Factory 5 F550


We just saw this great build courtesy of one of our favorite shops is Shanghai based Factory 5 and we thought we'd give it a plug up here on the Fyxation Bicycle Blog.  Factory 5 is a great shop that's located in the heart of Shanghai and sells a mix of high end components and their own line of track frames.  This last year they got into the parts game with the release of the F5 Lattice Chainring which is both lightweight and bad ass. 

This latest Factory 5 build features our Session 700 tires and Pilot saddle along with parts from a number of other great companies.  Check out the full details below:


The base is the same geometry as our all-round-powerhouse F550. It is light, sturdy, nimble and awesome.

We've refined it. Instead of an oversize down tube we've kept it to 1+1/8th inch throughout. It lend super-clean lines and reduce weight slightly. Weight reducing and game changing too is the addition of a carbon fork up front.

The Seatpost diameter is 27.2mm, standard 68mm bottom bracket shell and a 1+1/8th inch headset. Sizing is from the center of the BB axel to the top of the seat post - which extends slightly above the top-tube. For the frame geometry drawings [click here]

Instead of the industrial TIG weld we've applied a smoothweld at all the joints. It's the same application as on our F5100, turning each corner of the frame into a beautiful transition between the tubes.

Then, dress it in our 2014 team graphics and race logos. The F550-S. A pedigree.

Included in the frameset is an F5 Carbon fork. It has a 35mm rake, aluminium 1+1/8th inch steerer and weighs barely a few hundred grams.

We also offer a complete performance F550S build. Here's the specification
* 20/24h H+Son Archetype Rims
* Low flange Gran Compe Hubs with bladed spokes
* Fyxation session tyres
* Thomson Elite Seatpost
* Thomson X2 Ahead Stem
* Deda RHM-02 Road bars
* F5 Lattice Chainring
* Izumi Chain
* Fyxation Pilot Saddle
