New Brooks Shipment

alt

We just received a new order of Brooks so if you’re looking for a new saddle then now is good.

It’s no secret that our favorite is the B17 Special edition which comes in black, brown and honey. The special features are beautiful copper rails and hand-bashed rivets. The construction is fantastic and as they wear-in, they become perfectly attuned to your, ahem, posture.

We’ve also got a bunch of Swift saddles and other accessories. Let us know what you’re looking for.

F5 Closed for the Weekend

This weekend the F5 team will be at the Ningbo Alleycat so the workshop will be closed from Friday afternoon to monday afternoon. Have a great weekend, drop us a line if you’ve any questions and see you when we get back.

Wanna ride? We do. We will.

We didn’t come here to drive or be driven. We didn’t come here to stand in underground vestibules, or mechanical stair cases. We didn’t come here to be stuck in a jam waiting for the lights. We came to roll.

We’ve rolled so much and so far. This city is ours. Tonight we roll the obvious, we’re hitting autopilot on a cruise loop – straight through the heart of Shanghai. To a brisk beat, we will smack along the main ateries – flowing under the roads that make this city work. We will be the sub-elevated.

All rides are welcome, as long as propelling them forwards makes you sweat.

Join us. Roll with us. Find the new Shanghai. Tonight.

We gather at Factory Five (876 Jiangsu Lu, nr Huashan) between 20h30 and 21h00. Bring your bike and a helmet and your lights. We’ll bring the route and all of Shanghai before you. For a couple of hours. Tonight’s ride will be a loop through the middle of town. If you attept a crafty shortcut, we’ll finish back at Factory Five for a cold bevvie.

We’ll ride unless it’s plinky-plonking it down. Keep your eye on our facebook page or twitter feed for the latest update.

Ride with us tonight – 9pm

Oh holy night. This is it. The big warm one. We will charge spinning and roaring into the season. Into the depths of Shanghai. Into the night.

Imagine the breeze. Reach that vitesse-zenith where the warmth and the wind create a smile corridor. Roll down it. Tonight we will embrace Shanghai for all it’s worth. Tonight we will reach back in time to a quarter long departed. When we have mustered all our joules. Once our pores are prepared. Then we will stop and imbibe (and eat ice cream) and reflect on the season. After that last osmotic drop has touched down, then we will return from whence we came, or maybe Archie’s on Huashan Park.

All wheels are welcome, from small-and-round to big-and-round. Just make sure they’re powered by pedals and on those pedals are your feet.

Join us. Roll with us. Find the new Shanghai. Tonight.

We gather at Factory Five (876 Jiangsu Lu, nr Huashan) between 20h30 and 21h00. Bring your bike and a helmet and your lights. We’ll bring the route and all of Shanghai before you. For a couple of hours. Tonight’s ride will be a destnation which will be revealed before the ride. If you take a sweaty detour, join the herd there for a drink.
