FBM Bike Co gave a prototype frame of the new FBM Bike Polo. FBM, known for building solid bikes for BMXers, is now stepping into the fixed gear bike polo world.
The FBM Bike Polo Frame is hand built in Ithaca New York, while utilizing a higher bottom bracket to lessen the pedal strike on turns. A sleek head tube on the FBM polo frame to minimize toe overlap, long drop outs for cog options, v-brake bosses, and a longer top tube.
For riding a shorter wheelbase, enough clearance was made for 38mm tires. The frame pictured does not include a gusset, but will when produced. As of now, a release date is not known, but FBM is pushing for this fall. League of Bike Polo has nicknamed the frame “Battle Axe”.
