So you haven't ridden the bike I'm reviewing but you disagree with my review? You also think the bike in question weighs 18lbs? You also think my review was somehow supposed to take into account the preferences of someone I've never met? Re-read what I wrote. Ride a 2018 Synapse Disc 105 (remember to weight it also). Then ride the 2017 Super Six 105. Then come back and tell me how my review is way off base.If the OP is looking at an endurance bike, what makes you think he would all of a sudden be interested in an aggressive race bike?
I own a 2014 Synapse Carbon and it is anything but slow.
