We are starting to hear from bike shops everywhere that brake sales are on the rise. As a lover of the fufanu myself, this is great news. Even better news, Odyssey is now offering pre-packaged brake kits! The Springfield and Evo II brake kits are shipping now and are available on the Full Factory Online Store. The Springfield kit features the Odyssey Springfield brake and lever with a linear housing for a whopping retail price of $30!!! The Evo II kit features an Odyssey Monolever in medium, Evo II brake kit and Odyssey Linear K-Shield cable with a retail of $69.99.
Have you had a chance to check out the new Fairdale Goodship? Head over to the Fairdale site and take a closer look. This is one classic steel road frame that will go fast. Everyone at Full Factory is very excited to see this bike grow from prototype to production.
Broc Raiford, Garrett Reeves, Stevie Churchill and Brandon Begin (collectively as OSS) came by Full Factory to ride our obstacles. Hit play and check out what went down. Thanks to Adam22 for bring the crew through.
New Tripod seats from Odyssey are now in stock and shipping everywhere! The Tom Dugan, Chase Hawk and Aaron Ross Tripod seats are brand new for 2014. These are a great add on item to any of the 2014 Sunday completes that come standard with Tripod seat posts.
Chances are if you are visiting this blog in some way, shape or form you enjoy bicycles. It is the conduit that brings us together. No matter where your cycling background started, a casual cruise down Anywhere St. can almost have a medicinal effect on the mind and body. This brings me into our next Fairdale Friday, “Bikes are fun.” Read more about how Fairdale is the perfect fit for any type of bike shop.

2013 has come to an end and what an exciting year it has been. Taking a look back at 2013 gives us a lot of great things to talk about. The coolest, in my opinion, WE FINALLY GOT RAMPS!! The Full Factory Ramps came together like all great things, by great minds. What do you get when the likes of Ryan Corrigan, Jim Bauer and John Povah get together? You get our most liked photo on Instagram, Dennis Enarson (@dennisenarson) downside foot plant x-upping the sub wall. With a paint job that is unmistakeable, the Full Factory Ramps have given us the opportunity to throw local jams, demos and give back to the community.
The start of a new year also means something else. Full Factory turns 4 years old! We want to send an extra shout out to all of our shops who have been here from the start. We couldn’t have done it with out you. Here is to another great year working with everybody!! Happy New Year!
Today we celebrate the first #FairdaleFriday by talking about Fairdales. More specifically, Fairdale frame sets. Coincidence? I think not. The Fairdale frames are expected to arrive the end of January. The same quality frames that come on the complete bikes will now be offered as frame sets. Each frame set will be available in the same color options as the complete bike as well as a limited edition colorway only offered in the frame sets.
Give us a call to pre-order any of the new frame sets from Fairdale.

Here is a throwback to Interbike last September. We did things a bit differently than years past for this Interbike. Instead of staying in some crappy hotel on the strip we rented a house a little bit off the beaten path. One night a few of us decided to head down to Desert Breeze skatepark for a quick little session. All four of us shared three bikes (Gonz’s Soundwave and Bobby’s Model C and Broadcaster). This video is what went down at our session.
If you frequent the Fairdale blog, you have no doubt seen all of the awesome accessories Fairdale has been working on. The Cruiser saddle truly earns its namesake by providing you with a cushy and wide base for comfortable cruises. But if you have the need for speed, the Fairdale Logo saddle might be more up your alley. With a slimmer base this saddle is faster than Monty’s aero helmet. The office favorite has been the new Fairdale headsets. Three different top caps ship out at random to add to the excitement. When has buying a headset been this thrilling?!
Here are some highlight clips from our Toys For Tots jam. Thanks to Ride BMX for coming out.
Thanks to all the riders who came through with toys to donate as well, you helped brighten up the Holidays for others. There will be no coal in your stocking this year.
