Trying to find out how this frame rides, I know that it is not as stiff as a Orca. Can anybody help.

Rides very smooth! A nice balance between a stiff ride and a forgiving ride. Very stable in the corners and on the descents.

Great bike!

This frame is stiffer than an Orca. It's got a good deal more carbon fiber, particularly around the BB. My experience was that it was good and stiff so that a heavy (185 lb) rider didn't flex the BB and stays too much, but compliant enough to ride centuries without dying from road vibration. It handled very nicely on fast descents.

The Opal may be even stiffer than the Onix; I haven't tried one. But the Orca is definitely noticeably less stiff than the Onix.
