Horse Cycles Polo Bike
A few weeks back I ended up meeting and playing on a team with Thomas Callahan at a polo tournament in Rochester where neither of us showed up with complete teams. Ends up that he’s the man behind Horse Cycles out of Brooklyn, NY and was playing on his own custom polo bike. When you’re the builder and customer you can spare no expense, like an in-house machined plate crown, Paragon Machine Works sliding dropouts, front and rear disc compatibility, a triple triangle frame and an over the top integrated seatmast. The curved seat tube and steep angles keep the wheelbase tight even for such a large bike, and if the polo bug wears off the driveside dropout can be swapped for one with a derailleur hanger if you want gears and there are all of the braze-ons to accommodate the additional cables. See www.horsecycles.com for more info on the operation as a whole.
