It's a lot of money to come up with our ideal drop bar design...
Nitto has a great reputation for producing racks and bars to customer's specs. I don't know what the minimums are.

Bar tubing diameter for all road drop bars I know of are 23.8mm regardless of clamp diameter. For the clamp area shims work just fine. Double wrapping tape could help with the grip.

I had trouble reaching Matt via email when I had some questions. Crust's home base bike shop is Belmar Bike Shop in Belmar, NJ. I called and asked if someone could answer some questions about a Crust frame and they handed the phone to Matt. I follow them on IG and I think he may be back in Oz right now. They have a good track record of delivering product when they say you can expect them, so I'll bet the April estimate turns out to be accurate.

Ok just FYI there is now a 36er Road DirtySixer bike available to pre-order and a 32er Gravel Road bike.
The 36er is definitely for riders over 6'8" the 32er being for rider under 6'8".
The 36er get light AlexRims with smooth road tires and 48 cm c-to-c drop bars from Kuosac (unless I can make wider ones) and hydro brakes, 1x11 wide range or Rohloff XL. The 32er share almost the same philosophy except wider rims (42mm) with cross tires (2.25"), same bars, brakes, drivetrain options.
Oh and 36 spokes and longer cranks on both.
Tell your tall friends! Thanks

Reminds me of Bill Walton's Holland Exogrid.
