Not to spoil the party, but it doesn't have mudguard mounts, so you can't get a full length mudguard. Not an issue when it's dry, but pretty uncomfortable when it's wet!
Don't listen to him Richard, mudguards ruin the aesthetic of your bike.
There's nothing wrong with getting your arse, drivetrain and the person behind you covered in crud
you're just jealous!. But thanks, i ask the guy in the shop and see what he/she recommends.
I was just going to say, Blades look way less dorky than full mudguards anyway, & you can fit them easily to your Synapse frame (I have one, it's a great frame) :-) (ps, can't believe you DNF'd BOC after NOT DNF'ing the last day of Portugal!!!!)
Thanks Sheralee, good to know. I had to retire at BOC as calf wasn't feeling good. You're right Portugal was way tougher. I really need to take a proper break from running to get it back fully fit so i'm forward to getting the bike very soon.
