We love the Munsun jacket by PENOFX, that much you know.
What you don’t know is that we loved it so much we’ve been working on a collaborative version for this fall/winter 2014.

Pre-orders will run from now until December 8. The batch will be roasted week of December 8th and posted out week of December 16th. will take “Fifth Hour” coffee orders from now until Sunday, December 8.

US friends do not fear, you can get yours from Grimpeur Bros here!
The Fifth Floor’s “Fifth Hour” blend is a truly unique one of a kind find. It is a four origin coffee, intended as espresso, which really shines when pulled as ristretto. After some experimentation, we found it to be a lovely pour over and press as well. It’s all fruit upfront and finishes off with some nice chocolate notes.
The Fifth Hour could represent the wee hours of the morning when you have to wake up ‘early to shred at dawn light but we chose it to represent the temporal difference that exists between our team in New York and London for the majority of the year. United by a passion for coffee and cycling, Grimpeur Bros. have celebrated that in this special roast.
We’re also offering a really limited combo pack with our tin mug here.
Over at our WebStore.
We had some bad news that the huge character, beard and man behind all the 5th Store orders broke his pelvis and other things in a climbing accident in his native Italy. We’re wishing him all the best and a super speedy recovery.
With that in mind please be patient with any recent orders and let us know if you need anything expedited and we’ll do our best.
We have heard from the manufacturers and the kit order should be dropping at the end of the month and we will post out all pre-orders. Thanks for your patience on that one.
We’ve been stalling on this for no other reason than we’ve been out riding our bikes… but the Sam Dunn collaborative print is now available over on the web-store. 25 only.
High Snobriety have put together a list of their top 10 cycling accessories curated with Brick Lane Bikes. We’re stoked to see they included our 5th Floor x BIGxTOP media pouch, here’s what they had to say…
This media pouch allows the safe and convenient storage of phones or compact cameras. Its tough construction and vinyl interior make the case weatherproof. The best feature is the modular system on the rear that ensures the case is useful on all backpacks and messenger bags alike. All this and it’s hand made in the UK.
The second batch of our Team Kit is now available fore pre-order over on The 5th Store. We’ve made some revisions for this batch moving to Vitesse for production to be able to bring you anti-bacterial fabrics, better air permeability, even better fit with a multi-stretch anti ‘white-stretch’ fabric. Other additions include a zippered centre pocket. The pro fit including PGE sleeve and bib cuffs you’ve come to expect all remain.
This run is strictly limited to 20 pieces of each and we would expect them to be with you in 6 weeks.
For the first time we’ve released a Team Cap with a classic design to compliment the kit or look good on its own. Swoop that here.
Continuing our endeavors to work with local artisans and our love for a good print we’re releasing two new prints to The 5th Store.
In the first we continue our collaborative work with illustrator Sam Dunn who produced our tin mugs. Sam’s style is so unique we literally gave her a blank canvas. Sam attributed us a Stag as our spirit animal and gave a nod to each of our current locations in Glasgow, London and NYC.
Once again we worked with Ant Oram on a 5th colorway of his Velodrome print, reflecting our view as riders he flipped the perspective to show the continuous left that we all face. Signed and numbered.
Both prints will be available exclusively at the Vulpine Fete on the 14th July and if any remain will be offered up on The 5th Store straight after.
As always these were lovingly hand screened by the good people of Whiteduck.
We teamed up with Kustom Caps to bring you 5th Shield laser etched headset caps and anodised bolts for 1 1/8 headsets.
Show your affiliation and clean up the most overlooked part of your ride.
The 5th is all in the details
There is exactly 5 green caps available and once they’re gone thats it.
