which do you think is a better bike? same components on both of them...
I can't comment on the Ridley, but I am very, very happy with my 505. It is light, stiff, very responsive and the relatively short top tube suits me well. Plus it looks great, and being an almost unknown brand here in North Texas it gets a lot of comments.

Never heard about Aerocat. Ridley make sound frames.

I know nothing about Aerocat either but can comment on Ridley. These are awesome machines and ride extremely well. What I found is that they size very big. I ride a M (53cm) Bianchi coming from a M (compact) Litespeed and a 54cm standard Bottechia. On the Ridley, I was an XS (could have made a small work if I had to but it wasnt right). Ill also comment that I didn't find that the Ridley handled as aggressively as other comparable bikes but was a very comfortable ride. For a crit/circuit race bike, the Ridley would not be my first choice. For a road race or any other type of ride, I think it would be fantastic if you can get the fit right.
