Upgrading to a new race machine isn't an easy process. If you could spend the amount of money your current car is worth, it wouldn't be difficult, but a cycling habit burns a lot of calories, and you've got to eat. An increase in appetite isn't the only cost consequence of your habit either; with road racing comes plenty of other costs, so being able to invest in a frame with good bones that has the potential to grow with you is a valuable thing. Make Ridley's 2016 Noah Force 22 Complete Road Bike your racing partner and enjoy the aerodynamic design and carbon construction its pricier Noah SL sibling boasts, on a solid, dependable build sans flashy extras.
Though the carbon layup Ridley uses for the Noah is slightly heavier than the one it chooses for the Noah SL, it's just as strong, adding a few grams to the Noah frame compared to its sibling but still delivering the vibration-dampening effects and overall lightness of carbon. Ridley pairs its teardrop-shaped tubing aggressive race geometry on the Noah to effectively slice through the wind on straightaways and breezy summits, helping you expend less effort to maintain speed. Ridley rounds out the build with SRAM's responsive Force 22 drivetrain, a workhorse groupset prepared to offer consistent shifts when timing is crucial, along with Mavic's steadfast Aksium Elite alloy training hoops wrapped in versatile 25mm Mavic Yksion tires.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have put 800 miles on the bike and can confidently say it is an awesome machine. I race on the track and needed a road bike that could handle all of our crazy intervals. The front end is stiff and instills confidence in the corners. Force 22 is great. The BB can handle anything you put into it. I upgraded to a 170 mm crank and the Power Tap Wheelset. Neal was a great help arranging the details and making sure I was confident in my purchase. CC installed the new crank, tires, etc. All I needed to do was put on my saddle, pedals, computer and ride. Excellent customer service.
Adding a size chart, if you have any questions of fit feel free to contact me. Ridley does run a little big.
Excellent budget racer

Light, stiff, fast, wicked price. I'm not sure what else you need. I've been out 2 or 3 times on this bike with this build and I'm very impressed. The Sram Force 22 is crisp and the brakes are powerful. The frame is slippery with some very thoughtful aero tech. The bike really comes alive at high speeds and mashing on the pedals is rewarded instantly. If you're looking for high performance at a reasonable price, this is your bike.

I had picked up a Noah frame as a crit bike but really found it to be a great bike in general. I has ridden a helium for a couple years as a light climber is more my style but was pleasantly surprised and how well an all around bike the Noah is. feel free to contact me for more detailed questions on the Noah firstname.lastname@example.org
You mentioned it can take up to 25c tires but what about on wide wheels were the actual measurement of the 25c tire is close to 29 mm?
I'm a 5' 7" male. My actual bike is a Cannondale Cadd8 50cm.
I dont know what to choose... XS or S. Any suggestions are welcome.
hey Gil, I am 5'7" and ride the XS. The Ridley's run big so I really felt stretched on a S. any questions on them feel free to email me email@example.com
I'm 5'8" and have a 2014 Noah. I use a Small now which fits me better. I had a medium but crashed that and cracked the frame. Noticed the Small suits me better.
Reviewing ridley website, they reccomend a S size for a rider of my height (173 cm). However on you sizing chart it seems that a M size frame will do the trick. I'm kind of confuse. Is it possible to give you a call before placing the order?
Hi Luis, yes call me at 801-736-6396 ext. 4417 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. We are close in size.
Its possible to change the force 22 for Shimano ultegra? And if I order the 2 day shipping ¡what is the cost for this service? Thx
hey Miguel, these are a complete kit bike from Ridley so we wouldn't be able to change out the full groupset. We have some Noah frames that we can build up custom but they are SL so would be more money. contact me here directly and let me see if I can help you out.
Is it possible to have shipped with an 11-28 cassette and 50/34 crank? Does the price change?
Santiago, we would have to sell you an additional cassette and crank in order to do this; as we cannot take product off of a complete bike as trade-in, you would receive the stock crank and cassette as well. We would of course install the alternative crank and cassette as per your request.
Please let me know if you would like to put a proposal together and I can get something going for you!

Any chance this frame will fit 28mm tire? Thanks in advance.
Hi Pawel! This bike can fit up to a 25c tire.
2 question: Do you know what the weight is for XS and how it compares to the Helium? Is it possible to have shipped with an 11-28 cassette?
Hi David! We do not have the weight of these bikes. The Helium will be a bit lighter weight, and we can certainly have this shipped with an 11-28 cassette installed. I'd be glad to discuss the details.
What is the to stalk weight on the Ridley Noah force 22 large
Has Ridley done anything to widen the chainstays to help eliminate tire rub?
Reason I ask is I've read about several people having tires cut through paint down to the carbon when trying to use 25c tires or upgraded wider profile wheels.
Anthony we've be doing 25 tires on these without an issue, email me at email@example.com and I can help you further.
What do you guys have to say on this bike for climbing ?
Im trying to decide between this Noah and the Storck Scenero G3 you have on sale too.
Hi Giuliano! The Noah and Scenero are almost identical in weight with these builds but IMO the Noah is a bit stiffer, which translates to more power to the ground. Give me a shout directly and we can go over the details. 801-204-4557 firstname.lastname@example.org
You have xxs saiz for ridley noah force22
Hi! We do not have the XXS in stock. But give me a shout and we can look into what it would take to get one.
