Frame help/advice wanted

by Nevetsyarg   March 21, 2012  

I am looking into a new frame and ideally want a carbon on but have seen a Cannondale Synapse alu one quite cheap and wondered if anyone had experience with this frame?

i have the caad10 so essentially very similar. its brilliant. having had a carbon frame written off by a gentle knock with a white van i am sticking to metal from now on. the synapse is slightly heavier but is in the realm of mid carbon weights anyway. rode 70 miles on the caad10 last saturday with no issues on comfort. i would highly recomend going for it if its got any of the cannondale dna. they know how to build a good ride. p.s my bike shopping budget was £2500 and after several test rides the 2011 clearance cannondale was top with no competition and only spent £899 Smile so for my bike budget alone i got everything i needed garmin the works Smile
