Ridley's been on the forefront of aero road frames, having a slippery Noah aero frameset in its arsenal for over a dozen years. A favorite among the sprinters of Ridley sponsored teams, Noah frames helped Robbie McEwen pull on the green jersey at the Tour as well as later versions piloting Andre Greipel to numerous race wins. The frames became very popular as it not only helped the fast men achieve faster terminal velocity in the sprints, it allowed them to conserve energy by reducing their power expenditure over the course of a 3-week stage race, extremely important for a thicker, more muscular rider to go into the last week relatively fresh. The industry took notice for sure and now every brand has an aero frameset in its arsenal. The Noah has received updates along the way too as Ridley engineers gained insight while developing new aerodynamic structures learned from in-house computer aided design, finite element analysis, and wind tunnel testing, along with real-world feedback from its sponsored pros on Team Lotto Soudal. This latest version of Ridley's fastest road machine, the Noah Fast Road Frameset, brings a host of details boosting stiffness, comfort, and aerodynamics while losing some grams in the process. The new Noah Fast is a stunning machine indeed. Every line, shape, curve, and detail is designed with aerodynamics in mind. While we're used to seeing Ridley's dedication to aero details in the past stem from integrated seat masts, cutouts at the fork blades and seatstays to reduce turbulence, and hidden, integrated brakes, this new design eschews such features as the engineers have learned how to build a faster Noah thanks to the firm investing in a state of the art wind tunnel (along with a couple of other Belgian brands in a collaborative effort dubbed "Flanders Bike Valley") and the time spent there. What we do notice immediately with this updated version is an ultra-slick seat post clamp, and an all-new fork, designed to work with the intergrade...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
