Well, between the 54 (M) and 57 (L) in Ridley's sizing I would recommend going with the smaller of the two, if choosing only on that criteria. What would be better though, would be to determine your reach and which of those sizes gives you the better fit. If the 54 can fit your reach also, then you have a winner. If you get mixed results, like the 57 is too tall, but the 54 is too short of reach, then maybe Ridley's geometry isn't ideal for you. I went with a L Damocles in large part because it had both the stack (height) and reach that fit me well (and because I think it's a killer bike).

Also, you probably know this, but I think the Fenix and Orion are the newer entry level bikes. I think the Excalibur could also work for your purposes but no idea what your budget is. Icarus could be on sale though since it looks to be discontinued.
