Jeff’s Custom F550s

We don’t often get time to build bikes for ourselves… but when we do – we do it in exactly the same way as we do every time. We build, we ride. That’s our way. Jeff’s latest creation is based our our latest performance F550s frameset. In our race graphics with a satin clearcoat it takes on a super-industrial edge – and kitted out with some of our favorite components it’s a real thug of a bike. Complete with our F5 lattice chainring, Miche Supertype seatpost, Thomson stem, Gran Compe low flange hubs and H Plus Son Archetype rims this bike is a thing of beauty. The F550s is currently in limited production so if you like what you see and want to build something for yourself that’s lightweight, fast and rather special then give us a shoutout any way you like.

Red Bull event this thursday

The Red Bull Music Academy has finally landed in China! They are proud to present their first club night with TOKiMONSTA at Arkham on March 20th.

TOKiMONSTA, a 2010 London RBMA Alum, has toured the world regularly as a live performer. As the first female to join Flying Lotus’ crew and label, BRAINFEEDER, she garnered a fervent following within the Los Angeles scene and beyond. Sonically, she alchemically mingles ethereal electronic moods, while adding R&B flavor and the right amount of hip-hop bounce. In the summer of 2012, she was apart of the Full Flex Express tour, the first electronic music themed train tour that traveled across Canada with Skrillex, Diplo, Pretty Lights, and Grimes.

Alongside her will be Beijing beatsmiths WordySoulspeak (Live), Siesta (RBMA 2007 alum), Arkham/STD’s own R3 and visuals by Marula. The show is FREE entry with a welcome drink for the first 500 guests.

Not only is this the first ever RBMA event in China, it’s TOKiMONSTA’s first show in China. Join us in making history together!

Date: Thursday, March 20th

Support DJ’s: WordySoulspeak, R3, Siesta

Venue: Arkham

Address: 1 South Wulumuqi Lu, Hengshan Lu

Ticket: FREE ENTRY
