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.

So I've been an owner for a few months now of a topstone alloy and didn't realize that the fork has no eyelets or braze ons (not sure if that's what they are called) to mount a front rack.

Has anyone found an aftermarket adventure/utility fork that fits the specs?

I really love the bike except for this one bit that it does not have this ability to carry stuff on the front fork.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry if this question has already been answered, but are there any issues running 386 cranks on the carbon Topstone? I run Rotors on everything since they are one of the only 155mm powermeter options. I'm confused with the combo of BB30A and the offset cassette if there are chainline/offset Q factor issues running non Cannondale cranks.
