Merry Christmas from Factory Five

Wherever you are. Whatever you ride. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from all of us. Here at Factory Five we’ve each rolled our own ways for the holidays. We’re checking under the tree right now for anything bike-shaped. Hope you all get what you wish for. To be honest, we already did. This year has been phenomenal and we couldn’t have done it without you. More on that later. So, raise a glass to everything. Have a lovely time and see you on the flip-side.

Christmas Beer Bash!

Ho ho ho h0! It’s that time of year again for the 3rd Annual Christmas Beer Bash! Bring your friends! Bring you family! Bring your winter warmers! We’ll be cruising around town, popping into a few convenience stores and getting down with some general mirth and merriment. Gold Cider will be sponsoring warm mulled cider at the start of the day, so show up on time! There may or may not be someone pouring cider in a sweet costume. We’re gonna end the night at Archie’s new place on Kaixuan Rd (address to come). Pre-register at to secure one of our limited-quantity Santa hats. When: Saturday, December 15th @ 2pm Where: Factory Five Address: 876 Jiangsu Rd near Huashan Rd 地址:江苏路876号5号楼靠近华山路

F550: Nick

Nick’s pure red F550 build maintains a classic edge with mostly silver components, box rims and matching Brooks B17 Special and honey wrap. This is a custom finish, with Chinese stars down the seat tube and the characters for shanghai (上海) along the top tube. In China-red it stands out wonderfully. We also found some gumwall tyres and gold chain to add the finishing touches – red, silver, gold, brown, beautiful.

F5 Gift Cards

We know. Sometimes riders can be hard to buy for. Who knows what they actually want or haven’t got already? As bike nerds, let’s be honest, we’ve researched everything to the ninth degree already – only we know for sure.

Enter the F5 gift card. Now you can give that loved one exactly what they want; the freedom to buy whatever it is they need, at their own pace, probably with a beer in their hand.

We have them starting at CNY 50 so no matter what your budget, there’ll be something for them. We can also put together a build sheet for a complete bike. You can set the outline, we’ll do the rest and they can come in to pick it up, or fine tune it however they like.

The cards also work in our online store. Easy. Give the gift of fixed-gear this holiday season and bring a wry-cheeky-smile to their face.
