Details

Cannondale built the Women's Synapse 5 to provide the same wonderful efficiency and speed of its renowned racing bikes with ample comfort too. Its light and stiff Cannondale aluminum frame gets all your pedal power to the road for excellent acceleration, climbing and cornering and their carbon fork soaks up road vibrations so you enjoy a velvety-smooth ride. You'll pedal comfortably up and down the hills, too, thanks to the 20-speed FSA/Shimano 105 drivetrain with compact gearing that lets you spin up the climbs. Plus, you get powerful Tektro brakes for total control on the descents. You'll also ride further with less effort than ever on the speedy Shimano wheels wrapped with grippy Schwalbe tires. And you'll love the supportive Cannondale women's seat.

Comments:

I'm a bike commuter with asperations of grandeur. Plan to include more cycling into my fitness routine. I have ridden a tank of a bike that was a mtn bike with slick tires for the last 5 years. It must weigh at least 30lbs. This new bike was a grad present to myself and I can't believe I waited this long to go back to the road bike. This bike is cute, fits well and is very comfortable even compared to the mtn bike. As I commuter I had fenders added, I know, ruins the street cred but it looks funky. All my lights, computer and bell all fit on the handle bars and only cramps the right hand by about 1cm. The compact had me worried but I just charged up the hill in [...] and didn't even get to the easiest gear! Trust me, that's not the fitness bragging! It was all bike. I hit 54kph as well and it felt rock steady. The shifter is easy to use and in less than 1 day I had it figured out.Only downside is the fenders get in the way of the toes for the slow tight handlebar turn. Practice with the correct foot forward doesn't take long. Over all, great value for the money, the 105 Shimano is reliable and easy to clean and take care of. So far the whole bike has exceed my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone.

    I fell in love with this bike after the first test ride. It's really light weight and very comfortable - I feel like I can ride longer and faster now! The brushed aluminum finish is beautiful as well :)
