Custom frame made in Peru by Marino Alegre Del Aguila. If you haven't heard of him yet then you are new or really out of the loop but here is his website anyway.

The geometry was designed by myself, it is a mix between a fixed-freestyle, a bmx and my old polo bike the Raleigh city sport. I went with Marino's unicrown fork a which most Marinos I have seen at tournaments haven't had. I also had a curve cut out of the seat tube to allow for the combination of short chain stays and more tire clearance.
Spec List:
Mid-bottom bracket
Cane Creek Integrated headset
Redline bmx stem and bars
175mm Madera Protocol Cranks
Tree 30T sprocket (half-link chain) 18T ACS freewheel
48 spoke wheels (Salsa Gordo rims; Surly rear free/free hub; Milwaukee front hub)
Front and Rear Deore v-brakes with a St. Cago double pull adapter

Over all it is a great polo bike thus far I have no complaints. Eventually I will upgrade the freewheel and probably put a 16T on the flip side for commuting. Probably test out some Time pedals as well.
