The F5 Adventure
Posted on July 28 2015
This F5 Touring / Road bike is another new venture for Factory Five. Built with Columbus Zona steel tubing it is incredibly strong and surprisingly lightweight. This is a 57cm frame that can handle quick downhills, long distance roads and a small to mid range touring load.
Weâ€™ve kept the geometry tight, with a horizontal top-tube to maintain the responsive feel that we love in track builds. It has a modern 1 1/8″ headtube coupled with a classic looking lugged steel fork.
Itâ€™s built to explore. Rack mounts in the back and a pair of lightweight wheels around H+Son Archetype rims. Weâ€™ve built it up with a 1×10 SRAM crankset, Shimano Deore rear derailleur and Tektro hood levers. The microshift downtube shifters not only feel great but complete this classic steel touring feel.
