I have a Synapse alloy tiagra that I rode on and off for about two years. I bought a CAAD12 this past August and fell in love. The difference in position isn't that much different. I did end up getting a fit done, but that was more about me getting serious about riding my bike more. I'm looking to sell my synapse now. Mainly because it is so heavy, at 23lbs it is a monster compared to my 17lb CAAD12. Overall I didn't think the synapse was bad, I felt cramped up by the geometry. The CAAD12 geometry suits me better, and I like the feel of a lighter bike more. If you can try and ride both I would say do that. If not, I would push towards the CAAD12
