    I just want to know how these festka gravel bikes ride.
    there was an older review that said they are not proper gravel bikes, but that review said they only cleared 33mm tires, making it seem more of a cross bike than gravel. At the end the reviewer says get the Open, its lighter, more versatile, and better suited to gravel. I know the new Rovers claim to clear 40mm tires on 420 chain stays. But the geo numbers im seeing still make the geo look like their one road frame, slightly slacker head tube.. crazy.
    im just wondering how they ride? is one better off on an Open or do these have something different than the current offerings of carbon gravel bikes?

    I got one, its lovely. Chameleon with rosegold. weighs roughly negative 3 grams. some jerks sent my parts to the west hills instead of oregon, so im waiting for parts still.
    right now its not a bike, just a pretty face. dont even have the fork unwrapped yet.

    this is nice. I saw their first try and it was lacking. Sound like they have a very nice gravel bike now.

    This bike is pretty damn amazing. Its like my Goodrich with tighter steering. its a lovely bike to ride, maybe the best one ive put a leg over yet. but of course it just may be the honeymoon thing.

    Nice bike. I find myself looking at the scenery around it. I'm looking forward to this summer's return to Central Oregon.

    Festka were supposed to paint a color matched superleggera stem for me. Due to a random change on the final invoice, i somehow ended up with a painted deda 35 stem which doesnt really work for me (who has 35mm bars?). Hoping to get that remedied so I can put a lovely color matched stem on this thing. then it will be as intended!

    These guys, Lionel... Jerk is a big proponent. Oh, and obviously some Festka folks:) Or is your question where to source them?
