Available in several sizes.
Retails at $2100.=

I’m trying to figure out who is upset here and at what. Is it the first guy with his attack on Jonathan? Is it the guy that ran to Jonathan’s defense attempting to make him fell better about the first guy’s comments, while at the same time getting mad at Ruud for a post he made,…. And getting mad at Mark for letting Ruud take care of his blog? Or, is it the guy on the Cervelo? I know the Earth Shattering guy is mad. I know Cole is not mad. Ruud is probably upset because his day was interrupted. Mark is probably upset because Ruud was hurt by the words of the Earth Shattering guy. Jason Meaux is mad because he hurt his back again by ducking from the mud being slung around. Charlie Kibbe is mad because there was a guy doing the Time Trial on a motorcycle and he didn’t get to see it. It’s completely obvious they upset Smitty. He was over it but now he’s mad at Ruud for posting his DNF last week.

It goes to show you how the SINGLE ACTION of one person making a negative comment about someone can unleash a barrage of attacks on a number of people causing MORE harm than they originally INTENDED. I hope one lesson was learned here. (Think before we speak.)

Thanks Mark and all the folks at Precision

As a response to the comments posted this morning on the LAMBRAUSAC ITT CHAMPIONSHIPS RESULTS:

My name is Ruud Vuijsters, PT, I have, more or less taken it upon myself, with Mark Miller’s approval, to run www.precisionbikes.com in a ‘blog’ format.
Never have I proclaimed to do a perfect job.
I am a PT by profession, the posting is just a hobby.
The purpose of the site is to keep customers and all whom take interest in the sport of cyclingtriathlonironmanrunning informed of the happenings at the shop, events to take place, with subsequent results, and generalized news in the world of our sports, to the best of my abilities.
Being a avid cyclist and huge fan of the sport, does not mean that I know all the local athletes. This has resulted in the past that athletes names sometimes were not included in the total finishing list.
When brought to my attention, corrections were always made, again, to the best of my abilities!

What has happened today would result in division, rather than a uniting of our athletes in this area. That is not what Mark Miller’s Precision Bikes or the webmaster are about.

After discussion late this afternoon, we have come to the conclusion that Precision Bikes reserves the right to remove any inflammatory comments, especially with name calling, posted anonymously, ASAP.
When this behavior will continue, Precision Bikes feels forced in future, to screenapprove of comments, before published.

So sorry a simple post has lead to so much negativity!

Kind regards,
Ruud Vuijsters, P.T.

Smitty burned a ton of energy while retrieving Keith Manuel’s phone out of the storm drain in Leadville.
Keith dropped it down the sewer…..
While Keith went for help, Smitty used the shitty crowbar out of the rental car and went in and got it. Smitty was representing too, had his Precision shirt on!!

This website, BunchRideFinder.com.au, claims to help you find a group ride in your area.
You can choose a road ride, mountainbike ride, or track session on the menu bar and then select which country you are interested in riding.
There is also a world map selection that lets you see rides pinpointed allover the world.
The only problem with this site is the lack of group rides to choose from.
It’s a nicely designed site, pleasant on the eyes and pretty easy to navigate.
If you’re interested in putting your group ride on this site, you can click on the ‘add a ride’ button at the top of the screen and submit your regular group ride.
Who knows, it could become a sort of “exchange program” for cyclists to find a group ride while away from home.

Donald Cleveland headed to Ironman Canada this weekend.
Good luck and safe travels to Donald!!

Cole Clements is taking care of business at the shop and headed to Ironman Louisville this weekend.
Precision Bikes wishes Cole safe travels and a great race!
