"Time to weld a bottle opener to the Haematoma... IMO, on the Balljack, wheelbase is too long, headtube too relaxed and too much fork rake. Yes, i take my polo way to seriously"

"If it clicks loudly and costs many multiples of $1000 then there has never been a better argument for "fixies", Cheap, silent and that comfortable feeling of fitting a stereotype ;-)"

P.S. I was also going to say in the group set-up you can have an RSS feed. With this you can take the RSS of your blogspot site and feed it in to the group so both are always updated.

Hi and thanks for joining Adelaide Cyclists. I am very excited you took up the offer to join. I think the more sites that help spread the word about interesting cycling related activities in Adelaide the better.

Thanks also for going in hard with the group. Let me know if there is anything you need help with. Can I suggest a few things. A good main group picture is an excellent way of attracting attention. I can feature it then. Get one under creative common from Flickr if you don't have one of your own. At the top of the group there is a box that you can write and embed anything in. I reckon a brief history of what you've been doing and bicycle polo in general would be good and the rules. You can embed a YouTube clip in there if you know a good one or upload a video to this site and it will offer you the embed code as well.

You can embed a Google Map of where the Adelaide matches are held and add the detail again when you play.

Every time a comment is made to the group the member will be emailed (unless you change the default email settings) so you can post results, pictures etc after every meet. Between the Polo group and the Adelaide FIxed group you should have everything covered.

In spring we are going to have a meet up of some kind. Initially just a beer with members but after that a 'co-production' with the Bicycle Institute of SA (BISA) in the form of a public event - most probably a swap meet and a few invited groups and businesses could show off things, maybe even a photography exhibition and competition. Polo would be a definite starter in my book.

Let me know if there is anything you want to know and hope to get to the next match.

Cheers
Angus

(I have an old frame I'm working on in the shed so I hope I can play sometime too!)
