    Ridley Helium SLX or Fenix Sl

    I'm looking at the Helium SLX and the Fenix SL. I rode a Helium but not a Fenix. Except for tire clearance, the geometry is very similar. Any firsthand expereince with both frames? Also, I plan to get some Zipp 303 down the road and wondering if these wide Firecrest rims work with the Helium.

    Probably not all that helpful of a response but I ride the 2015 model Fenix.. Honestly I don't find it super inspiring and it isn't flashy to look at but it does the trick really well. Not overly comfortable, not overly rigid. Multiple 100+ miles rides with 8k+ climbing and apart from some fit tweaks I made personally haven't had any issues with it. It is, simply put, a good bike that goes like a train. I'm sure the latest models are as good if not better. Note: I haven't ridden a helium before..

    Never have had any issues cornering/descending with it, but I think people make too big a deal of those sorts of things in reviews, I think that ability comes down to the rider at the end of the day...
