if you have the option to test ride both see about doing that and find out which one is best for you.
I wish I could but there are no Orbea's, regardless of the level, to test. I was able to test a F4 and loved it.
I really like my FC. Couldn't justify the double in price to the F1. FRD should see a significant price increase to the current F1
I doubt the FRD will be that much more than the FC, just look at the price scale for the niners, $1500 for the UHC advanced and $2800 for the FRD.
Thanks all for your comments. You have confirmed the direction I was leaning. The F series look great with the matte black and accents, slap the FDR on there and wow you have a looker. The 2014 models are being announced in about 10 days and I will move forward from there, depending in pricing.
