The Cannondale Topstone is a gravel/adventure bike, but it also
makes for a great commuter steed, and isn't afraid of loading up on
some training miles.
A generous selection of mounting points for bottles, bags, racks
and mudguards make this a bike ready for anything. This build has
been upgraded with a Quarq power meter so that no effort will be
wasted whether training, commuting or exploring.
The aluminium frame and carbon forks are a tried and tested
combination giving superb value for money and, with Cannondale's
alu expertise and a relaxed geometry, a great deal of comfort.
Not a race bike, maybe, but a valuable addition to the stable
that will happily deal with any weather and is versatile enough to
fill a variety of roles.
