I had to take issue with Sogoods description of it as a noodle.
To have won Oregon state tt titles, it's clearly not.
It has thin profile tubes presumably to be aero, which it must achieve without being too flexy
What you say is only true if you equate stiff with fast.
Some claim that a stiff frame is faster than a whippy one.
Some claim that a whippy frame is faster than a stiff one.
Some claim that it makes no difference at all.
If the rider of this bike has the engine to win state titles, and this bike helps him get the aerodynamics to get the most out of his power (and the ergonomics to get the power out in the first place), then I see no reason why the lack of stiffness should stop him from winning state titles.
But that sure isn't going to be a stiff frame with such skinny tubes.
