You don’t normally associate porcelain with a bike. But Festka, at their Czech workshop, has managed to create a bike with an intricate painting, on a body made of porcelain. It also has 24-karat gold leaves on it.
You may think that a porcelain bike would be delicate and not at all tough. But the Spectre Porcelain is a race-ready carbon road bike with an enviable build kit. It has rim brakes for a classic lightweight setup, but disc brakes are also an option. The bike features a painted to match full carbon Columbus Futura tapered fork with a 44mm headtube, plus 130mm rear spacing & QR drops, a pressfit BB86 bottom bracket, 31.6mm seatpost, and clearance for 28mm tires.
The owner of this bike is Suratchaj Chenyavanij, a collector and bike enthusiast based in Bangkok. The Festka art director said, “When the client told me what he wanted, I knew immediately who to invite to participate. I love the work of Michal Bačák, especially his ability to work in the minutest detail. The design works two ways – the frame looks wonderful from afar but it’s when you take a closer look that the stories start to appear…” So that is how beautiful bike came into being.
