Lads at 1.73 5-8 I’m thinking small in Topstone . Have the option of Topstone alloy ultegra rx in small or a giant revolt carbon 105 in medium
What size Bars and stem come with the small ?

Haven’t decided on which to buy yet
My girlfriend is 1.65 and rides a small Topstone. I think with 1.73 M is the way to go.

1.83m size M will be ok?

Has anyone tried using it on the road with proper road wheels/tires? I guess anything 28c and below these days.

Slowly trying to convince myself, but not totally convinced.
I'm in the same boat as you - deciding whether to get one and if I do would use it for the London commute during the weekend and gravel stuff at weekends. Have had a CAADX for the past 4 years which has been a good workhorse but time for a change.

Hi everyone! I've fallen in love with the Topstone, but I have the same demand as Sigurd below: I need to be able to pull a Thule Chariot Lite 2.

I have a Thule Chariot Lite carrier that I need to pull using the bike. Is the bike compatible with any of Thules thru-axles? The axle is 142x12mm, but is it coned or straight? What brand is it? What's the thread pitch? The information (page 4 and 5) from Thule is confusing: https://www.thule.com.au/wp-content/upl ... _All-B.pdf
I've tried reading the thread, but can't seem to find a/the definite answer.

@ Sigurd: I see that you've posted in the thread longer down the line, so I guess that you came around this issue somehow. So my question is: How, and with which thru axle? And does it make a difference which Topstone, you buy/have? My budget only allows for the Sora at the moment.

I've tried writing both Thule and Cannondale, but haven't received an answer from any of them (yet at least). And I also tried asking my local Cannondale pusher, but he didn't know of a solution either.

Obviously anybody are welcome to chime in, if they know something. Thanks in advance, guys! :)

Sounds like correct size. I had a Topstone Carbon 105 in small before and am 1.74. The carbon model comes with 80mm stem and 400mm handlebar c-c at the hoods. 46 or something in the drops.

Based on my research just now, I think that the 105 needs a Thule thru axle with part number 20110733.

Another option is:

@kenk, @sigurd:

Theres a guy on Facebook in the Topstone owners' group who did exactly this, attaching his Thule to the Topstone.

He told me he got the Thule Chariot SyntaceX12 Axle Adapter M12x1.0mm, L=152-168mm. It's a bit short, though, so I guess the 160-172 would be better.

No idea tbh. I'll throw it on the scale tomorrow at the shop.
