    Feedback wanted: 2018 Synapse Carbon Ultegra

    Any owners on the forum that can chime in about this model? I have no Cannondale dealer in my area. A reputable LBS about 225 miles away has a single bike on clearance in my size. My plan was to save up over the winter and order a new bike next spring from another brand that I could purchase locally.

    The full Ultegra spec on this Synapse and positive reviews are tempting, but it's a lot to spend without a test ride. I need a push either way.

    Thanks.

    I doubt you would go wrong, but that being said, I would not buy a bike without a test ride. The bike has a great reputation, but a great reputation doesn't mean you will like it. You may test ride it and love it or you may go meh.

    In this case, I would pass.
