Congratulations,

The bike is now ready, and the full story with images is at https://festka.com/journal/antti-by-festka

Very happy with how everything turned out to be!

The Ekar groupset functions perfectly. Shifting is precise and braking excellent. The Shamal wheels are just as good as you would expect Campagnolo carbon wheels to be. Michelin Power Gravel tires roll well and have a similar comfortable ride feel like old Mud/Jet cyclocross tyres.

My biggest concern beforehand were the Schmolke parts, but no problems this far. I was amazed by the comfort level the TLO setpost offers together with the Berk saddle. The seatpost flexes like the D-fuse post on my Giant Revolt Advanced. I can really recommend this seatpost if you want comfort for gravel riding.

Weight is now 8.12 kg as in the pics. Some already planned upgrades like Carbon-ti axles and Schmolke expander and top cap will bring it down a bit...

Still think you should have got it in the 6r4 colours. 😉

^ That car was so unreliable, that I would not want to see the colors on my bike

Unreliable? They're still being raced now...

The whole is bothing short of amazing, but I'm blown away by the attention to detail. Good sense of humour!
