I can't think of a superlative that hasn't already been offered - simply a beautiful bike.

I don't think I've seen anything more beautiful on WW...

The two triangles, joined together in that diamond shape with the common joining points at the seat cluster and the Bottom Bracket and sharing the seat tube is a really tough structure to improve upon, from both functional and aesthetic standpoints. It’s stood the test of time and will continue to do so.
Colnago C64 - The Naked Build; Colnago C60 - PR99; Trek Koppenberg - Where Emonda and Domane Meet;
Unlinked Builds (searchable): Colnago C59 - 5 Years Later; Trek Emonda SL Campagnolo SR; Special Colnago EPQ

Thanks for the positive feedback, all.

This build took quite a long time to realise. From which frameset to go with from which company, to the component choice, to how the build would come together (aesthetically and functionally).

If there’s interest in a full build list, I can put that together.

Once it stops snowing in Japan, I can test it properly in the mountains...

A pair of Venn rim wheels will match your tube's carbon weave perfectly, but nice and neat as it is!

Nice to see a carbon bike that does not have squared off tubes :wink:

This one shows some passion :thumbup:

Snow meant I could only get in a short shakedown this weekend, but great ride on a loop with short, steep climbs and some longer climbs (37km, 605m elevation gain). Very impressed with the frameset.

Lovely bike. Which Veloflex tires are those exactly?

Christmas Day and what should arrive...my new project, a new Festka Scalatore.

I’ve been looking for a return to a lighter weight bike as an alternative to my Field and the Scalatore fitted the bill perfectly.

More details to come, but here’s some photos to start.

That raw carbon combined with the menthol decals is just amazing - and gumwalls is the only way to go on this bike. Best looking Festka I've seen!
