Sillgey Piccolo. So far, I can see some definite pluses and minuses for this rig as a polo bike... and I haven't even played a game on it yet. Yes, those are 20" wheels. I added a shot (taken by Josh B) of me playing on this silly little thing to get a better sense of proportion.
Update: So, after playing polo on this bike for 3 months, winning the MMI 2v2 tournament, and finishing 2nd at ESPI 4 all riding this bike I think got to know it pretty well. That said, I have de-commissioned it as my polo bike and am back on the Univega (which was like reconnecting with a long lost lover) also, i'll start riding a Milwaukee Bruiser soon and this makes the transition to 700c smother. But in the meantime, I have built her up with parts I had lying around as brakeless/fixed geared at 52x15 for shits and giggles. with the 20in wheels, this ratio is equal to my work bike with 700c geared 49x18... I'm even gonna ride it for work tomorrow.

How much was this lil guy? I want one soso bad
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

THATS AWESOME. I talked to a local retailer about getting them in. They seemed responsive.

Thats rad Burge!Does it feel like your a clown when riding? Whats the wheel base compared to your other purple beast? I would predict narrower.

compared to my other purple beast the wheelbase measured axel to axel is 2 inches shorter and it's 10" shorter from the front of the front tire to the back of the rear tire. it's very strange to get used to. but at least the bb is at the same height and body is positioned about the same as before so swinging my mallet and connecting with shots is the same.

i have a 2 complaints about this bike one there should be bmx type clearance for big wheels and tires 2 its not as stiff as it should be but it does turn around like a mofo i think it would be pretty interesting fixed
MKE!

140x65

the 20" wheels sounds good for quick manuvers and such but the frame doesnt fit bmx wheels and how strong are those wheels...and the availability of tires?

ps i should have read kremins above as its kinda same....
