Hello Asylum backers,
Happy Friday, we have some great news. We received our first batch of frames yesterday afternoon. In a fit of joy, box cutters were brandished and cardboard began flying all over our warehouse as we began inspecting this long-awaited product.
The quality is outstanding. Take a look for yourself.
Initial frames passed QC with flying colors. We inspected a 58cm and 52.5 in the Matte UD Asylum graphics scheme. Everything (frame, frame decals, serial number placement, headset, crown-race, etc.) checked out. Following that round of checks, we began building our first round of complete bikes.
Once we finish up the rest of our initial quality control checks early next week, we'll enter build and ship mode at full-speed. I will be in touch with our Portland and Seattle area customers to arrange pick up.
While we would have preferred getting these bikes to you sooner, we're happy that the bikes are finally here and they look fantastic. Thanks for your patience throughout this journey.
Look for a progress update next week.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions.
