CHUNKPoloBike Build Day

We grew weary of favorite chunkbikes getting fucked up playing chunkpolo. The solution was obvious: a build-day focused only on chunkpolo bikes. Build-days also being beneficial to the soul.

The day was productive by our standards. 4 chunkpolo ponybikes were punched out in succession. Common design features were simplistic BMX-extendo-type forks combined w/ junky frames, parts from the Pile, & smaller (less-tacoable) rear wheels.

It was a primal CHUNK 666 experience - drinking beer, cutting metal and welding bikes, fucking frames up w/ sledgehammers: all in crowded, cluttered quarters, resulting in simple not-built-to-really-last CHOPPERS. The kind of chopper that's fun to tear around on but would kill your ass and knees if you rode across town.

Four bikes later (plus 2 new ones built a day or 2 before) we hit the field for about a game & a half, mostly in heavy rain, at which point the beer & welding & rain & approaching night caught up w/ everyone, & called it a day.
