This F550s was built for Glen in Beijing, China. It features a 59cm frame, lattice chainring, gran compe low flange hubs laced to H Plus Son Archetype rims and a bunch of other awesome components. Even with the pair of compact drops this bike is still super comfortable - sweet ride!
This custom yellow painted F550s is nothing short of awesome. Complete with our lattice chainring, Thomson seatpost and stem, Ominum cranks - this bike rips!
Complete with our lattice chainring and a ton of sweet components, this bike is shredding around Portland, Oregon, USA. Nice one!
The F550S represents our never-rest attitude. We’ve been working on this one-off frameset for a while and are excited to present a very limited run of something special.
The base is the same geometry as our all-round-powerhouse F550. It is light, sturdy, nimble and awesome.
We’ve refined it. Instead of an oversize down tube we’ve kept it to 1+1/8th inch throughout. It lend super-clean lines and reduce weight slightly. Weight reducing and game changing too is the addition of a carbon fork up front.
The Seatpost diameter is 27.2mm, standard 68mm bottom bracket shell and a 1+1/8th inch headset. Sizing is from the center of the BB axle to the top of the seat post – which extends slightly above the top-tube.
Instead of the industrial TIG weld we’ve applied a smoothweld at all the joints. It’s the same application as on our F5100, turning each corner of the frame into a beautiful transition between the tubes.
Then, dress it in our 2014 team graphics and race logos. The F550-S. A pedigree.
Included in the frameset is an F5 Carbon fork. It has a 35mm rake, aluminium 1+1/8th inch steerer and weighs barely a few hundred grams.
We’re really pumped on the outcome of this shot – slick, clean, crisp and down right beautiful. This F550s complete bike marks yet another evolution for Factory Five. Big thanks to Ambrous Young for putting together the photoshoot for us!
