We are pleased to announce The Bike Rack now carries Ridley road bikes. In their early years, Ridley built the reputation as a company specializing in bikes “tested on the pavé” — and this Made-in-Belgium heritage was something appealing to anyone sensitive to the rich bike culture of Flanders. In the years since, they’ve graduated to the top echelon of race bike manufacturers. They are leaders in every conceivable way: They build light-but-bombproof frames; they build ultra-aero road frames and time trial frames; and they are the undisputed leader of cyclocross frames. Their bikes — no matter the discipline — deliver a ride quality, a durability, and a beauty befitting their emerging position as Europe’s most dynamic manufacturer of pro-caliber bicycles.
The Ridley Orion is an exercise in pleasant surprises. Firstly, the price. It’s a full-carbon fiber frame that borrows technical pedigree and geometry from Ridley’s pro-level bikes, and is fitted with a race-ready gruppo for around $2400. Secondly, the Orion offers a phenomenally versatile platform on which you can competitively train, ride recreationally, and race, while still allowing room to grow and upgrade as you progress through your local ranks. It’s Ridley’s full-fledged value option, and worth more than a second glance if you’re looking to get the most from your money.
Due to the unique design, the Ridley Fenix is a multi purpose frame that can be used for recreational and competitive riding. The oversized sharp edge tubing guarantees a high level of stiffness and is extremely strong in all areas. The specially developed flex areas in the seat stays absorb vibrations from the road to give the rider the right amount of comfort. This is a true all-rounder!
