    The guys over at Factory Five are known for not only bringing you some killer track and fixed gear bikes in Shanghai but also for developing their own line high-quality components; their world-renowned Lattice Chainring or the innovative F5 Titan 31.8 Quill Stem are perfect examples.

    So what’s the latest from Factory Five? Hubs and wheels of course, and they look damn good to boot.

    The F5 Pista Hubs are forged from 7075 aluminum, CNC finished and fitted with sealed-cartridge bearings sitting on chromoly axles. The Sherrif Staresque cutout flange is designed to distribute stress while keeping the overall weight down to just 490 grams for the set (including bolts).

    These hubs are available in 20h for the front and 24h for the rear with a flange diameter of 80mm and a BCD of 70.5. They’re up for sale no in black, silver and for a limited time, monster purple. Also, be sure to check out the F5 Pista Wheelset.

  • Limited Phil Wood Track Hubs for Tsunami Relief

    A lot has been going on since we’ve been ‘away’ but nothing near as tragic or devastating as what’s happened in Japan. Catching back up with things it’s amazing to see so many people eager to help in any way they can, even Phil Wood Co.

    Starting some time this evening, these limited hubs will be made available for purchase with proceeds going directly to Tsunami Relief in Japan. Go HERE for details and purchase yourself a pair.
