I test rode a Synapse when I was shopping last August. It felt OK, but the CAAD12 felt so much better. I don't think I can put it into words. Smoother? More agile? More on fleek? Fleekier?

The 52/36 works great for me, but I live in a very flat place. I've been on some hills where I had to drop to the small chainring, but I've never come close to running out of lower gears.
