Puma Farka Cycling Club.
Downers Grove, IL.
Thank God the road season is coming to a wrap and it is time to get on the wider bikes. As of late I have been enjoying my Steamroller. It is a fine machine and with some riser bars, All City Grips and a 42x15 I love riding the thing. Puma Farka was out this morning at 7 a.m. at the Bucks in D.G. and we had a great ride. Trapper and I caught a landscaping truck and rode 35mph into a headwind. I received a Cateye doublewireless and spun out at 144rpms. What a dork.
My new Job at Hartley's Cycle in Hinsdale has been fantastic. Ken and I go back a long time and are good friends. We have great customer service and have great customers. We sell Giant, Cannondale, Eddy Merckx, Surly, Electra, Gunnar, Waterford and Bianchi.
In the service department I have Miroslav and Snake. They have both been working with me for a very long time.
We are starting to bring in some Fat Bikes for the fall and winter season. At about 2400 bucks the Surly MOONlander is the best fat bike out there.
So, as the weather continues to change we will be having excursions out to Palos Hills and Waterfall Glen. I have to regain some trails that have grown over.

|Saw this awesome idea from customer. Put the cable in, tighten in the gear you like and then anchor it. I think I would add the barrel adjuster to fine tune it easier. Nice, really nice.|
