Just noticed that the new Zenetik has a new frame geometry something like the recently discontinued Alterra Road. As a happy Z owner I would be interested in the rethinking of the design -- speed, power, or whatever?

The new Zenetik frame offers better climb response due to larger but thinner walled down and top tube. The bike has a great feel, you can reall get on it and it takes the power and goes. The same weight frame but greater stiffness makes it one fun ride, and it still has the smooth over the road the Z is famous for.

Thanks Randy!

I also recently noticed that Angletech is offering a drop bar custom version of the Zenetik 2.0. Given that I've read that drop bars hadn't worked well on the earlier Z, can I assume that the frame's top tube length been shorted enough to make that now possible?

It's too bad we can't just turn in/trade up our older bikes for newer upgraded models such as the auto industry does or did. ;)

You can, just go to your dealer, and talk trade in, or bring your bike to the factory. We can always find a customer for used bikes in great shape.
