    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    Ok perfect; The Pathfinder Pros seem like the consensus with Stefans experience as well. They seem a bit heavy, but a lighter wheel should balance that presumably

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    Thank you both! I'll do some further recon as well; The Ritchey looks great, but in the city I find flat bars to be a better fit for the pace.. ill keep those in mind for a road/distance bike though

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    Thanks all! So I think I'm going to pickup a Topstone 3 but wanted to get a few more insights on parts swaps if you dont mind Tires: I usually run 27.5x2.2 on commuter e-bikes; Sticking with stock alloy wheels for now as I don't think carbon is a good idea for riders 250+?, but any suggestion...

    Authorization to change the front chainring and rear gearing?

    So I emailed FSA regarding the 2x11 chainring that's on the Neo 2 and this was their response: "That chainring, crank, and spider combination (Topstone Neo 2x11), is an OEM setup for Cannondale. Each part would need to be purchased independently (cranks, rings, spider) and will only function...

    Thank you! I was curious if the rear gearing would be high enough for hilly terrain without the 2x11 and this answers that, so much appreciated!

    Hey all, so curious.. with the topstones, theres the Neo 2 which can hold 2 chainrings on a GRX800, with this being the case shouldnt all topstone Neos be able to run 2 chainings as well if retro-fitted?

    New Turbo Creo - First Impressions

    As well as the Cannondale Topstone Neos but I'm not sure those exist anymore

    New Turbo Creo - First Impressions

    Thank you for this.. Its not easy to get a sense for the motors acoustics in a video but it doesnt seem enough is made about the noise level on the Creo vs the Vado SL for some reason

    Specialized Turbo Vado SL: An Incredible E-Bike (User Club)

    Something similar to Treks e-caliber would be nice; maybe a Vado SL with limited rear suspension even

    Specialized Turbo Vado SL: An Incredible E-Bike (User Club)

    This is awesome info, thank you! Specialized only seems to be missing the "XC" model that sits between the Vado, Tero, Levo and SL models.. though this seems by far the closest

    Thanks! Is the Redshift a worthwhile upgrade over future shock or neglible?

    Vado 5 IGH problems on steep hill

    Could the software have improved, or is it the same on each model? There doesn't seem to be any additional settings on the Giant RideDash EVO. And do you know if the other modes are more accurate in estimation?

    Vado 5 IGH problems on steep hill

    So I have to say, after a number of rides this week on the FastRoad E.. this bike is PHENOMENAL.. its probably the best commuter pedal-assist bike I've ridden (havent ridden a Vado SL though), the FastRoad E is the first bike that feels like its a super-powered normal bike.. it just rides sooooo...

    Has anyone ridden singletrack or green trails on your SL (with proper tires of course)? If so, what did you think in comparison to an FS bike?
