Ridley Orion Road Bike - Carbon Fiber - Shimano 105 - 54cm - 2013


The name Ridley is normally associated with high end bikes. The Orion rides every bit as well as the more expensive models from the Belgian firm. The Orion feels light and has an excitement factor that comes out to play on the steep gradients.

The Ridley Orion has the ride of Ridley’s costlier machines. A square section down-tube, bearing resemblance to exotic bikes, and a T section top-tube, give the Ridley a distinctive look. Elsewhere, tube profiles change from round at the smaller diameter ends to oval where the tubes increase in size and converge with the bottom bracket. Paint and decals are neatly applied at Ridley’s workshops in Belgium.

The bike is like new. I'm selling it due to an upgrade to an aero bike. It was meticulously maintained. The bike was washed regularly and lubed constantly. It was never crashed. The drivetrain is perfect with no wear. There is a very small nick on the left chainstay that the LBS said is just chipped paint and is totally fine. This machine is ready to go!!!

Price is $1200, OBO. Located in Lakewood. Can ship nationwide for $150.
