Extremely comfortable and looks gorgeous

Posted23 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Bought as first road bike. Really impressed. Extremely comfortable and fast. Was slightly confused by the huge amount of options with entry level bikes but from talking to others who went around then£6-700 mark, I am glad I spent a little bit more as the ride quality and gearing is a lot better. And it looks great which helps you get out there

Very Smooth and very quick

Posted09 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, reach perfect
This is my first road bike and I couldn't be happier, I had a Cannondale Q4 Hybrid which was amazing, saddly it was stolen. I had to replace it with the Specialized Sirrus, Please don't bother, rubbish and the seat is awful. Finally I have been able to get the bike I really wanted. I have never done distance, 2 days into owning the 'Synapse' I did Nott'm to Matlock. 1hr. 23mins. a week later I did 55k in 1hr. 40 mins.
You will not find a better ride for the price, I'm 16st and dropping weight all the time. It's brilliant. Thanks Cannondale.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
This is my first road bike having upgraded from a Specialized Hybrid and i couldn't be more pleased. Have only been out for a few rides so far due the the inclement weather but already noticing the difference. Great looking bike, comfortable. Bring on my first Sportive.

Excellent ride!!

Posted06 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
I’m in the early stages of riding (beginner) and this was suggested as a good first entry bike, to be honest it’s been a great purchase and I would recommend this bike to both beginners and experienced riders.

Good first road bike after a hybrid.

Posted26 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I rode a Specialized Hybrid for a couple of years but wanted a road bike as well. I decided to set my budget at £1000 max so I went for an alloy frame with Tiagra equipment. I finally chose the Cannondale Synapse because of its slightly more upright riding position. I've not ridden much recently due to the November weather but I'm confident that the bike will be more than adequate for my requiements.
