UHMW polo heads and caps are available now through our store. Machined in our very own basement and tested (for what seemed like an eternity) by our MKE Polo Team. These heads and caps are made from super durable ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, will outlast HDPE heads and come in 10 grams lighter right out of the box.

Speaking of upgrades, I found this little gem on Velo Cult's site. This is a Raleigh Competition retrofitted with a Sturmey S3X three-speed fixed hub. On top of being in impeccable shape, it's set up with great parts. I am personally a fan of drop bars with this type of flare (see Kalloy track bars, Gary Bars, Nitto RM-014). They're comfortable and take a bit less effort to engage your brakes. They're great for touring/commuting and soon I'll try them off-road.
Anyways, it's a fantastic build and it reminds me that I need to take some shop shots of the rides that roll through our doors. From Rivendel, Cinelli, Merckx, and many others, I'll try to document most if not all of them.
Alright, the day is almost done and the weekend is upon us. Have a good one!
