (have another bike for the road), but no-one wanted/could afford it.
all in all though, it's a really good set-up. one or two small things need tweaking, but it's solid.

Just get a 40c back there to close it up. Im still waiting on my bike but I just bought some Resist Nomads 700 x 45c Im going to be BigWheeling that shit, cant wait. How does the bike feel on the court? Seems like it would be a`slayer.

yea, it feels great. very stable, with nice whippy handling. and it's great peace of mind not worrying about the frame breaking in a crash. sure, if our paths cross you're more than welcome to have a game on it.
the only thing i could criticise on it would be lack of break mounts. it's a trick frame, so has none. i have a clamp-on v-brake plate in the mail though.

sweet id love to ride that healthy stead of yours. just go disc

I always loved the look of these frames. Wish they still made em. Awesome looking ride man.
