cannondale synapse tiagra or giant defy 1 3 years 4 months ago #3551

I'm after opinions on these two bikes as a new commuter/winter bike, both bikes take mudguards & both have their own pros & cons, just wondering if anybody out there owns or has ridden either of them & has an opinion?

I have a Synapse and love it, good all day ride machine as well.
The CAAD 10 Cannondale is a good buy as well.

further to my previous post, i've now looked at the cannondale synapse in the flesh & i'm not struck on the colour scheme, however the cannondale caad8 tiagra looks good. I know the geometry is a bit more race orientated but it could work for what I want, anybody any thoughts on this model

If you look on Bikeradar for the review of CAAD8 you will not go far wrong.

Usually, Bikeradar are very good on judgement.

Hope it helps.

Thanks ken, I'm definately edging towards the caad8 now, especially after reading the bikerader review :cheer:

Both those bikes are popular within the club, give it a few days and a few more might post up. As always I'd say do a test ride tho. I've got a CAAD10 and it's the best bike (in my spec :cheer: ) that I've ever ridden although for others it might be a bit too racey.

The only thing with the Caads are the colourschemes. The basic caad8 sora in red/black is nicer than the higher spec ones and the Caad10 colur schemes can be really dodgy. At least Giant usually have fairly neutral colours.
