Yesterday was a big day for Asylum Cycles. We unveiled the Meuse, in all of its glory, to not only the public at large, but also Rogue Ales and their cycling team. And what better place to do it than the Rogue Ales Public House in the Pearl District?
We made the most out of the opportunity. In addition to chatting with key-members of Rogue's management, principally their CEO, we also got to taste a number of Rogue's fine ales, a highlight for sure. The Rogue team was stoked on how the bike turned out and can't wait to get their hands on it for next 'cross season. We made quite the impression on the public at large as well. Attendees were impressed with the Meuse's low-weight, stylish graphics, and overall build-quality.
Prior to the party at we also received our final concept work on the Meuse in its regular colors. Working with Graham and Shawn at Ruckus Composites, we've been able to nail down the details of how our graphics will look on the production models.
The crew at Western Bikeworks, the shop where you can test ride the Meuse, did us a solid by getting the single-speed version up and running for the event at Rogue.
By all accounts, the Meuse was very well received and we believe this was exactly the sort of event that will bring great success to the project.
Thank you to everyone who came to the event at Rogue. Also, a big thanks to everyone who has helped so far, we couldn't have made it here without you.
