My wife's seen a heavily discounted 2015 carbon Cannondale Synapse Disc frameset & wants me to build it up for her as a winter bike.
I've told her she'd be better with a frame with proper guard mounts but she's asked me to looking to what guards could be fitted on a semi permanent basis.

What full guards would you recommend??

    My wife has a aluminium 2015 Synapse disc and I used the old classic SKS Chromaplastic P35 - work just great.

    Thanks for the reply, but doesn't the alu frames have mounts - there are none on the carbon hence the post.

    I've just got myself a Cannondale Synapse Adventure Disc which comes with mudguards as standard, not sure if all Synapse frames have the same fixing points. But mine does have them.

    Hope this helps.

    Apologies, I though Cannondale had mounts on all the Synapse framesets these days.

    Cross that one off my list for my next frame then!

    Just been into an Evans on the way home and I can confirm it looks like the alloy synapse has mounts and the carbon does not.

    If you want to fit full sks style mudguards on a carbon synapse, you'll need to get busy with zip ties and p clips.

    Other than that your onto crud racer or sks raceblades I think they are called.

    If it is not already bought and she is sure she wants full guards, might be worth reconsidering.
