If you were glued to the Mr. Do Video live stream (thank you so much to Do, Jenn, Machine, and everyone else that made the live stream happen) this past weekend during the Ladies Army 7 hardcourt bike polo tournament, then chances are that you saw the Heckler’s Alley commercial pop up a time or two. In case you decided to take a pee break during those commericals, let me tell you about the super sweet contest that Heckler’s Alley advertised during that commercial.
Bank Robber Cycles has done it again! Those artists seem to be pumping out amazing custom polo bikes every couple months, and this one that they name for someone named Nico is beautiful! Keep it up guys and I can’t wait to see these bikes in person some day. More pictures below:
If you’re unfamiliar, Pussy Punch is a slayer bike polo team made up of Kayla Story ATX, Bobbi Rogers ATX, and Kirsten White TO. To help fund their trip to San Francisco to destroy Ladies Army 7, Pussy Punch are selling some dope tank tops. They come in the heather grey that you see above, as well as a teal. If you’re interested in helping these three make it to the tournament, hit up Kayla Story HERE to get a tank top for yourself!
Here on the west coast, few of these prototype Arena Bike Polo heads have been popping up at the fun tournaments. In a way they a throw back to the days of Eighthinch and Rad Caps, but with a lightweight modern twist. The carbon cap is attached to the UHMW head using small screws. I’m not sure when, let alone IF, these will go onto the market, but I love bike hardcourt bike polo innovation so I had to share!
If you’re not familiar with the name Timothy Mason, then you need to read up on your hardcourt bike polo history. Timothy Mason is one of the sports original six. Without him and his bike messenger friends, we would all be stuck with some other boring activity to take up our time. These days you can find him making awesome leather cycling gear. One such item is his leather bike polo mallet grip. I had the pleasure to try one out last month and they are dope! To give one a try for yourself, head over to the Heckler’s Alley webstore to pick one up.
