Project update 13 of 24

The final countdown.

We’ve made it to the last day of the campaign. I can’t believe that the first chapter of our journey is nearly complete.

Thank you to everyone who’s shared the journey with us so far. Throughout this project, we’ve learned a lot about what people are looking for in their next bike, how to crowdfund a new company, and we met a lot of interesting people in the process.

Thank you for your enthusiasm for the Meuse and our dream of a better bike company. Thanks for your words of encouragement, your helpful suggestions, and ultimately for your willingness to take the leap and join up with Asylum Cycles from day 1. You have been great spokespeople for us already, and we hope that you’ll continue spreading the good word in the months and years to come. We want to create the kind of community around our fledgling company that will allow us to deliver exactly the kind of bikes the most passionate of riders want to own. With your help and encouragement, Asylum can be the mouse that roars.

When I was younger, I remember getting my first Yeti mountain bike. After a few years, I attended their yearly customer-appreciation weekend. That was a special moment for me as it was the first time I felt truly connected to a company that shared the same passion for two wheels that I did. That is a special bond, and the kind of bond we’re hoping to develop with all of our supporters as we grow. Our campaign on Crowd Supply has been one part of this process.

Moving forward, Asylum wants you to know that you will have our ear as we continue to develop new products and refine existing models. Believe us when we say there is something beyond cool in the works for our next project.

As to these final few hours, please encourage people to back our project. Until midnight tonight (PST), people still have the ability to get an Asylum for an unbeatable deal. The more bikes we get pre-ordered, the better our relationship gets with the factory we’re using. This will benefit our company in the long-run.

How many bikes do you think we can get under-the-wire?

We couldn’t have gotten here without your support.

Thanks, Patrick w/Asylum
