Very nice. I just picked up my new N+1 yesterday, so I know the feeling of getting a new bike to ride. Enjoy your rides and have fun with your new bike.

Very, very nice ride you got there, I am extremely biased towards C'dales. Very nice Synapse. Which model did you get? I cannot tell the aluminum frame from a carbon fiber in pictures.

It's the Synapse 5 full carbon, and it rides like a dream.

Whew...que purty! I want one too. The paint scheme is beautiful! Any thoughts comparing a Cannondale 3 Ultegra and a Trek Madone 5.2?
