New catalogue looks great. I noticed that you have reconfigured the Zenetik frame. The tube configuration around the seat seems similar to the 700x. I also noticed that the wheelbase is 1" shorter than the 700x. The * looks slightly longer. Am I correct in my observation? Is the Zenetik drop bar capable now?

Also, I have a Dynamik with a set of Nitto dove bars. My feeling after having ridden with them for several thousand miles is the forward curve really opens the * while standing. I have done climbs of over a mile with no problem. Also, you can reach to the forward curve on the bar if you want a more aero position while pedaling. Seems like a good compromise for a bike where drop bars are not an option.

The new Zenetik frame features an offset to the seat stay to seat tube for more rigidity, and larger down and top tubes. The frame weighs in the same due to the use of thin wall tubes. The geometry is the same, from seat to head tube, so drop bars would be not be a good option. The only frame I have found comfy with drop bars is the Alterra Road. The bar I really love on the Dynamik, and Zenetik is the B-37 with a curved forward riser. This combo opens up plenty of space to stand climb, and also extends aft enough to be in easy reach.
