- Museeuw Bikes
The goal was to produce a complete line of race bikes. While other manufacturers have been working with carbon composites for many years, Museeuw Bikes chose to use a new innovative composite blend: a mixture of chemical fibre (carbon) and a natural fibre: flax. From the beginning they believed that this new Flax-Carbon composite had special characteristics that were suitable for use in the production of bicycle frames and components.
Johan Museeuw is still very much active in the company that is his namesake. He continues to be the face and the voice for Museeuw and is responsible for all Museeuw public relations. Even with this busy schedule he still finds time to ride. Each and every design is given his personal feedback and endorsement after extensive real-life road testing. There is always room to improve, and with our special Flax-Carbon there are unlimited opportunities to create that “prefect “ mixture of race performance and rider comfort.
In the summer of 2009 Museeuw Bikes proved scientifically that Flax-Carbon works as anticipated. Comparative tests with other well know hi-end carbon frames was carried out by Dave Luyckx, Master of Science in Composites. His test results was obtained through rigorous in-field testing under controlled conditions. The resulting data proved conclusively that that a Flax-Carbon frame absorbs the microshocks up to 20% better than any conventional carbon fiber frame.
Museeuw Bikes has also signed an agreement with the University of Ghent to do further research in order to find out how to effectively use the characteristics of Flax-Carbon for optimum results.
On June 29th in Lokeren, Belgium the home of Museeuw Bikes, the entirely redesigned Museeuw 2010 Museeuw Bicycles, and the campaign “To feel is to believe” was presented to a select audience to the press. It was greeted with universal accolades.
