The Cat Came Back...

A few quick snaps of FiN's newly repaired vintage Panasonic Mountain Cat, now back in action with a "new" rear NoS Mavic rim and 8 speed hub...




Knowing FiN he'll be riding this into the ground for the foreseeable future, be sure to follow his Instagram account to see where he takes it.

3rd Dispatch from Midwest Correspondent

Hello from MN. I've got a couple of half-baked post ideas mixed together here for your viewing enjoyment!

In October I went out to the Witches Hat tower and the river to see some fall leaves:




This is the nice skyline view from Prospect Park.  After the park I rode over to the Franklin Avenue bridge.



Also while riding around this fall I caught a few bike mural pictures at current/former bike shops: This is  Freewheel Bike on the West Bank.



And Sunrise Cyclery on the Greenway.


And The Alt



Penn Cycle
 on Lake Street with a nice Pee-Wee Herman homage



And  the CRC Coffee Bar (RIP)



Next post will show my winter season bike conversion and maybe some snow-- stay tuned!
