Musseuw is Belgium’s answer to the road bike question. Museeuw was definitely not the first when it comes to carbon bicycles, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have the wherewithal to make carbon fiber better. Museeuw did something different with their formula of late by adding in Flax fiber. By creating a weave of flax that is included in the sculpting of the carbon frame they accomplished a couple things. First, the flax fiber is an organic structure, therefore each fiber differs from the next, which prevents vibrations going directly from the road and up into your body. Now carbon already does this, but flax is better at it. Second, the flax does not sacrifice weight or stiffness to do so. Museeuw will treat you right if you have grown tired of those aches and pains you get after a long ride on a bumpy road.
