Rustbelt Welding prototype polo frame
Whaaaaa? Saw this at Urban Velo's blog this morning. Cleveland's Rustbelt Welding appears to mostly make fences and furniture, but there's also a handful of creative frames posted on the site.
I'm not gonna lie, the frame looks a helluva lot like a Fleetvelo Joust. Well, no gussets and a shorter headtube, but even the fork looks similar. Not really improvements, but if that thing could fit big ol' fatty tires it might be worthwhile. Compare it to this photo of Travis' new 59cm Joust. Either way it's nice seeing custom polo jobs.
Marco from Cleveland (bike's owner) is apparently bringing it to the Midwestern Open in Lexington so hopefully i'll get to ride it, find out more and report back.
