  2. hey guys…just would send some good wishes and a big wow to your webside and the organisation of this great national network…move on…daniel

  3. Just a small note to those using 20″ wheels, I have found a supplier that has colored tyres. You would be looking at $39.95 each in Blue, Red, and Yellow (I think)….. Just drop us a line or pop into the store and let us know what you would like…..

    Cheers

  4. Hey Daniel, Thanks for the note, I’ll pass the word around to the rest of the crew. Thanks for being the main man in Brisbane, connecting to Bikepolo.com.au

    It’s been good to have interstate visitors, and more than once too! (Brisbane is the only bikepolo city in Australia I havne’t played in… yet, but I definetly plan to!)

    See you at the nationals!

    Hey Nathan, Thanks for the note, I’ll check out the link and circulate. if you have any 26 or 700 options then count me in :)

  5. We are the Frankston Chapter – we came and checked out the Nationals on Sunday – and fell in love! This sport is for us!! How do we register a team to play you guys??? We have found an old basketball court we can use, and are all madly building bikes we can use and cutting off our ski poles! What tips have you got for us all??? We were the mad group with all the crazy retro bikes and dragsters watching!!

  6. On equestion guys – we noticed most of the bikes had small chain rings – what are the specs of a typical chainset and crank kit – and what cog on the rear? any tips??

  7. Hey Bowie,send us an e-mail with your contact details. Let us know when you’re playing, we’ll add it to the Next Sessions/Locations on the site. I’m sure a few of us would love to come down and play in Frankston (maybe answer all your questions without so much typing.)

    Personally I run a 30:16 gear ratio, but whatever works for you.

  8. Urbancyclist – we have a regular game now every Monday night at 6.30pm at the Seaford Football Ground – Seaford Rd. There is a court between the cricket nets at the far end of the oval which is perfect! We played this week and had ten different players – had a ball. We shot some video and took stacks of pics which I will publish when I get them from my mad BP mates!! We would LOVE to see anyone else join us for a game – we’re still very much beginners but experienced riders, so our skills are improving quickly….

    My contact details are: bowiesimon@yahoo.com

  10. How can I edit the incorrect castlemaine info on the home page side-bar? We don’t play strictly fortnightly & we’ve changed courts lately. Our page is always up to date but the side-bar doesn’t reflect this…

  19. Hi. I’m a new player to Polo from Sydney. I’m heading down to check out the Tournament, and catch up with a friend over the weekend. I’ll be around Saturday. If there’s a chance to participate it would be cool, but as I’m new, I’m happy to watch and enjoy the festivities. Help out… That, and I don’t have any gear of my own as yet, which doesn’t help. See you then.
