"We met Russell at NAHBS and it was clear after a few moments that we speak the same language, embracing the same philosophy of bike and frame manufacturing, as well as of life on two wheels in general.  Our newly presented models aroused high interest in the Unites States, which is why we expect this new partnership will create an interesting community around our bicycles," says Ondrej Novotny, one of the two founders and partners of Festka Bicycles.  Festka is a progressive, young Czech brand which designs and hand manufactures unique custom bicycles and accessories.  We are a group of people of varying professions, manufacturing bicycle frames, combining precise handcrafting with advanced technology and art.  Festka frames are tailored to maximally enhance the riding experience of each customer.  Every bicycle is completely original.  Using carbon and steel, Festka builds bicycles that are strong, lightweight and reliable.
