Museeuw MFC 3.0 Complete Bike - SRAM eTap
Museeuw Bicycles is the brainchild of well-known Belgian cyclist Johan Museeuw, who founded the company after he retired from road racing after 16 years of professional cycling. Known as the Lion of Flanders, Johan was one of the most successful cyclists Flanders has ever seen. The Lion took the title at both the 96' World Championships and the Cobbled Classics. And in addition to being a six-time winner of the Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, Johan took second and third place on eight different occasions. His passion for racing, riding and rocking the podium led him to team up with IPA Composite's of Belgium and Billato Linea Telai, a frame builder in Italy. This union has led to the creation of a perfect match of composites, solid quality control and impeccable design in every frame and every fork.
HM Carbon and Flaxpreg Technology
In case you hadn't noticed from his resume above, Johan has more experience than most with rough roads. When he started Museeuw Bicycles, he sought to answer the age-old question — at least in the bike world — of balancing strength and performance while delivering supreme comfort. No expense was spared during the development of Museeuw carbon frames and forks. Mating High Modulus carbon and flax fibers together, Johan created a frame offering the best features of both materials. Marrying these materials together results in a combination that's greater than the sum of its parts. The fibers of the flax, placed at specific joints on the frame, soak up the shocks of the road through the frame better than carbon on its own. Since the tensile strength of the carbon varies between models, along with reinforcement with Flaxpreg in critical areas, these frames are independently tuned for vibration damping and strength.
Eternal Comfort With Race Day Response
If you want to sit in the saddle all day, putting down power and munching the miles, the MFC 1.0 and 3.0 are built for you. A progressive tour-style geometry blends strength and comfort to keep you rolling for as long as you want. The MFC 1.0 and 3.0 frames combine High Modulus carbon and Flaxpreg 2.0 — flax fibers embedded on the seatstay and fork for maximum damping — to sharpen the frame's characteristics and deliver agile handling while remaining smooth on rough surfaces. Externally, the frame's aesthetic is as smooth as its ride, with internal cable routing, electronic shifting compatibility, a BB86 bottom bracket, and a reverse aero-tapered fork. And if you want to take your touring build to the next level, the MFC 3.0 shaves grams and seconds, swapping out higher-tensile carbon fiber to deliver a stiffer, smoother road-going experience.
MFC Tour Geometry
Inspired by the cobblestone roads of the Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, the MFC Tour geometry is the product of years of methodical design by Johan Musseuw. It is designed with square reinforced tubing to give more torsional and lateral stiffness, a taller cut headtube for a more upright and stable ride and a MFC carbon fiber/Flaxpreg fork with a tapered headtube for smooth and responsive steering. The bumpiest roads of yesteryear have been crushed and re-paved in most areas, so you might just have to take this bike on a tour of your own and find those roads paths less traveled.
SRAM RED eTap
Discipline, Dedication, Consistency, Sacrifice. These are the qualities of riders riding at the highest level, and they need machinery forged of the same mettle. Powerful and pure. Light and quick. This is SRAM RED®. It’s what real advancement means: Leveraging design and innovation without restraint on performance. Helping to blur the boundaries between bicycle and athlete.
SRAM RED® eTap features race-car-inspired paddle shift logic that virtually eliminates mistaking upshifts for downshifts, while keeping shifting precise, fast, and easy. It’s a logic that is simplified for speed: right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers to change the front ring. Our revised ErgoFit™ controls seamlessly connect rider and machine with Reach Adjust™ to fit any hand. You’ll shift more, with less effort and spend less time doing it. Carbon ErgoBlade™ levers and large SRAM eTap paddles provide positive controls for rider input.
The SRAM RED® eTap® rear derailleur executes shifts the instant you demand. Wirelessly. It’s easy to set up, clean in appearance and delightfully uncomplicated. Mechanical necessities such as a carbon pulley cage, ceramic pulley bearings, and anodized alloy artfully blend with proprietary electronic advancements to deliver a shifting wonder.
SRAM Yaw™ technology changed front shifting forever, eliminating the need for trim. The SRAM RED® eTap® front derailleur makes a good thing better by executing front shifts confidently and quickly over our proprietary wireless communication protocol. The system optimizes Yaw™ adjustments as needed throughout the shift range with no need for rider input.
Already a legend in its time, the SRAM RED crankset is now available with refreshed graphics to complement our new SRAM RED eTap componentry. The SRAM RED crankset features a completely hollow construction all the way to the spider. Its hidden bolt pattern makes better use of carbon fiber to further improve stiffness and shed weight. As always, for seamless, flawless performance and Yaw™ compatibility, pair this crank with X-GlideR™ chainrings.
Security at your fingertips with a fresh look to complement SRAM RED® eTap® componentry. SRAM RED® brakes won’t slow you down. Until you’re ready. That's why the SRAM RED®brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until the moment you're ready. The patented AeroLink™ arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation. The brake body, with updated graphics, has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind. And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake. It's a better brake in every way.
It's the final piece in the drivetrain puzzle, and paired with SRAM RED eTap and RED rear derailleurs, it delivers ultra-fast, ultra-quiet shifts that will always put you in the right gear.
