I've decided I'm getting a Cannondale synapse (105), but I have a few questions first:
1. I hate the 2015 color schemes. Black on black or at best, black on green on black. I love this one on the 2016 version:

I think this is usually around 20% off, and from the retail prices at the shop might end up around an actual 10% from their usual price. So would you pony up the money to have a better paint scheme, assuming that is the only other difference to be found?
2. I know the 2016 models are floating around at this point. However, I can't find any official information on them from Cannondale. Does anyone know enough to confirm that other than paint schemes there aren't any differences between the 2015 and 2016 models (non hi-mod)?
3. What the best way to haggle the LBS down in price?
