Sometimes, we get some descriptions that are just elegant enough in their own special waythat there’s no need to spend precious minutes rewriting them (or energy trying to be clever or what have you), and this is just such a case. Here’s the deal:

Focale 44 is proud to introduce one of the first (if not the first) polo bike so far : the Polo Bike. Yes, the bike name is so obvious that you instantaneously know what it is all about.That Polo Bike has been developed in cooparation with a bikepolo team from Toulouse, France. Mainly with one of the crew : Théo Guerry. Starting from a Full Moon bike (Focale 44 first bike of the range), we changed the following parts to make it polo-ready :
– short and raised stem
– laidback seatpost
– confortable seat
– 28/16 gearing
– 2 chainguards
– 700x28c tires
– and last but not least 48-spoke wheels.

Retail price should remain under 600 euros in Europe. Available in november 2010.
Final word : We know that this Polo Bike may not be perfect. However, it exists, which is better than nothing.
