Resigned myself to the fact that I'm not going to be playing polo any time soon and I really don't need another fixed/single speed bike.
Bought from Ben's Cycles during lockdown. They had used it as a demo frame for a year and it the paint has a few chips and scratches, but no dings or dents. Frame's made from True Temper OX Platinum and was built at Waterford Cycles, WI. Fork was built in Taiwan from good ol' 4310.
Frame is a medium, full geo attached. It does have a few unique details:
It has a pearl gray paint with sparkle blue panels and fork. Frame was full of frame saver when it arrived and still looks to be in good condition. Would benefit from having the BB shell chased and faced if you want to use an external BB. The ever-reliable UN55 will just slide right in.
Clearance-wise, I ran 40c Marathon Supremes. There was a decent amount of room in the rear, but you probably wouldn't want to go much bigger in the front.

Inc. mocked up build with ~102/103cm from ground to the top of the saddle and 75cm from the center of the bb to the top of the saddle).
£270 > £250 posted (mainland UK), £220 if you can pickup in Manchester. Price is for frame, fork, headset and seatclamp only.
Would consider selling the wheels if you're local (WI splined-fixed/free on TB14s).
Ooh, that's kinda tempting.
I'll do you a very good price. Would be a fun summer tracklocross/sscx/??? type thing...
In my head I'm building a 650b big tyred, mudguarded fixed commuter, I think I could almost make this work for it but I reckon it's a touch too big for me. Plus if I start building it in real life it costs money which I'm very short of.
i posted it on the second polo market facebook page , will keep you posted if someone ask for it.
there is another mke bruiser for sale atm for 300€ , framekit
someone from london (dan) is interested and can probably pick it up from mcr. he will contact you later on today
Bump 'n' drop.

Hey is this frame still available?
Still got this?
Yep. It's stashed away in the loft at the moment.
