2016 was a massive year for us at F5. We released new products and frames, raced in over 15 countries, announced China’s first long distance endurance race, and of course built some damn beautiful bicycles. Once again a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has supported us along the way – if it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t be here.
Taking a look back at 2016 we’ve drawn up our yearly infographic consisting of statistics and things we’ve learned about ourselves. On top of that, we’ve rounded up our top 5 favorite builds, and our top 5 favorite rides (as in, adventures). Our slogan is after all, we build – we ride. Happy New Year!
