In case you forgot, yesterday was April Fool’s day. If you thought that a company called Heckler’s Alley wasn’t going to try to heckle the world with an April Fool’s joke, then you are taking bike polo too seriously. Fixcraft owner Sean Ingram had this to say about the prank, “Fixcraft is not amused…” Despite it all, you can read the official April Fool’s prank press release here:
We are sad to announce that Heckler’s Alley is going out of business. Those dumb-dumbs thought they could make a living off of bike polo, and like many before them, they failed. You can read the official press release below:
When looking to make the jump from a converted old bike to a bike with more bike polo specific geometry, people on a budget usually go one of two routes: if they are looking for a 26″ hardcourt bike polo framset, then they go with a Marino Bike, and if they are looking for a 700c hardcourt bike polo frameset, then they either go with an EighthInch Scrambler or a Pake Rum Runner.
The Swiss delicacy that is Milk Bike Polo have added another item to their endless utility knife. They are now offering their Ninja head, their Simple Cap head, and their Hollow Cap head in 115mm length (which is roughly ~4.5 in.). This is 10mm shorter than the standard head that they have sold in the past. If you like a little less head, then pick up a new hardcourt bike polo head from Milk Bike Polo HERE!
I love Black Star Bags, and it’s not just because my teammate works there. I love how the owner, Dave Stoops, stays true to his roots when guiding the future of the company. He is a former messenger and longtime hardcourt bike polo player, and he makes products to help advance the bags of the messengers and bike polo players of tomorrow.
