If you’re going to build an ark, you’d better build it right

We’ve been meaning to get this done for a while now (we’ve been busy!), but we finally got the right bits together and found the time to build this Daccordi Noah with the parts it is worthy of.

The Noah is one of Daccordi’s top road frames. Everything Daccordi makes is essentially “race-ready”, but the Noah takes it to another level with more advanced materials, with a hand-wrapped frame of the highest performance but also one with an exceptionally refined ride quality.

Though it’s a break from tradition, we decided to match this Italian beauty with a groupset that, arguably, has no peer at the moment. Shimano’s brand new Dura Ace 9100 is so refined in both performance and increasingly with Shimano’s product, aesthetics, that it was a no-brainer.

We went back to Italy with a finishing kit from Deda, using their top-of-the-line Superzero bars, stem, and seatpost. Enve is the flavour of the month for most people these days, but we think the shape of the Superzero aero road bars are even more comfortable, super sexy, and lighter as well, and the same goes for the stem and seatpost, which has a comfy and light-weight Selle San Marco saddle attached to it.

For the wheels, anything reasonably light and stiff would suit this bike, but in this example is a pair of Mavic 40C carbon wheels, as used by the pro’s at the World Tour level.

We’re pretty happy with how this has turned out. It’s a bike that is just as happy winning races as it is on social rides and looking good while doing both. With this Noah, you’ll be aboard an ark that will happily take you into a new world of cycling enjoyment.
