Found: Chiseled Factory Five Lattice Singlespeed Chainring

Factory Five F5 Lattice singlespeed chainring

Since 2010, Factory Five has been making fixed gear frames and custom bike builds as “Shanghai’s first fixed boutique”.

Now, they’ve delved into components, and their first piece is this beautifully sculpted Lattice chainring. The framework is created with dual plane CNC milling of a solid piece of 7075 aluminum, allowing it to be both stiff and light. Claimed weight is around 78g. They’re then radially brushed and anodized in either black, slate or silver. Retail is $90. More pics and info below…

That’ll be as fun to clean as BBS wheels, but that machining is gorgeous!

Looks great, quite possibly worth the cleaning nightmare.

Gorgeous. Looks like some deco piece out of a museum- that would look awesome on a nice steel track frame. Ya know, without the Aerospokes.

It has a great Sweet Wings feel to it.
