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…
They come only in 144BCD with 47/48/49 tooth options.
It’s also available with a crankset for $131. Slate and Silver rings get a silver crankset, Black gets black. Arm length is 170mm.
