    2008 Masi Gran Crit or Cannondale Synapse SL Liquigas

    Help me deside. Both are in my price range. I plan to upgrade the wheels on the Gran Cirt and get Ultegra SL instead of SRAM Rival.

    I can't tell you which one to buy, other than ride them both and get the one you like the most

    Are they from the same LBS? If not, go with the LBS you like the best or treats people the best, since you like them both.

    Then go with the shop that gives the best service, or if both are at the same shop, flip a coin 3 times and best two out of three.....

    If the coin stands on edge three times though, ya gotta buy both

    I was shopping for a bike a year ago and I had the feeling that the largest aluminium synapse frame was a bit soft in the bottom bracket region (this might have changed and might be of no concern for you whatsoever). I went with a cheaper but stiffer Raleigh cadent.
