    i posted up in the polo visitor thread since that's where i usually spend my time here, but i'm touring from canada with my wife this july including the grand depart and if anyone has a place we could stay in london the 1-3, and in yorkshire july 4-5 it would be ace. (pm if you may)

    You should be impressed I even recall what you are talking about! Alas, I only have issue 2, featuring the inventor of Bike polo aka The Ambassador. I will ask some friends who may have the elusive issue 1 though

    hi LFGSS polo. i just got married and am turning 30 in july, and as a result my new wife and i have planned a trip to return to leeds for the grand depart and a bike tour in france. we are coming in and out of london and would love to hang out with old polo friends even without the right bikes, and if anyone could offer a place to stay july 1 (hoser holiday), 2, 3 and 27 it would be awesome!

    i'm riding schwalbe durano 26x1.35 (35) now, which may be a bit slippy, but i'm surprised no one's mentioned the marathon plus as a good choice. 26x1.35 a bit heavy, a bit pricey, but great compound, super puncture proof, and last forever. i had a pair on my polo bike for 3.5 years and probably 10,000km and only replaced them because i wanted lighter. i'd only just reached the blue strip and probably could have run them another year

    Yeah its called yokozuna cables nik thinks its the best thing ever to happen

    yokozuna is the best housing out there. not that pricey either, just a bit more than shimano

    Is there a 26" equivalent to the Dolan Pre Cursa or Pompino? Something cheap and polo-suitable rather than polo-specific if that makes sense...

    i ran a scrambler frame with a 26" long haul trucker fork with 26x1.5 tires for a while. geo worked out pretty good. you could probably find a better fork.
