Cannondale Synapse alloy frame

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.

Cannondale Synapse alloy frame

I am looking at purchasing a Cannondale Synapse alloy (105 components & 58cm).
I want to see how this frame has changed over the last few years say from 2008-2012.
Does anyone know where I can find this type of information?
It will help me determine which year(s) to look at.
Thank you

Have you tried the Cannondale website www.cannondale.com? I have a 2011 Synapse 5 105 and I absolutely love it.

The frame design has not changed in the last 2 years, at least not that I am aware. I am not sure about before 2010 though.

Check the Cannondale website for their archives. They should have info on all of their bikes for at least the last 5 years.

Baj has the most knowledge about the Synapse for the time he has owned his. The owners I have talked with really enjoy the ride of the Al framed Synapse and the 105 grouppo is hard to beat when you consider bang for the buck. The vintage Cannondale site has a good repository of past catalogs so check there, as said.
