Shop Profile ~ Angry Catfish Bicycles & Coffee ~ MPLS/MN

Just two years young, Angry Catfish Bicycles and Coffee in South Minneapolis has made quite a splash on the Twin Cities Fat-Bike scene. Several of our MPLS amigos told me that Ben (General Manager) and Josh (Owner) are king-pins of the fat-bike scene thereabouts….and MPLS is nigh a small pond of fat-bikes. Josh and Ben were both “early adopters” of Fat-Bikes and both ride Mukluk(s).

I took my Moonlander along with me to get the front derailleur cable fixed from a crash during last Friday’s ride at Kettle. Ben got my shifting back in business while we talked fat-bikes and enjoyed a fresh brewed cup of coffee. Josh joined our conversation and teased me with a few hints at what we might see at Frostbike. The shop sponsors the Carver Cold Catfish Cup Race Series that we attended last weekend. Even with the lack-lustre snow-fall that this winter has produced Angry Catfish’s fat-bike sales eclipsed last years numbers by 40%. Fat-Bikes are Mui Caliente!

So if you find your self in Minneapolis, ride out to the Standish Ericson neighborhood to get your fat-bike fix.

    Awesome shop for sure! We stopped in last Thursday while we were in town for the Fatbike Frozen 40 (that was awesome by the way!) Thanks for the sea salt mocha gang.
