China Classic : Shanghai Cruiser

This classic rebuild features the ultra rare China Post green frame, with both front and rear mud guards. Complete with a BROOKS saddle, all chrome components and some killer cruiser bars, it's the perfect city bike to cruise around Shanghai - rain or shine. We even threw on a pair of 38c gumwall tyres so that this beautiful ride can rip over anything!


PAUL Royal Flush Crankset

Paul Component Engineering makes some of the most precise and beautiful components in the world. They've been doing it for 20 years and they'll be doing it for many to come. One of their most reputable products is the unique Royal Flush Crankset - which features exactly what it sounds like; a heart, spade, club and diamond. Like all products we sell and distribute we test everything ourselves first.

We first started riding PAUL components back in 2009, before we had Factory Five. Flash forwards to 2014 and we're the PAUL distributor in China.5 years later and our PAUL components are still riding just as good as the day we pulled them out of the box. Notably the Royal Flush Crankset, which has seen over 30,000Km and all kinds of terrain. It's been ridden on the road, through the mud, splashed in the rain and even guzzled some snow. After all that the teeth are not sharked, the crank arms are still stiff and straight and the anodize finish is as good as new.

We're fully stocked on all PAUL cranksets, so if this sounds like the crank for you then be sure to get in touch. These things will endure the harshest conditions and last for years and years - It's this attention to craft and performance that has made Paul's work truly iconic.

F5100 Custom : Felix

It's not too often that we build the F5100 unless it's going to be something extremely special. When we heard what Felix wanted we just couldn't say no. A satin clearcoat with gold decals, 1" carbon fork, and all gold and brown trimmings sounded absolutely awesome. The end result is great and can be seen on the streets of Shanghai this fall!

YNOT Toronto Shop Visit

Last week we had the pleasure of visiting the new YNOT retail shop in downtown Toronto, Canada. Their space is located on Queen Street West in the heart of the city, a fantastic location to draw in local cyclists and commuters. Using almost entirely refurbished materials, YNOT managed to put together a pretty cool store front that really shows the background behind their company. With sewing machines ready to service any of their products or create custom orders on demand, it's like a mini warehouse - studio - hangout all in one.

Inside the shop you'll find all of their killer products, including a small selection of apparel, a huge array of toe straps, and their new 2014 bag designs. We're extremely proud to be representing their brand in China and have some great things in the works together for next year. If you're ever in Toronto, be sure to check out their shop.

Chainrings Across China

Our Lattice Chainring is being picked up all across China. We're super pumped to see it around the world, and even more excited when it shows up on a sick build on the mainland. Here's a few photos and details of stores where you can pick up our 78gram, dual plane ring...

Factory Five masterclass with Berluti

We're collaborating with Berluti on a project to celebrate the beauty of bicycles. Started in 1895, Berluti crafts gentlemen's custom leather-ware, shoes and bags including bicycle accessories. It seemed only a natural fit for us to get together with them on a mission to encapsulate and present the realm of bespoke cycling.

We started yesterday in Berluti's Shanghai 'Masion' in the Pudong IFC Mall. As a flagship store, it is a grand, two-story space which feels more like a swanky clubhouse than a store. We started the session in matching style with a glass of Dom Pérignon.

A select group of Berluit VIP customers had been invited to the masterclass. After an introduction to fixed-gear riding by Jeff and a demonstration of Brooks bar-wrapping by Tyler, we pulled out a selection of bars and surprised them with a chance to try themselves.

The results were much better than we expected! Some expertly wrapped bars with a lot of concentration and plenty of laughs. Everybody had a great time, and more importantly our bicycle world gained a few new subscribers. Next stop, Chengdu!

F550 Custom : Jordan

This beautiful custom F550 is painted in our 2014 team race graphics with an aquatic neon blue finishing touch inside the rear stays. Complete with a set of Control Tech road bars and brake hoods, the compact geometry lends well to making this single speed the perfect mix between track and road. Killer build!
