    New Ride

    Just got back from a 44 mile ride to the beach and back on my new bike.. I am surprised by how easy it was to ride Mostly thanks to my LBS for making a proper fit.

    I came from a Cannondale M300 MTB and went the Synapse 6 Apex. Skinny tires and better components really do make a difference! Very happy with the purchase. Hands still ache a bit but not as bad as on the MTB.

    Nice bike. Congrats.

    Though you realize it doesn't really exist until we see photos.
