    I started emailing the major retailers in July 2007 for this bike. Mark Johnson of Precision Tandems http://www.precisiontandems.com/index.html replied back to the many, many emails answering every question with large 300-500 word replies - and I asked a lot of questions.

    I need to thank TandemGeek and Zonatandem for their mentorship and answers to numerous questions.

    Summer 2008 is gonna be great!

    Congratulations.

    Please report how you like the rig once you ride it. Also, how well to 40h front wheel handles.

    Was that your triple I saw on the Bushnell site? Full size captain and two small stokers? Very clean looking machine.

    I just looked on the Bushnell site (http://www.bushnelltandems.com/) and I don't see any triples.

    So, that would be a Precision Triplet by Bushnell? Either way, it should be a great ride. Congrats.

    Will do. I don't return to the States until early June. I'll post pics and review then. I wanted the Rolf Tandem wheels, but I was scared to put my family on them. I think the Dyads will give us trouble free miles for a long time.

    Very nice looking bike. What will be your method of transport for the bike?

    I assume you are still deployed, stay safe.

    A Harbor Freight trailer. There's not a roof top rack system for my car.


    Thanks for the thought. 411 days down. 29 days to go! (trip #2)

    My brother is at 520 down and ~30 to go!

    I hope the bike gives you some space to decompress. My family and I thank you for your service. Although, in the end it is still "Beat Army"!
