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.

Beautiful build. This is in the running for my N+1. Is it snappy?
