    New Bike -- Mrs Zoxe Cannondale

    As I mentioned on @Beachgrad05 's new bike thread, we went to the LBS today looking for a new ride for Mrs. Zoxe.

    While waiting for the sales guy to be free, we walked the rack, and Mrs. Zoxe was gravitationally pulled towards the Cannondale Synapse series.

    We talked through a lot of options with the local guys, but weren't particular on brand. She rode a very nice carbon Scott that was in her size (it was a 2013 and marked down very nicely), but kept coming back to the Cannondale. We settled on the 105 group Synapse 5 and took her home.

    Despite it being cold and windy, we are just back from a shakedown ride. Not sure of a better way to kick off the 2014 season.

    Maybe it's the frame size or the picture angle but that doesn't LOOK like a synapse - they have curved seat stays. Regardless, Mrs TH has a AL synapse as well and really likes it. Nice work hubby!

    Could be the angle, or could be all the crud that my cell phone camera leaves behind.

    Anyway, this is her: http://www.cannondale.com/catalog/pr.../category/936/

    It definitely looks different than they used to - here's what my wife's looks like. I think it's a 2011 or so, I don't recall. The fork looks a lot different on yours too.

    Progress!
