Zenta of Isyar / Qaumen Bikes decided to follow one of Souplesses featured rider Katrina Medina. She got a fresh frame, bars, stem and headset cap. The frame is their final version of their commuter frame called Ardour. Very tight geometry and very ridged strong construction. A freestyle track frame is in the works at the moment. News of the new freestyle frame will be found at Isyar / Qaumen and Souplesses.
