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
