Had this for just 3 weeks now and it is just the most comfortable bike Ive ever ridden. The DA shifters & rear mech came off my cross bike that I hardly ever used.



Chuffed to bits.


  • love it love it love it!

    I'm trying to buy one at the moment but not much stock around in the South. I love the colour scheme. Was toying with the six but decided the Synapse was more suited to my riding. Not sure whether to go compact or triple, lots of hills around here and I still need to lose some weight!

    Can I be rude and ask how much? I've been quoted £1799.

    Did I mention that I love it?
  • Not rude at all.

    They are £1799, but my LBS knocked me a bit off that as well as throwing in some bottles, cages, gels and swapping over my shifters & rear mech.

    I had a problem with the BB - it started clicking - so they took it out and regreased it. Its been fine since. Im really pleased I shopped local & I didnt order it online. Great service.

    Yeah, theres one or two hills here too, but I dont think theres anything that cant be breached on a compact.
