Thanks Chris!
Honestly, I think I had 10 people say the same thing to me when I made the move to Ridley from my Rock Lobster's this year. But, have you RIDDEN one?! I hadn't when our team made the decision to move to Ridley was made. Since having this first X-Night built up and ridden hard, I have carved and turned radically and intentionally tried to get this thing to feel top heavy and every single one of my fears on the bottom bracket issue were sincerely allayed. Not one sense of 'top heaviness' whatsoever. In fact, positionally I feel more aggressive while not having twitchy steering. I think it's a combination of the slack seat tube angle and the head tube angle. The bike seems to apex nicely into corners with me in the saddle without having to adjust my body position like I've had to do on prior bikes as I lay into corners.

It all feels pretty good to me.
