Beijing Fixed Gear Open 6 : Custom Frame

For those in the know, the Beijing Fixed Gear Open 6 event is happening this month on Saturday the 23rd. It’s a big one day bonanza with a small alleycat race, gold sprints, trick competition, criterium and of course a party. As one of the main sponsors we took inspiration from the event poster and made a custom F550s frameset to be awarded to the winner of the sprint race. The result is stunning.

No Ride…. for now

We’re sad to say that tonight we don’t ride. After all these years of superlative rolls, we’ve reached to the scale where we don’t quite fit in Shanghai any more, even for a couple hours late on a Tuesday night. That’s not to say the night ride is gone, but we’re taking a few moments during the zenith-period to figure out a way to make everybody happy.

Thank-you for joining us so far on what has been an incredible journey of incredible journeys. We’ve covered almost every street of this city together and made some amazing friends (you!) along the way.

The night ride spirit will be kindled in all of us until we can re-ignite it in the physical realm. Until then, don’t be a stranger. Come to all of our other events and keep up the happy rolls.
