I would just wait a couple weeks and something will probably pop up on the forum
Like this one
I have one of the previous gen CAAD12 discs I might be looking to move in the next couple of months
Searching for a size 56 CAAD 4/5 Saeco frame(set), ideally the US colorway or the optimo in bordeaux - any hints?
Any reason the Topstone wouldn't work for 'Cross?
I know nothing about bikes that ain't for tarmac only.
From what I understand it’s basically a synapse with more tire clearance so the bb is a bit low and cable routing might not be ideal. Having said that, I’ve done CX on a trek domane and it’s made zero difference - because I’m still shit
Nonetheless my shitness hasn’t stopped me officially joining the cannondale club
my 2018 Hillclimb bike. in this pic its sitting at 4.83Kg
Sick. Remove the conical spacer and SLAM!
Sadly, I need those 2.5cm!
Slam it and flip the stem.
Damn! Under 5kg and aluminium...
Trying to get my Caad10 to 5kg also.
More bb drop and a longer wheelbase makes for a less nimble but more planted ride I guess? Just need a commuter really and want to pretend this will fit the bill.
If you want to race cross on occasion and commute, surely a CAADX is the bike for you?
Are these carbon or alu rims? What hubs? Really like Capo
I scoured through the Topstone geometry (i'm considering buying one) and i can find essentially nothing in common with the Synapse.
If anything it's more like a CAADX with better cable routing, a sloping top tube and a bit more BB drop (although the BB height is only 3mm diff)
damn. more pics/spec
I think it would be a perfect commuter/weekend adventure bike
I reckon so. Forget the bit about cross. I was being silly.
Found these two shiny shiny's in a 1996 catalogue recently, thought here would be a good place to post them...
and... the other one
These are quiet common and also fairly cheap as they’re build around 26” wheels. I was thinking about getting one locally and go for a slave commuter with risers, silver dura ace and silly carbon wheels. Would be a banging bike I reckon.
4.83! very very nice
650c (571) is not what is commonly referred to as 26" (559)
Also, @gaston has one
