    Ah, okay. That makes sense. It may in fact have been two different organizations.


    Yeah, I know that the 2014 Synapse can take 70x28s as well. I'm just curious what advantages the 28 tires have...

    I'm nothing like that Gumby (at 5'5" and a 29" waist), and the Elite 2.1 (size S) fits me perfectly. It feels like it was designed for me. :)

    Just makes me wonder how much money Cannondale can save by using the 105 5800 cassette rather than the Ultegra 6800? Apparently the difference isn't significant (a few grams?), but the price...

    Thanks! I'll be patient and take things step by step for recovery. As for the ride, no, I didn't ride the PMC. Must have been someone that looks like me. :)
