And we've got a pony in the race...

A while back we struck up one of those cool endorsement deals all the kids talk about. Velocity is a proud sponsor of the one, the only, Beaver Boys from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


Who could deny their boyish good looks, Midwestern charm and oh, rad polo skilz? Not us, that's for sure. In reality, our relationship was kindled through a beer fueled wheel building discussion between Kremin and I in a Lafayette, Indiana bar. Eric calls wheel builder his day job at one of our favorite places, Ben's Cycle. So naturally, we were drawn to one another. Wheel builders...the salt of the earth. Really though, all personal and professional associations aside, these guys are the best in the world. Literally.

So they're riding our wheels (two sets of Deep Vs, one set of Chukkers), giving us feedback and helping us stay atop the dad gum heap for strong polo wheels.

They'll be rocking them this weekend at the NAHBPC in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

You can follow the action live right here.

All the best to you boys! I leave you with these encouraging words from a few of our friends in Ann Arbor:

  1. Edit: Looks like the Mounties wouldn't let Joe Burge into the country! Pierre from Madison is subbing for him and the former 'Beaver Boys' are now playing as 'Garçons Castor'!!
