road frames and wheels everywhere
Looking around at all the polo bike pictures and vids and it seems most people are using bikes with 700c or road wheels and frames. It has some of us just scratching our heads on how those bikes can stand up to the abuse.
It surprises me how few people use mountain frames (or even cruiser frames) which seem to be built for a little more rough handling than road or track frames.
I'm guessing it has a lot to do with the urban environment that seems to suround hardtop polo and that those bikes are in greater supply.
