The 2018 Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105 is an extremely popular bike. Every cyclist wants a bike that is light, comfortable and laterally stiff for optimum pedalling efficiency. Most manufacturers offer bikes that excel in one or two of those areas, the Synapse does well across the board. This Synapse is the ideal bike for any rider looking to enjoy their club ride, sportive or commute - hardcore racers looking for aggressive geometry (longer and lower) should look at the CAAD or Super 6 range of bikes from Cannondale.



Smoother, more compliant SAVE features for rougher roads and longer days in the saddle. An updated version of the system that started it all, SAVE PLUS offers even more vertical compliance than SPEED SAVE. Perfect for carrying top speed over the cobbles of northern Europe or for smoothing out your next Gran Fondo.


BallisTec is Cannondale's proprietary method of high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It is the ideal blend of the most advanced materials in the world combined with the most advanced carbon engineering and design.

Ready to ride
Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. More details can be found here.
Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
This process has a lead time of around 2-3 working days*
Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.
Making sure you are home
Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.
Taking Delivery
Any mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.
First Check-Over
After a few weeks of riding (depending on riding style and conditions), a new bike will need a check-over to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic. It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of the bicycle.
We can carry out the first check-over free of charge, at our Newcastle store (NE16JE). If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to get the bicycle to and from our store for this work to be carried out. This complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories.
All bikes must be booked in for the first service & must be clean or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable. You can book this by calling 0191 261 4191. Proof of purchase will need to be presented when the bicycle is dropped off for the first check-over.
Bike Servicing
Bicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.

Customer Reviews

Fab-u-lous Review by Peter
I'd been suffering cravings for a long time so decided to buy a Cannondale Synapse, carbon frame, 105 system. Start Fitness had them for the price of a pub meal over a grand which seemed very reasonable. I placed my order and before you could say knife it arrived.

I went out on it today after raising the saddle a bit - my previous bike was a Giant Defy which fitted me very well and had given great service for 8 years, and I set the Synapse up so that it was the same saddle and handlebar height - and all went swimmingly save that one of the brakes has been rubbing, but I'm sure I can sort that out.

What I wasn't expecting was the Synapse's real specialism, which seems to be going downhill. The Defy was a bit of a nervy descender, but on the strength of (admittedly) one ride the Synapse is so sure footed and so confident, it had me absolutely charging down off the Blackdowns like a rocket.

And if you haven't tried 105 yet, you just have to. The Giant has Sora, and it changes gear with the same enthusiasm and sense of urgency as some partners who are asked to put the rubbish out - they will put it out, of course they will, but not straight away. 105 does it so quickly it will shock you at first. While you are sitting there expecting the bike to finish watching its favourite programme before changing, it's already done it.

Thinking of buying a bike by post? You could do an awful lot worse. (Posted on 27/08/2018)
