Foundry Launch Party Recap

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

With the public introduction back in December, last night was our chance to celebrate Foundry Cycles.

It was a great opportunity for the local market to finally get to see the bikes up close and in person and meet just a few of the folks who have made it possible. In addition to the bikes, Whisky Parts Co. was kind enough to send along some new production handlebars, seat posts and forks for everyone to drool over. And Honey Stingers was gracious enough to send along waffles for the Jarod Toss.
