We've made some pretty wacky requests to Phil Wood and they've come through with amazing results. So if you're looking for something that no one else has, Phil Wood will most likely deliver!

(If you don't know what this is, you're too young.)
...but I can realistically have this...
Some of us here testing it on some night mountain rides; we'll let you know how it holds up.
Lastly, don't know where you live but it's been above 60 deg here in Milwaukee for the last couple of days when it should be low 50s/high 40s. It's nice that I can still feel my toes after a ride. But when that winter hits...
(Oh I loves you internets.)

Kind of sucks that something I"ve loved just doesn't fit me anymore. Well, at least there is no shortage on amazing frames out there. So if you're like me and are in the market for a new frame we just got in some Look 464s in! Oooo they look sweet. We also have some Bianchi Super Pistas and Cinelli MASH frames in stock too, swoop em up!

Polo bikes are unique in their own way, especially my friend Eric’s, who lives and plays polo in Portland. His love for Polo and bike painting unquestionably shows with his recent Bruiser build, which he themed it after the band Heart.
-Black powder base coat with violet pearl on frame/fork
-Everything that can be powder coated is/was/going to be to match
-Reflective stickers are used as well for high visibility.
Had quite a few days of playing/practice/commuting(!) on the bike and am soooooo happy that I went with a Bruiser.
My boss(Sacha) was kind enough to braze on the V brake mounts for me and the double brake is working like a charm! Such an easy and highly beneficial polo mod it is hilarious. Props to Julian from Seattle for coming up with it. He rocks a Shimano XT lever/shifter combo where the innards of the shifter have been removed. I got a hold of an old thumb shifter with a two piece clamp so I can move it to the down sweep of the bars and not worry about clamp size. It also lets me adjust the angle and spacing of front and rear brake levers independently of one another... sweeeeeeet. Now get searching in Ben's old shifter box and see if you can dig something up:)-Wheel cover/bike is....Heart
-Parts are pretty much stock everything - nothing too fancy, just durable and polo approved.
Thanks Eric, it looks great!
