With the bi-polar map, what would cause the ice-caps to form, but for the areas around them to not freeze?

Oh, but the areas around them do freeze. Every time there's an ice age. Of course, there's probably not going to be another ice age for a while, with all the carbon we're dumping into the atmosphere, but that's another matter entirely. As for why ice forms, it forms because it's cold there. You can see that just by putting some water in your freezer. It will turn to ice. Meanwhile, water in your refrigerator, right close by, does not freeze because it's not cold enough.

Maybe you need to read, if you don't get sea-sick from the " ;D Monstrous Hypothetical Motions ;D", the source of Tom Bishop's Bipolar Map model.
This gives the path of the sun in that model and it might or might not help.
Tom Bishop, who posts mainly on TFES.org supports the "Bipolar Map" more or less as presented in
But, be warned, you're in for a rough ride with all these "Monstrous Hypothetical Motions"
and some "interesting" ideas about astronomy.

There is an extract of the relevant section in: Where's the Love for Bipolar FET? « Reply #8 on: November 17, 2016, 11:13:30 AM »

But, in my opinion, that bi-polar continental layout introduces more problems than it solves - I'll leave it to you to find some.

And I don't believe that it really solves that problem that you raised at all.

How many times do you have to be given the same old message?
         The are ice-walls around parts of Antarctica and places where there are no ice-walls.

There is no doubt at all that there are plenty of locations around the Antarctic coast where there are no ice-walls allowing relatively easy access to the interior.

The modern-day Davis research station looks more like a space colony
- no ice-walls! (Photo: Noel Tennant)
       
Amundsen’s Antarctic Expedition landing point in the Bay of Whales, Antarctica
- no ice-walls!

For more information just Google:
