Well that's interesting.
I will add:
Noah pro is stiffer than noah fast - I was referring to the pro in case that needed to be cleared up.
I don't know what wattage I pull but at the end of my bunch ride I hit 64-69 km/hr depending on day / wind and I'm 75kgs. With the 24 spoke 2014 fc and gp4000s I'm yet to experience rubbing but I haven't put tape there or anything to test for sure / that can be my next step.

Just an FYI, I too own a Noah Pro and used to own the standard Noah. Both bikes experienced the same issues. Additionally, according to some email exchanges with Ridley back when I was looking for a wheel set that would work with the frame the guys at Ridley said that the Noah, Noah Pro and Noah Fast were all similar in frame stiffness. The new Noah SL is supposedly more compliant but I haven't seen any data supporting this.
Trust me when I say I was really frustrated when the wheel rub occurred because it literally rubbed the paint down to the carbon. Additionally, when I started my search for a replacement frame (thinking maybe the frame was too flexy) I realized that it was one of the stiffest frames on the market. I believe Ridley made the wheel tolerances too tight for practical use without it incurring some collateral damage to the paint. Thinking I was some kind of beast on the bike I have noticed this same issue on two other Ridleys and both riders are noticeably smaller than I am (one was a female sprinter but maybe 100 lbs soaking wet!!!).
Now whenever I visit the bike shops I find myself looking at the chain stay/seat stay tolerances in anticipation of my next bike purchase. Because my other bike (Colnago CLX 3.0) is not as stiff but I have no tire rub on that bike.
