Default Anyone tried a drop bar on a wicked?

My wicked fits me perfect but it's rigid and dirt drops are much better on my hands and arms for absorbing impact.
The bike is on the small side of the fit scale and i am afraid the drops may shorten even more the reach.. i have a nitto drop stem w/ 10cm extension..
any experiences?

Default Drops

I haven't tried drops on a wicked, but I've been working on a dirt drop set setup for my Ibis Hakkalugi. I've read a lot about set ups and there's some very good general info on various sites:

I've liked this one:

Maybe you'll find something helpful there.
