It’s good to have Tres Courdin, sales rep for Litespeed/QR in town. It’s been since Interbike Las Vegas we had seen Tres, so it is time to introduce him to the Cajun Cuisine. Don’s Seafood Hut was the choice and already Tres committed to be back next year! Tres has been very instrumental keeping Precision Bikes stocked with the top of the line ‘Litespeed and QR’ line up. If you have a chance stop by the shop, meet Tres and pick his brain. There is a wealth of knowledge…..

Jacob is the son of Renee and Stephanie Richard.
They used to live in Lafayette and now live in Houston.
Jacob has been battling Muscular Dystrophy.
Stephanie and Jacob did the Chevron Houston Half Marathon together this past weekend and I just wanted to share the story with all who know them.
They are good friends of mine and we are very proud of them.

Easton EC 90 TT Carbon Front Wheel
Retail Price: $ 800.=

Easton’s proprietary narrow-flange R4TT front hub reduces frontal spoke area by 50% for improved aerodynamics.
Combined with a new wind tunnel-tuned 90mm rim, and the new EC90TT displays lower drag than the Zipp 808 at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 degree yaw angles.
It even rivals the much deeper (and heavier) Zipp 1080 at 5 and 15 degrees.
