Ran across this today, there are 2 more of these saddles available on amazon.  Brooks is always pricey, but always worth it.  Check it out. Kinda like when I found 1st press Swiz Vinyl at the Dischord warehouse a year after it went out of press.

The Swift HBPWC Philadelphia is a limited edition of 250 saddles, featuring red leather top and the impressed logo of the first Hardcourt Bike Polo World Championships held in Philadelphia in 2009.

The new Fixation trailer was uploaded on Easter, and it has a little Hardcourt Cameo at the 1:23 mark. Give it a look see.

From their Vimeo Page: Fixation is a true life documentary focusing on the thrilling world of single speed cycling. Shot over the course of 12 weeks, Fixation captures, for the first time, the excitement and popularity of this growing sport from all perspectives. With the resurgence of single speed bikes we discover the appeal to having only one gear. Single speeds are the original form of bicycles but technology has come so far, providing multiple speeds for faster and easier riding, yet single speeds, fixed and freewheel continue to have a strong following. The range of riders is vast, from professionals to the casual everyday rider. Their styles and motives are different but the outcome still seems to be the same, the freedom, simplicity and the challenge of having one gear is what brings them back to the basics. We will explore the full spectrum of the lifestyle: Messengers, Olympic Racing, City Riders, Bike Polo, Brakeless, Freestyle and more. Discover the passion, freedom and excitement behind only having one gear.

Again, the amount of diy know how that exists in this sport is just mind bending.  The amount of knowledge and skill needed to pull this trophy off is nothing short of impressive.  This gentleman has to have majored in sculpture, engineering, or watch making even.  Please take a look at the Modena Royal Polo Rumble Trophy making video and prepare to be amazed. If I was at this tournament, and won, I would have a few buddies walk me and my trophy to the car. Seriously, excellent job. Strong arm robbery worthy.

Our Friends in france have put together a pretty impressive Art installation they are calling Montage Terrain Dur. They put together a cool photo montage of the building and execution of their installation. Looks like a lot of love and hard work went into this. I personally love the display case with all the different types of heads used. Check it out below, and add to your bookmarks. They have a lot going on.
