So, it's not gonna happened :( bicycle came with severe damages , store will refund purchase… :evil:

Good thing is, next frameset is ordered :) but this is for next topic. Because of my "karma" I will not write anything before it will be ready :mrgreen:

Frame is coming on Monday ( basically whole bike, but I'll strip it and assemble with my "old" stuff )…

Spec's :

Frameset : Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod 2014 , BBQ color scheme, size 54
Groupset : Campagnolo Chorus 2014 , 53-39 / 12-27
Cables : Campagnolo
Pedals : Look Keo Max limited edition
Saddle + seatpost : Fizik Alliante + FSA ( stock )
Stem+bar : Cannondale C1 ( stock , will be changed if need )

Wheels 1 : Campagnolo Eurus 2015
Wheels 2 : CF 38mm clincher , Dt Swiss 240 28R 24F , DT Rev's(F+NDS) and Comp's(DS) . Rims are still on it's way , so have to wait about week or so :( .

Tires : Conti 4000s , but it's beacause I already have them, ordered Schwalbe One 25mm, have some Mavic' 25's too.
Bar tape : Prologo cork
Computer : Garmin 510

Basically nothing really fancy or extremely lightweight, but purpose is to be comfy everyday bike for all kind of tarmac .

Stem & Bar possibly will be replaced, but first have to check fit, then decide. Same with saddle- on more agressive frame it didn't work, I have to check here. Then maybe exchange from "kium" to R0/R1 (?) .

Tricky part was BB30A bottom bracket and UT crank : thanks to DNM from other forum who sent me modification drawings and Lauri from in Tampere who milled NDS bb cup to higher accuracy than originally :thumbup: I'm able to mount UT crank in Synapse frameset :D

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)
