Blast off!Long the crusher of cobblestones on one-day races like Paris-Roubaix, the Synapse sets the standard for smooth. And as the the World's Smoothest Cannondale Dealer, we love smooth. But with the new pyramid design, smooth meets speed uptown. As Cannondale says, "The seat tube splits asymmetrically at the bottom to accommodate a new, wider bottom bracket for serious stiffness without the added weight. The Power Pyramid is a solid base for laying down the power and laying out the competition." Wow.
The new Carbon Synapse with Shimano 105, we've got it. $2100The rest of the rear-end of the new Synapse has been redesigned as well. Cannondale calls it the "Save Plus" design, which means that you can ride the crap out of this bike without your backside crapping out on you. "The Save Plus technology gets new emphasis in the seat tube. The elegantly scalloped shape, combined with a narrow 25.4mm diameter seatpost, provides more sympathy in the saddle--even over the most remorseless roads." O man I love scallops.

That means that the Synapse is the perfect bike for organized rides like Aids LifeCycle or the Ride to Defeat ALS. So as usual, come on down to Huckleberry Town and test ride a new Cannondale Synapse. And if you don't believe me about Pyramid Power, just check this out:
Pyramid power gets the Presidential seal of approval!
