Recently I helped a friend put a brand new mallet together. I won’t name names but the shaft still required a drop-nut type of assembly, and the head didn’t come predrilled. I know there can be something cathartic about building your own mallet before a big tournament, but I felt like I was in the dark ages have to align a drop-nut perfectly, having to line up holes in the head so that the shaft sites at a perfect 90 degree angle. It was a comforting reminder that Fixcraft has brought us into a golden age of bike polo equipment. Here is our review of the amazing pieces that make up a complete hardcourt bike polo specific mallet:
Now that is has been a few months since the release of the Enforcer bike polo frameset, we wanted to share complete build pictures from each of the 6 sizes that we offer. I want to thank everyone who has purchased a frameset from us this far. We are actually down to only 14 frames left in the first run and we are beyond ecstatic for all of the support that everyone has shown us thus far. Remember that all frameset specs can be found HERE! And here they are, all frame build up pictures:
Straight from the mouth of Swallow’s Bike Polo: “After years of testing and analysis we have developed the ultimate shaft for pickup and tournament play. Light but strong, durable yet easy to handle over a day of play. This shaft is the ultimate all purpose piece of equipment. Coming with our well tested long taper to avoid dings and 7075 T6 extruded aluminium for increased strength, bend resistance and durability.”
They are on sale right now and you can pick some up HERE!
We love seeing more unique team swag than your typical t-shirts and hoodies. We loved The Means socks that were released last summer and we love these socks coming from 059 Bike Polo. For those of you who are unaware, 059 Bike Polo is a hardcourt bike polo team from the Carpi, Italy. And for those of you who are interested in picking up a pair of socks to support the team, you can send a email to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest in a pair!
Earlier this week Fixcraft released the Lifeline: Dual Long Pull Lever. We have seen sub-par dual pull levers on the market for years now (outside of the Lucky lever, those were legit!), so it’s great to see one hit the market that is going to actual do its job. If you’re just starting out, this is definitely what I would recommend for you! You can pick one up HERE!
