My LBS has a sale on Synapse bikes. A friend is considering one, so I'm checking on his behalf.
Question is: do you think the 09 frame is that much more superior than the 08?

Would you recommend a 09 frame with Shimano Tiagra/Sora Mix?
08 frame with full 105?

Spec'd out they are very different, looks like the '09 has some cheaper parts on it. But he could always upgrade the '09 later.

Both bikes are around 1,4000 bucks..

I've never riden either. Both are Carbon (not hi-mod)

I dunno. Perhaps, but it's seems to be supply and demand on these things. There's not a lot out here where we live. Only one Shop had an 09 in stock.

But he got impulsive anyway. I think he's buying the 09 tonight.. He went to test ride it after work. So the point maybe mute.

Personally, I think they both look like awesome bikes. I'm sure he will be happy with either. Although, I predict many upgrades soon.
