Hi Guys
Do the Ridley Noah Fast brakes work?
Would I be sacrificing function over form?

I was nervous about that when I purchased the frame but was pleasently surprised with the braking power and modulation. Granted I haven't done any long mountain descents since I live in a relatively flat part of the US but I would say they have slightly less power than my SRAM Red brakes but better modulation and have much better power than the Zero Gravity brakes I had before that. I used SS Yellow pads with all those brakes including the Noah Fast.
