Framekit 26″

From: 550,00 

Our first Bike Polo specific frame, made from high strength aluminium. Extensive prototyping and years of experience led to a whole list of improvements since the first version, which make this an extremely durable and tough frame at reasonable weight. It comes with a 5 year warranty against defect in material and workmanship.

Equipped with our signature sliding dropouts, which allows for changing gears on single speed setups with no tools needed. Install two chainring-sprocket combinations with the same tooth-count, just open the quick release and switch the chain between the two gears before putting the wheel back in the dropout and tightening it again. Also great for polo touring setups because optional derailleur dropouts allow for using a regular shifter seup.

Developed in collaboration with, (ab-)used and approved by the famous EDISONS, who are former European Vice-Champions and 5th in the world, and won the German championships countless times. Robert from Octopussy just won European Championships 2018 on this frame.

Available as framekit or frame only. Raw frames are usually in stock, delivery time is 1-3 days for Germany, 1-3 weeks for customers outside of Germany, depending on the country of destination. Add another 1-2 weeks for custom paintjobs.

A few words on top tube length: This frame is designed to give the rider a comfortable, laid back riding position on the bike, without needing to run a standard 100 mm stem (which would increase the travel radius on the riders hands while turning). As the top tube is a bit longer than usual, subtract 25 mm from your normal stem length to maintain your usual riding position. Weight distribution is shifted towards the rear wheel, allowing for easier wheelie-turns.

TT – effective top tube length, measured horizontally
ST – seat tube length from center of bottom bracket to center of top tube
HTA – head tube angle
STA – seat tube angle
BB dr. – bottom bracket drop
WB – wheel base
CS – Chain stay length
