New Bike Dilemma

Currently, I have the new '21 Orbea Orca M30 (OMR) on order. It has a full 105 drivetrain and the base level carbon frame for $2400 US. The problem is, it isn't expected to ship until next Spring.

I recently discovered Ribble bikes. I know they've been around for a while but you just don't see much about them in the States (at least I haven't). They let you customize your bikes aesthetics for only $326. With the same 105 drivetrain and the additional upgrades of a D shaped carbon seat post, an integrated carbon aero cockpit and custom paint the Endurance SL model is only $350 more. The main demerit points are a 3 year warranty over lifetime on the Orbea. I work on my own stuff, so not having factory shop support isn't a big deal to me and the Ribble has a threaded BB.

It seems I'd get my hands on it before the end of the calendar year as well. Should I roll the dice on the Ribble or keep the Orbea order and just wait it out?
