Never seen any Fetska without paint but this looks very nice and nice colour.

Nice to see another Scalatore! Can't wait to see it built up!

Love me a naked carbon frame! Fe$tka's are killer. Maybe one day.

Issues with online retailers and a busy January have led to some delays with this, but it should be finished this week.

I’ll post the parts list, soon. For those who’re interested, the frame with headset pressed, seatpost collar fitted and bottle cage bolts was 935g (size 54cm ‘sport’ - this was how it arrived from Festka).

In the meantime, some shots of it being built up.

Can't get over how nice the exposed carbon looks.

Cycling is cheap. Looking at builds on WW is not.

Finally got to pick up and ride home the Scalatore tonight. Proper shakedown ride to follow, but it felt responsive, rapid and planted on the 22km ride home (including an 18% slope leading up to my apartment).

That’s very nice. Clean, nice lines, perfectly proportioned, subtle graphics. And given that your rear brake is tied to the left shifter, the right side entry port on the top tube for the rear brake cable run is a good choice. Shows you were thinking about function as well as the aesthetics of the cable runs once built up. Seems that’s an afterthought sometimes, even on the big brands.
