I felt compelled to write this in response to the comment left re: the Lake Fausse Point Social Ride, though it has been on my heart on several prior occasions. No intent to unlock a discussion, though feel free to email me at: precisionbikes@gmail. com


I would like to encourage anyone to leave comments on our posts. However when criticizing, please do it in a constructive manner. When addressing someone, please do so by name, rather than by generalizing, (we have 40 or more riders wearing the ‘Precision Bikes’ kit, it does not seem right to me, assuming the actions of few, represent the entire Precision Bikes team/group). Furthermore I’d like to encourage everybody to sign with first and last name.
Also be aware of the option to address the webmaster directly by emailing at precisionbikes@gmail.com
I thank you kindly for keeping this site a friendly, informative and encouraging medium, supporting our shop and our beloved sport.

The Webmaster;)

Precision Bikes made its presence known at the Lake Fausse Point social ride.
Word had it Jed Darby, in spite of a serious crash on Saturday, was back in the saddle!
Jed went down at about 30mph, when apparently his chain snapped and with all resistance gone, Jed flew over the handlebars and landed on his head!
Thanks God things turned out, relative alright.

It’s only the ‘young at heart’ that recover this quick;)


Early results are in!

Sean Schnur won the race with a time of 3:10, Donald Cleveland was 3rd and Neil Rome 5th, Will Jones 6th and Tim Thomas 10th.

Precision Bikes did a first ‘test-run’ of the Look Keo Fit System yesterday. The system aims to help cyclists select the best cleat, based on angular float and also to find the optimum cleat position on the shoe.
This will provide cyclists with another way of making sure they are positioned in a correct way on their bike. Often knee and/or hip problems can be caused by incorrect cleat positioning.
This aside of other ‘misfits’ of saddle height, fore/aft position of the saddle, length of the stem or height of the handlebars.
In order to check your cleats, schedule an appointment with us, by either email or phone.
Cost of the Look Keo Fit System session is $50.=

We’ll be riding tomorrow,
