Be gentle on me. I'm new to cycling and have purchased the Cannondale Synapse Alloy 2016. It's great to ride (for a novice) but I hear of so many possible upgrades!!

What should I do that's worth the hassle ??

    Nothing yet ... Just ride

    As a total beginner you won't notice if you put aero wheels on or if your rubber rolls 1% quicker as each day you go out you are still learning the bike ..... Get to know the bike 1st, then when you upgrade you will get the benefit of actually noticing a difference

    Get out and ride it and if after a while the saddle still hurts (with padded pants and a few miles under your wheels) then get yourself to a bike shop and get your censored measured.

    Leave the rest alone for a good while

    The biggest upgrade will be your fitness level as you ride more, save your money and just enjoy your bike.
  • Thank you for the replies.

    I shall heed your guidance and leave well alone for a while!!
