Hello to all ,

I have been riding my 2011 RIDLEY HELIUM now since around Jan , I found it very good in handling and ascending , the biggest problem is after riding a Noah isp I find it rides like licorice . It is very flexi in the seat stays and bottom bracket and in the ISP, this is more noticeable locked into the indoor trainer.

So I was suggested to have a serious look at a 2012 Kuota Kom Evo , I got onto the LBS and they have 1 only left and is a limited edition Rrp $3999 Frame only , but being a run out I can get it for $1800.
Those in the know , will the KOM be stronger in the bottom bracket? Will it be a stiffer bike than the Helium?

The Ridley is absolutely untouched and stunning in finish , so if the KOM works out I will get a frame swap done and sell the Helium off. Is there anything to watch out for with the KOM?
The LBS owner has ridden one for 2 years and loves it can't rave enough about it , he is my size and weight, but after all he is a salesman first !

Thanks in advance for your input
