This past weekend we took the fast train to Beijing to check out the annual Fixed Gear Open.
The event had close to 500 participants, a ton of display tents and some pretty cool events. We were busy wheelin’ and dealin’ at our booth, but managed to get a couple shots from the daily activities. There was some bike polo, a small criterium, a mini drome and a few fixed gear freestyle events. It was great to see the growth of the scene and all the young riders eager to do whip skids. Hope to catch you all next year!
This little 52cm custom F550 was painted in a celeste blue and completed with all black components. A comfortable set of riser bars with Fyxation BMX grips, deep dish 700c rims and a 16T freewheel. Perfect for city cruising!
One of our club riders, Sonja, has a great pair of SPD shoes up for grabs. They’ve been worn once and didn’t fit, so are being sold at a cut price.

This F550s was built for Glen in Beijing, China. It features a 59cm frame, lattice chainring, gran compe low flange hubs laced to H Plus Son Archetype rims and a bunch of other awesome components. Even with the pair of compact drops this bike is still super comfortable – sweet ride!
Complete with our lattice chainring and a ton of sweet components, this bike is shredding around Portland, Oregon, USA. Nice one!
Weâ€™re really pumped about the outcome of this shot â€“ slick, clean, crisp and down right beautiful. This F550s complete bike marks yet another evolution for Factory Five. Big thanks to Ambrous Young for putting together the photoshoot for us!
