Robert M.wrote a review of Ridley Helium Force 22 Complete Road Bike - 2016 on April 17, 2017
This is my third Ridley, Damocles, Excalibur then this Helium. All were great but this is the best of the bunch. It has the perfect combination of stiffness for power transfer yet comfort for those long rough days. Very neutral handling, not twitchy but still descends great. It does exactly what you tell it to do.
The Force 22 is great and shifts perfectly. I rarely have to make small adjustment for cable stretch but thats it. Swapped to Red brakes. The Force/Rival brakes are good but the Red's are great.
You cant go wrong with this deal. A first class bike at a bargain price. Now you can add those carbon wheels without scaring your wife!
