My old road bike is for sale. It's priced to sell - $1500, OBO. The bike, pictured above, is a 2006 Cannondale Synapse 2 WSD (women’s specific design) carbon frame road bike. List price for a new one: $2,999.99.

I’m not sure of the exact specs of the bike - come see it in person!!

I think this is pretty close:

Component Highlights: Shimano Ultegra crankset (50/39), cassette (12-25), brakes, reach-adjust 10-speed shifters and levers; Mavic Ksyrium Elite rims; ITM Elle Elite handlebar; FSA SL-K carbon seatpost.

The bike is located in Delray Beach. For further details or to see the bike in person contact Rob at 561-239-2880 or email robsmythe01@aol.com.

Here’s a review of the bike that is for sale from the bicycling.com website:

Best Women-Specific Road Bike: Cannondale Synapse Feminine Cabron 2

History may remember 2006 as the year female bike riders were, finally, given the gift of choice for performance-oriented bikes. We chose finalists for their combination of quality carbon frames and up-level componentry, and found excellence across the board, but with subtle variations. The Synapse Carbon Feminine gets our nod because of its balanced ride quality, the result of a stiff, efficient and lightweight carbon-fiber frame shaped into a geometry suited for both fast-paced rides and more-casual events.

One tester noted that the Synapse felt the most responsive of the three, while another said the bike’s proportions and stable ride made her feel especially confident and aggressive (Mavic’s stiff Ksyrium Elite wheels enhanced the performance). Cannondale offers this bike, available June 1, in a double or triple chainring-we’re hoping for a compact option, currently available on the men’s Synapse and the R1000 Feminine, sometime in the future.
