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.
