First one in Canada, sold by Gears Bike Shop to a lucky customer!
They do indeed exist, and look KILLER in person.

So it's a road bike with TT-style brake placement?
Rear brake is underneath bottom bracket shell, front brake is behind fork?

Yes, under the chainstays near the BB shell.
Interesting bike, I've seen a few Musseuw bikes on the road here in Belgium, but not this one.
Apparently they do this to create a smaller rear 'bridge'. Maybe marketing lingo.. lots of frames nowadays with thin seatstays.

Seatstays are different from the rear bridge...


Seems like it would be more maintenance / cleaning and fewer options for brakes.

It would be interesting riding behind one of those in a line or peloton. There would be little indication that they've tapped/feathered their brakes at all. Although that is not at all the primary thing a person should be watching while riding a wheel, it is something to take note of in the periphery. But this... can't see no brakes on them (from behind)

Anyone know who actually manufactures these integrated brakes for Museeuw?

Prend....I was riding behind a Madone 7 and was entranced by the lack of brake and bridge......kinda distracted me for a moment.

This is a nice looking bike, btw

Yes, when the front brake is placed behind the fork then the down tube can not be designed in a smooth overflow to the fork and front end looks more like a Storck .
Prendrefeu has a good point there because I catch myself often checking the brake move of the guy in front when riding in a group line.
