Anyone had any experience with this bike?

Looking to buy my first road bike and I can pick up a second hand 2013 model for under £300 which is my budget, struggling to find many reviews online so just wondering if anyones heard good/bad things about it?

I'll be looking to do the prudential ride London 100 mile cycle on this bike come august so I need it to be suitable for long hilly rides

    Is it the alloy framed model with caliper brakes you are referring to? The Synapse is their endurance/sportive bike so you should have no trouble with a 100 mile ride as long as you get one the correct size. ... -synapse-6
  • Own one, it's stood me very well as a trainer/commuter. You'll have no trouble putting 100 miles in on it.

    The stock wheels/tyres and brakes aren't amazing, and I couldn't get on with the bar tape and saddle (YMMV) , but the frame/fork are solid, very comfortable and not hugely heavy, and Tiagra works very well. It's a very smooth platform, particularly with decent 25mm tyres on there.

    My wife has the 2014 version of the bike and once the brakes were upgraded it has been fine. If the bike is in good condition then £300 sounds fair.
