Festka bikes out of the Czech Republic was one of the most flashy and hypnotizing booth at North American Handmade Bike Show this year in Denver. A lot of people stopped to admire and photograph the MOTOL. The MOTOL is an extremely limited production bike, with only five units being produced. The whole frame is painted in chrome and sits on of the very light Rocket Wheels disk wheels. The bike may look fragile, but works perfectly for normal usage. The bike is outfitted with 3T LTD components and White Industries.
Festka Bicycles is a grouping of people concentrating on hand made bicycles production. Every member of Festka Bicycles group is a professional that concentrates on his field during the production process – frame builder builds the frames, graphic designer designs the look of the frames, and test rider rides the bikes. Every client is informed about the whole process beforehand. They carefully discuss rider’s habits and interests in order to choose the most convenient bicycle type, geometry, material, design, finish, including the final tackling of riding position at the end of the process. They often even define entanglement of carbon fibers according to the needs of the rider.
We also looked at the Festka Pink Zero Carbon road bike that they brought to NAHBS.
