    Ridley Fenix vs. Ridley Noah

    Ok folks, looking for a cheap(er) alternative to my Look to race on.

    I've ridden the Fenix and I do like it. Fast, stiff, razor sharp response. Perfect for racing around here. The problem is I can't find one. They seem sold out all over and they don't come up pre-owned very often.

    How does the Noah compare? Anyone ridden both? Much more of those available on the used market, and generally cheaper as well.

    If you mean the NOAH with ISP you should be careful, the rear tire clearance is very little, its made to fit a 23 perfectly. The Fenix can go possibly up to 28mm tires, thats what my excalibur can take. My damocles had a similar issue depending on the brand it could sometimes take a 25, gatorskin/4 season 25s were a no.

    Good info to note. I'm looking at any of the Noahs, depending on what I can find. I don't anticipate running anything too large anyway (as a race bike, it'll be relegated to race duty. I've got my 585 with bigger clearance for rougher stuff.)
