The nasty thing of the topic under the link is not only the fact that it is broken, but also that it is focused on the 'economics' of a repair. It is simple: You broke it, you fix it. Plus next time don't take a 753 frame for bikepolo.

Cycle polo eats classic road bikes as does the Government scrappage scheme eat classic British motors.... :-(

Word on faux street is that MTBs are the way forward for those with the hole, because they're tougher - bad news for us MTB fans then. Best get them affordable classic frames stored away now... ;-)

I thought polo was about the hybrid now?

it's one think trashing a basic 501 but 753 :cry: . It's the cycling equivalent of this!
