Bike Polo Handlebars and Stems
This picture shows the disadvantage of standard mountain
bike bars, which make it difficult to hit on the near (left) side of the
bike. The player shown here is reaching under his arm to hit, which prevents
him from generating any power. The other three players are using our
bars, and would have no such difficulty.
Polo Handlebar: $10
Patented design to facilitate strokes on either side of the bike.
Hard Rubber Grips: $7.50
Solid grips cover bar ends; no plugs required.
150mm reach, 12 degree rise. Recommended for use
polo handlebar to keep it from hitting one's knees.
Quill Stem: $30
Available in 22.2mm, 25.4mm, and 28.6mm sizes; polished silver finish
A-head stem: $30
Available in 1" and 1-1/8" sizes; shown in black, but currently
only with polished silver finish.
Stem risers can be used to adjust the height of the
stem, so that the handlebars can be set at the same height as the seat,
which is considered ideal for bike polo.
A-head stem risers (top) raise an a-head stem either 3.5" (top left)
or 2.5" (top right). $25.00 apiece.
Quill stem risers (bottom) raise a 22.2mm quill stem 4.0" (bottom
right), or can be used to adapt a 21.1mm quill fork to a 25.4mm a-head
stem when combined with a 1mm shim (21.1mm stem riser bottom left; shim
bottom center). The 22.2mm stem riser can also be used with a 25.4mm a-head
stem if one wants to raise the bars less than 4". Quill stem riser: $25.00
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COMBINATION OF A QUILL STEM RISER AND AN A-HEAD
STEM SHOULD BE USED ONLY FOR BIKE POLO ON A RELATIVELY SMOOTH FIELD,
AND NOT FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING ON ROUGH TERRAIN.
