Milwaukee Bicycle Co. Bruiser (small)
This is my new MBCo. Bruiser (sized small) with the grey GunKote finish built up with MBCo. 48 spoke hubs on Velo Deep-Vs, the newly redesigned Milwaukee Polo Guard and MBCo. bar end caps. After riding my Bruiser Prototype in the Medium size, which was a great bike that I kicked much ass on, this bike I believe to be the best polo bike I've ever played on. It's lighter, tighter, steeper, and my body is positioned better on it so my body moves together better with the bike it seems. There are fewer and more elegant gussets, the brake cable is routed properly with the added pulley, and it's lighter. Did I mention that this bike is designed to be indestructible? Other parts: odyssey lever and cable with a Fly U-brake and cable hanger, steel MTB bars, cheap riser stem, Chris King 1 1/8", Profile 160mm cranks with plastic platforms and a Profile spider (with the new pologuard) and White Ind. 21t F/W, and an Origin8 pivotal post with an Odyssey saddle (i'm trying this setup cuz the rails on my saddles always bend... these are supposed to be lighter and stronger, so far so good) I think this bike improved my game... idk, too early to tell i guess all iknow is that i've been SLAYING on this thing. I'll be riding this bad boy in Seattle in a couple days at the 1st NAHCBPC! See y'all there!
p.s. feel free to test ride my bike if you see me between games, i'll have a 20t fixed cog on the flipflop if you want to try it fixed.
