Okay, so yesterday it was gonna be an Orbea Fleche, but after a visit or 2 to some LBS's we are now tied between the above bikes. Anybody have any experience with the synapse? I know the allez is fairly well respected and the 09 version looks dead sexy!!! (which isnt that critical - but it kind of is :-) ) Both are available for about the same money and interest free for 12 months so that isn't really an issue.

If anyone has any experiences with either frame would be great to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance

Ash

    im in the same boat. im considering the allez tripple 09 and the Focus Variado 2008 from wiggle.co.uk.

    The focus looks abit better specced.

    tbh after talking to a guy at work he said at my price level all the bikes are pretty mucxh the same specced, just find more comfy.

    If i can get on the cycle to work scheme ill buy the allez 09, if i cant ill buy the focus from wiggle

    Got it for £569 (£100 off rrp) at my LBS after I showed them the price on a t'internet site (pedal on). Bloke in shop almost had a heart attack but agreed to match the price, and throw in some pedals and 2 free services!!! Over all very happy, took it for a quick spin tonight but my roads round my house havent been surfaced yet so very bumpy ride!!! Will take it out on the lanes in the week.
