After selling my De Rosa King XS, bit of a disappointment - did not like it I needed a bike that met my expectations.

European build, Carbon, Paint must be very well, Bottom Bracket BSA and for Electronic gearing - and of course not to expensive!

At the End I decided for Festka, I already thought about Filament and Basso...

In november I ordered the frame-set at Festka, and went through the process of building the bike, and voila at the end of february it ended up in my hands :-)

I am very happy how every thing went at Festka and also the communication is very close and clear, the frame-set meets my expectations without any doubt!!!

Let it build by my LBS and the result is:

That is awesome!! I've always loved Festka and yours looks great. Brilliant colour choice and the spec is perfect. Dream bike right there, I'm very jealous!

Not responsive, dull drive.

I also own a King RS and this is a sweet drive :beerchug:

First awesome build, Festka is one on my list of frame.
Second - when you said not responsive and dull drive on King -not stiff enough for your riding style ?
I have 2017 King XS waiting to be build and still in the box.

King XS is stiff enough however it is very neutral drive it is not exciting.
