In a world where saving watts matters and expensive technology buys "free" speed, self-sponsored riders can breathe a sigh of relief with the Noah Limited Edition Frameset. Boasting similar aerodynamic tube shapes of its costlier counterpart, the Noah Fast, the Noah features a slightly different carbon layup that adds just a touch of extra weight while cutting the price tag drastically to give those of us with allocated funds in our bank accounts a chance to keep up with the more opulent competition. And with this limited edition colorway, you'll have the luxury of owning and riding a unique frame.This Noah's oversized tubes are constructed from a mix of 30-ton and 24-ton high modulus carbon fiber, in contrast to the Fast's mix of 60, 40, and 30-ton fibers. The inclusion of lower-ton fibers means that the Noah requires a bit more material to obtain similar levels of stiffness and strength, and accounts for a claimed 110-gram difference between a size small Noah and Noah Fast. However, that small weight gain comes with a drastic reduction in cost. As with all the Noah models, the Noah's different carbon moduli are used in different areas of the frame based on desired properties of stiffness, weight, durability, and road-noise damping.The Noah also features a tapered head tube for sharp tracking and efficient power transfer, as well as a PF30 bottom bracket, internal cable routing, and electronic group compatibility. The frame also receives its In-Mould F-Surface Tech which is revolutionary in its ability to cause incoming air to stay attached to the frame for longer, reducing turbulence and drag, letting you go faster with less effort.Please note that Ridley recommends a maximum rider weight of 220 lbs (110kg) for the Noah.

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.
