I've got an opportunity to buy a 2012 Ridley Noah frame and would like some opinions from you guys.

First off, I believe the frame is BB30 compatible, if so, would I be able to fit my Hollowgram crankset to it?

What's handling like, any changes I can make ie. different fork, stem length (longer/shorter) or any other suggestions.

Is it possible to get a different saddle mount for the seatpost to raise the saddle?

Any help would be appreciated

I had a test ride; it hovers over the bumps, and climbs v. well; if your light enough, go for it.

I rode a Noah recently. It depends on your purpose. Its a no-nonesense go-fast race bike. It's among the stiffest frames I've ridden. But I didn't like the way it handled rough roads (we have a lot of them here) and it just didn't have the road feel or all-day comfort that I'm looking for.

^ this sounds more like what I expect. Very stiff race bike, but stiff in every direction, including vertical

Strange! I'm a big fat tubsie and it rode like a magic carpet;tubsie-ness precludes a buy however.

Without doubt the Noah is the stiffest bike i've had, If you're looking for something for century rides, sportives, club rides etc, look elsewhere this is a flat out race bike.

I ride a Noah that is an 08' model. Best fitting bike that I've ever owned. It handles well and is very stiff.
