I had never seen the guts of Factory 5‘s Shanghai location and hot damn is it a sexy looking shop. Known worldwide for their frames and accessories the brand has also maintained a strong presence on the streets of China’s largest city. Their current digs look as much a design studio as a place to shop some of the finer brands with a beer in hand. With their brand work being done in house the space not only looks rad as hell but looks more than functional! Grabbed a few photo for after the click and there’s a handful more on the Factory 5 flickr…
Dave Beard just upped an old post that slipped under the rug featuring some cool black and whites from Destroy Bikes warehouse. He snapped some good stuff while at the Redwood City bike builders space. Sean and the dudes down there definitely run a rad shop cranking out everything from fixed freestyle frames to track bikes. More on Dave’s spot!
Spotted some new stuff after popping over to Chari for the first time in a minute. These new ID Daily Wear x Chari shirts are looking dope. I’ve been into pocket tees a lot lately so I dig these for sure. They posted up a little shop tour video in case you haven’t had a chance to hit them up in NYC. It’s been a few years since I popped in but have the say the shop is looking real purdy still. There’s a few more recent drops from them so hit their store to peep the new new.
Oh man do I want this. Not that riding your bike with your board is too difficult but hell…if you don’t have to carry your board then don’t! Blind Chic. is keeping the cool stuff coming with this Lokál Skateshop collabo that lets you strap up your board and carry some goodies to the spot. Really into the board securing system on this bag. Two straps and a flap to make sure your four wheel are moving around while moving on your two wheels. Looks like there’s some protection from your grip on there as well Way sick one girls! This promo is pretty perfect too. Chill little ghetto ark sesh and a brew down at the water. Dig it.
Love BMX stuff like this…techy and creative. Boom. L’industricks bringing some cool stuff from France.
Oh this is a good one! Computer is about to die but check this. Solid riding for Grip Bike Shop.
This reminds me of the old Oak Park Bike Kitchen! You can really score some good vintage stuff at bike co-ops if you dig a little…not to mention how much they help the community get out on some bikes! Krank It Up! is keeping it real inTallahassee Florida if you’re out that way and looking for a place to work on your bike or pick some stuff up on the cheap.
