Fixed-Gear Bicycles by Factory Five

View all 12 Photos

The words “Made in China” take on an entirely new connotation for Factory Five productions. The gilded words printed on the bike frames of Factory Five’s fixed-gear bicycles carry a sense of both ownership and community. The custom-built bikes feature no-fuss frames and a sleek look that lets the construction and quality of each bike speak for itself. The founders bring a history of retrofitting old Chinese frames, and use that cultural connection as a springboard to modernizing the bike scene in Shanghai. Factory Five’s atelier is also making moves to improve the network of bike enthusiasts, as the shop offers a space for individuals who wish to stop by and work up some improvements of their own. The band of five also revels in the cycling camaraderie with weekly night races that, again, show their commitment and true genuity of heart in their mission.
