Great looking bike. So much so that it could be a contender for my next ride. Love it

No problems riding these wide rims in the Fast forks? Ridley claims that 23mm is the widest rims to be used.

This is really nice. I am not too thrilled though on the battery under the saddle.

So it's now 7.20 kg including pedals, cages, garmin mount, etc. Managed to loose about 200g switching the shifters and derailleurs from 6070 to 9070. Still running it as 10 spd for now, concerned about the rotor rings working with the 11 spd. If I put my Reynolds KOMs on it, it's down to 6.76 kg.

@Mario Jr.
No issues with the rims. The ENVEs are 26 front and 23 rear respectively. I think the HED C2 28 would be to tight though.

I've ran Rotor rings with 10/11 with almost no problems. Depending on your chainline, you could get some chain drop in big/big, but I solved this by biasing my cage inwards slightly and using the cage rotation screw (9000) to get it perfect.

Yea, the issue I have is with the 11 spd chain. Still trying to get the front shifting right. Trying to find the balance to where it won't overshift when going to the big ring up front and also keep the outer side from rubbing when it auto trims while I move towards big/big. The crazy thing is I don't have the problem with the 10 spd chain. It won't overshift up front when it's set up not to rub through the whole range.

How was the clearance w/ the Enve (both 6/7 and 8/9), I've heard clearances are quite small on Noah's? Not sure about the Fast...

The frame has no issues with the rim clearance on the ENVE wheels. I've never had any rub and have been using them for over a year. I don't know that I would go much wider than the ENVE's. I think if you put the HED with the 28mm width rims, it would be so close that any deflection in the wheel might cause rub. I've also run 25c tires on it without any problems but couldn't go any bigger then that (not sure why anyone would on this frame).

The only limiting factor of the FAST is the brakes are meant for traditional width rims. Since they are frame integrated, you can't upgrade to wider rim friendly brakes. I solved this by shaving some ENVE pads to provide the necessary clearance. No problems with this set up over the last year.

Cool, thanks a ton for the input. Mine is not a 'fast' one but the 2013 one, but I think it'll turn out similar. I think the Enve's are like 24mm wide at the back, Firecrests 26mm, and Stingers 28mm...

Your Ridley is pure bikeporn. I'm in love with it!

The only thing i could put a finger on, is that you need a SRM instead of the Quarq. It would truly do this mega pro-looking bike justice!
