ridley orion

I have the chance to get a 2013 ridley orion special edition from my lbs at a pretty decent price, does anyone own one or have any knowledge about them please?

I have a 2010 Orion. The frame hasn't changed since then. Awesome bike if you're going from aluminum to carbon. Good reviews at the time but outdated now. Although Wiggle now sells them for cheaper but rebranded as their house brand: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/verenti-insight-105-2013-ex-demo/

The 2010 Orion frame featured a 'T' shaped top tube, the newer frame shape is different. You don't say what groupset it comes with, I bought just the frameset & fitted an Ultegra groupset & Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels + some 4ZA components. This is my second Ridley, the first being an Icarus (Aluminium), the Orion is a strong frame & always encourages me to go quicker!

Good luck, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
