The new agent for Ridley in Australia, FE Sports, has recently acquired ‘Paint My Bike’, a Brisbane based custom bike finishing facility, and although our test bike features a fairly standard black/grey/red paint scheme, there is a wealth of options for potential customers.     Find out what Lachlan McKillop had to say about the Ridley Noah SL, turn to p.170 of #RIDE75. “As tested, this Noah...
