Today’s bike of the week has been one of our very most popular women’s bikes over the years. Going back to that “go at least 105” saying from an earlier post, this Synapse does that on a budget. At $1350, the comfortable aluminum frame boasts a carbon fork, light weight Shimano wheels, and women specific touch points (saddle, handlebars, brake levers/shifters) so the fit is just right. We find that this is the best meeting place between performance and value. The carbon framed version of this bike is at $2000, so the aluminum option is great for keeping on budget.
This bike is made for women that are typically first time road riders, want to do a few triathlons, bike tours/charity events, or just want to get in shape. That is who the Synapse is designed for.
