"Cycleast is proud to be the US distributor of Festka because we see in them the same fire and passion we have for bicycles and the people who ride them.  We are excited to create more stories, with more riders and continue to discover the romance of the bicycle, the spirit of the mountain and the speed of the descent while collaborating with Festka," comments Russell Pickavance, co-founder and co-owner of Cycleast.  Cycleast was founded on the principles of collaboration, forged in the city streets on two wheels and polished on the open roads of Texas.  They believe in the bicycle.  As transpiration, recreation and sport. Cycleast is a full service shop specializing in restorations and custom bicycles.  They provide a full compliment of fitting services and are experts at taking old bikes and giving them new life, helping costumers discover exactly what they want out of a custom bike and who the right builder is to manufacture it.

"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.
