This feature offers the opportunity to learn more about exhibitors’ individual style and inspirations, as well as giving an insight into their behind the scenes preparation for Bespoked 2014.

Every week we will ask a couple of different framebuilders the same five questions and along with photos of them, their workshops and the bikes they make display them on these pages.


Ondrej & Michael - founders of Festka with their Rapha frame

1. What defines your style as a frame builder?

In general we invest a lot of time into development of new technologies. We believe in progress, use of advanced technologies and teamwork. Our team includes a designer, construction manager and a also a math genius who calculates our models.

2. Who, or what has inspired you?

We are inspired by life. The thing we see around us and our clients.

3. Are you preparing anything special for Bespoked 2014?

We are. For more than a year now, we have been working on a titan frame. Paying attention to every tiny detail and its function. We've calculated the shape of the tubes using mathematical formulas, constructed our own stunning drop outs etc. I believe it will be a 'piece not to miss'.

4. Where is your favourite place to ride?

I enjoy rides with a familiar view as well as discovering new places. My all time favorites are the climbs in Sumava in southern Bohemia and Mallorca.

5.If you weren’t a framebuilder what would you be?

I'd do my best to become one.

Each frame comes with a birth certificate that was personally signed by the whole Festka family who participated on its production. We don’t have a factory in China but a number of workshops all over the Czech republic. Each and every part of our frames comes from local production. We believe in craftsmanship, in experience of masters, in individual approach and we constantly strive to come up with innovative approach to work with traditional and new age materials.
