Why did you choose this bike?
A friend offered it to me second hand. It’s known as the Kona Loner (a loan bike for Christchurch polo club originally). I bought it and did it up. It’s got a solid chain now and 2 sweet wheels that I scored in a knife fight competition.
How long have you played on this bike for? Have you played on anything else?
1.5 years-ish. Played my first ever polo game on my fixie I used for courier work and went crash into the fence and bent my forks, motivating me to get this bike.
What are the best things about your bike?
Wheels! They are solid 48 spokes. And I just invested in a dual brake lever. I like collecting spoke cards in the back wheel too.
What are the worst things about your bike? What would you change?
I would like to change the pedals to SPDs. A new crankset would be nice as the current one is a bit bent.
