FOR SALE - Cannondale Synapse 2 carbon frame Feminine specific road bikeThe Bike Diva is getting a new road bike. Last night our urban night ride got cancelled due to thunder storms, so we drove over to Bike America and put down the deposit for my new bike. So that means that my just over a year old road bike is for sale. We bought it new September, 2006. It's a Cannondale Synapse 2 carbon frame Feminine specific road bike - MONDO COOL!!! List price for a new one: $2,999.99. We are looking to get $2,000 OBO.
Here's a picture, isn't she pretty!?! And it comes with Shimano pedals. I'm getting white Look pedals to match my new bike.
We're waiting to hear back from the Trek rep to see how long it's gonna take to get my new bike. The bike shop was originally saying 2 1/2 months, every body and her sister wants one, but his Trek rep is checking around for us and there is a chance she can get it for us in a week or two. So I can't actually let you have my Cannondale until my new one gets here. Currently training for the MS150 so I need roadie wheels. I'm getting a 2008 Trek Madone 6.5 WSD - OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! : Here's a review of my bike that is for sale from the bicycling.com website:
Best Women-Specific Road Bike: Cannondale Synapse Feminine Carbon 2
History may remember 2006 as the year female bike riders were, finally, given the gift of choice for performance-oriented bikes. We chose finalists for their combination of quality carbon frames and up-level componentry, and found excellence across the board, but with subtle variations. The Synapse Carbon Feminine gets our nod because of its balanced ride quality, the result of a stiff, efficient and lightweight carbon-fiber frame shaped into a geometry suited for both fast-paced rides and more-casual events. One tester noted that the Synapse felt the most responsive of the three, while another said the bike's proportions and stable ride made her feel especially confident and aggressive (Mavic's stiff Ksyrium Elite wheels enhanced the performance). Cannondale offers this bike, available June 1, in a double or triple chainring-we're hoping for a compact option, currently available on the men's Synapse and the R1000 Feminine, sometime in the future. ©Mitch Mandel
I'm not sure of the exact specs of my bike, if you live in SE Florida you could come see it in person!! I think this is pretty close: Weight: 17.1 lb. Size: 49 or 50. I'm 5' 5 1/2". Trek dealer said that was kind of a weird size for me but comparing Cannondale to Trek is like comparing apples to oranges. I think my new bike frame is going to be a 52. Component Highlights (I'm not sure of the exact details, I pulled this off a website): Shimano Ultegra crankset (53/39/30 or 50/39), cassette (12-25), brakes, reach-adjust 10-speed shifters and levers; Mavic Ksyrium Elite rims; ITM Elle Elite handlebar; FSA SL-K carbon seatpost.
Here I am riding it in the Intracoastal Century Ride in Cocoa Beach, FL - October 2006:
If you're interested in the bike send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, this bike was sold in the fall of 2008.
