    Greetings from Portland, Oregon

    Riding an old Cannondale Mountain Bike upgraded to a hybrid but, looking to buy my first carbon.

    Maybe I can get some advice:

    I am down to two bikes:

    1.) Motobecane Le Champion CF Ltd - $1495
    (Bicycling Magazine just get this bike a pretty decent review in Sept 09 issue)

    2.) Cannondale Synapse Carbon 5 Compact - $1995

    It seems the Motobecane has better components while the Cannondale has a better frame? I am leaning Motobecane... because I think I will be getting more bike and saving $500.

    I would really like to hear your opinions.

    Welcome Thom. This is the Introductions forum. You'll get more responses if you ask about the bikes in either the Road Cycling forum or the General Cycling forum.
