    Ridley Helium/SRAM Force good deal?

    Saw this today from Competitive Cyclist:

    Ridley Helium ISP/SRAM Force 22

    I don't know anything about Ridley, but this appears (to my untrained eye) to be a pretty good deal, based on the Force 22 groupo. I have a coupla friends and a son who're looking to get into (or back into) road cycling. Would this be a good bike to recommend at that price point?

    Looks nice, great components, but I don't know much about Ridley or their carbon. Awesome color scheme.

    I've never ridden a Helium but I love my Excalibur. It's light, stiff, and well balanced. Just a really great race bike. Looks like a great deal, especially since you're getting a new 11spd group.

    If they had that in my size, I'd have bought it already.

    Integrated Seat Post. That is why I passed on this bike.

    The fenix also looks like a nice bike for the money.
