What does he like the most about the Synapse? I suffuring "The grass is greener" with the FUJIs, Scattante & Motobecanes with the "Ultegra & 105" components. The LBS with the Synapse ($1229) & Allez Elite ($1300) have a great group of people that answer questions, life time adjustment on the bike components (I guess that means shifting/braking) & bike fitting (one LBS would only give me the initial fitting with follow-up adjustments $70/hr). I am leaning hard for the Synapse but the Allez has the full 105. Which frame do you think will be the most comfortable for my goal of a "Metric" & "Standard" century? The Allez was great on a short ride not sure on the long distance. I really want to take the Synapse out for a test ride. Thanks for advise...
