Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That Noah is one good looking bike.

I keep eyeing the one in a bike shop near me, but this made me want it even more. How is the ride?

It's one of the two best bikes I've owned. Well, three if you count my other Noah. I've got a Scott Addict that I'm pretty fond of for climbing stuff, but for an all around weapon the Ridley's are hard to beat. Corners like it's on rails, can't feel any flex in the sprints, and it climbs really well. Get it above 25 or so and the aero features become noticeable.

Only downside is a bit of "knock" over larger bumps from the internal cables.

I saw that cervelo frame (well not that one exactly, but a white one with the rings) anyway, wow it looks AMAZING! I pretty much just stood there and drooled all over it before i looked and realised that i havnt got a chance of finding that sort of money any time soon, so i dragged myself away does it ride as nicely as it looks?

Thanks james-p!
I upgraded from an 09 S2 to this S3. The bike feels stiffer in the front, and a lot of the road buzz
usually experienced from the rear wheel on rough tarmac feels muted and provides a more comfortable
ride than the S2.

Kind of looks like mike bike, but mine has gears. I like it, but I think I'm biased.

Finally got around to taking a pic of the old girl - unfortunately I'm not a good photographer!

Recently updated most components to Ultegra 6700, but still need to make a few small adjustments (shifter angle, bar angle).

It's also the too bad the Look didn't jive well with you, as it is quite a fantastic frame!



Sure thing! This is what it looks like now, after having done a TT earlier today, er, um...yesterday actually.


Pure porn... Are those Zero Gravity brakes?
