The Synapse is Cannondale's endurance model, equally adept at commuting or exploring. The alloy frameset uses their long-standing expertise with that material to build a remarkably comfortable bike. It's also extremely good value, with arguably the only corner cut on the stock build being the cable-operated disc brakes. So here we've upgraded to Shimano 105 hydraulic discs, for improved modulation and stopping power.
For year-round versatility it's fitted with the always reliable SKS Bluemels mudguards, and we'll also be taking advantage of the provision for a rack (not pictured).
This 44cm bike has been carefully fitted to its new owner (yes, that's a Bontrager 70mm stem fitted to ensure the perfect position for comfort and efficiency). Because there's really no such thing as a "stock" bike at Bespoke - every bike we sell is tailored to suit its rider by our expert bike fitters.
