Another F5 prototype up for grabs here. This lady cruiser measures 49cm C-T, meaning it can fit most women. It comes complete with a Shimano Alfina 8-speed rear hub, mud guards, front brake and super comfortable 32c tyres. Great for rolling around the city, especially for those who enjoy skirts or dresses. Available now for 8,000CNY.
Something thatâ€™s going to be used everyday needs to be simple. This F5 Cargo bike measures 50cm C-TÂ and has been built with a SRAM Automatix 2-speed hub. This helps combine a good city gearing range, without the fuss and expense of extra rings or derailleurs. It shifts automatically when you bring it up to speed and is laced to TB14 black rims.
Elsewhere weâ€™re talking a fine selection of F5 Select components, this is a build that can carry anything you need through hectic traffic. Available now for just 8,500CNY.
2016 is the year of the MonkeyÂ and we’re goin’ ape up in here. Join us as we celebrate SIXÂ years of FACTORY FIVE, starting with our annual partyÂ on Friday, January 29th.
Those that have supported us over the years know thatÂ weâ€™re really a community at F5HQ and we think of you as our real family â€“ so as tradition dictates weâ€™ll be giving Hongbao red-envelopes to everybody who comes.

Thatâ€™s big!
Vedett have hooked us up with FREE draft beer for the night and a bunch of bottles to be included inside the Hongbaos. Dangerous?

Our friends at 8BARÂ just released their new KRZBERG V6 frameset and sent us a few so that local riders in Shanghai can grab one instead of having to order all the way from Germany. The frames are triple butted 6 series smooth welded aluminum, have a tapered head tube and include an integrated headset. Great geometry and perfect for ripping around town.
We’ve got the Team Edition, Matte Black, Matte Raw and Midnight Blue – respectively from 4,210RMB to 4,785RMB. Best to roll through and check them out for yourself!
