Jozuph you are absolutely pathetic. I'm sick of your cryptic, jumbled posts. I don't see why you always turn everything into a AMERICA vs. THE WORLD kind of issue. This has nothing to do with my country. Perhaps you have some sort of complex stemming from a broken childhood or something. Grow up.

I think he's unhappy about Holland. In his country people can't elect their head of state, the prime-minister, members of the house, senators, provincial governors, or even their city mayors. They also don't have trial by jury and lawyers are permitted to act as judges in part-time jobs....it can't be good for a person to live in such a place :lol:

I like the seat stays on the Synapse; almost always are done with a "monostay" pathern; do you think it's a improvement or just the carbon version of their hourglass aluminium seat stays?

Once again, you make no sense. Please, you act like this is the first time you have made inflamatory remarks about the US on this board. I was not born yesterday. If you feel that way, that's fine. But am bothered when you repeatedly bring it up when it is irrelevant to the subject at hand.

Tell you what-- I'm just going to ignore everything you say in the future, and feel free to do the same with my posts, since this board doesn't have an ignore feature.

PS- You are not funny, especially when you say "hihi just sarcastic." Who do you think you are, a little giggling schoolgirl?

Brian, you might want to get used to anti US sentiment if you intend to travel overseas. The war on terrorism has resulted in a marked increase in anti US sentiment.

I know it's got nothing to do with you, but the US re-elected Bush so someone in the US agrees with his international decisions.

Just to bring this back to topic..

All due respect to cannondale they make some fine alu. frames and are a fine company from what I know. But I'd never buy a carbon frame from them. They've been making carbon bikes for .. oh, 10 minutes? :lol: I'm not drinking any cannondale coolaid over the synapse partly because I remember the stupid marketing ploy of 'legalize my cannondale' on the 6-13 .. a frame neither very stiff OR light.

I wouldn't worry about their experience. They have lots of it concerning carbon and what they lack in knowledge and experience they can buy just as any company with sufficient operating capital. In this day and age the development curve of a manufacturer doesn't have to consist of decades of so called in-house experience.

Don't take it so seriously. It might not be perfect, but Holland is a very nice place to live. Easy going and generally friendly people. They have some of the best bike roads in the world and riding in the street is very safe as well.
