    disc brakes and polo

    Open question to the polo peeps,

    are disc brakes a hazard for polo, ei a nice blade for your fingers to get cut up by? are they ok or not good for polo?

    I don't use them. Locky does and hasn't had a problem (apart from slightly bent rotors sometimes). The only person I have seen injured by them in Sydney was me when I came off the bike and the back of my head smashed into Locky's wheel. Just a small cut (which was avoidable if I had been wearing a helmet)..

    More people seem to use them in Melbourne so they must be safe

    not an essay but all that I have to say on the subject.

    Doesn't that freak player from South (the guy who got his lip smashed by Virginia's team player/boyfriend?, really nice guy who I've forgotten the name of, but he's lovely) when we had the tourni in Brisbane?

    It's a purple/blue special order frame with disks on the back covered by a sweet cage???

    I've got a rear disc, really need to get around to making a guard for it but it has been good so far, only needed a bit of truing after the worlds

    Also running a single rear disc on mine with no guard. Haven't played in a tourney on this bike. Standard 160mm rotor. Could get away with a smaller rotor and braking is more than I need for polo.
