    New Cannondales Showing Up in USA?

    Is it just me or are they also increasing the prices of the existing bikes too as they update the website? My Topstone Neo Carbon 2 was listed as $6500 a couple of months ago. Now it is $6800 (even at REI).

    Neo Carbon Lefty 1 vs Carbon 2

    Chris - I did put Light & Motion Vis-E integrated lights but I wouldn't recommend them. They have limited mounting options, are functional but not very well thought out lights. I do recommend integrated lights in general though. You can control them directly from Kiox and you don't have to worry...

    Neo Carbon Lefty 1 vs Carbon 2

    So it wasn't the hub after all, but the motor. Glad to hear that they replaced it. By the way, I had my first tumble this weekend. I did the exact same thing in your profile picture. Got stuck in recessed railroad tracks and flew off the bike. Luckily the bike fell on me, so bike is fine :)

    Neo Carbon Lefty 1 vs Carbon 2

    I love my Carbon 2 as well. I have not ridden it proper off-road yet, so I cannot comment on how harsh the rigid carbon fork is, but we have pretty rough pavement here and so far it is a waaay more comfy ride compared to my old rigid Sirrus. The kingpin works very well and I don't miss front...

    Cannondale Synapse Neo 1 (2020) - 1 month review...

    Some models come with an additional wheel sensor installed at the front hub that was designed by Garmin. It syncs with the Cannondale App (and supposedly with Garmin Connect). I'm not sure if Bosch uses this sensor at all (I think it relies on spoke mounted sensor on the back wheel instead)...

    Cannondale Synapse Neo 1 (2020) - 1 month review...

    @carsonjones Do you get correct speed readout from the built in Cannondale/Garmin wheel sensor via the Cannondale app? Or is that off as well? Just curious. If that sensor is giving correct speed it might be a slight leverage to convince Cannondale that something is off.

    Is anything new with Orbea Gain 2020?

    I was just looking at the new Orbea Gain models. They all now come with X35 Plus you mention. Max torque is still 40 Nm. With all internal cabling the bikes look really nice. Really tempting. One day when I get fit enough for them ...

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    The only clicking I hear is when I use big-big or small-small cross-chain gear positions on my 2x11 Carbon 2. Most probably caused by chain rubbing against front derailleur. I have not taken it back for the break-in tune up yet. Hoping that will get less after some adjustment. Otherwise...

    Buy Now or Wait Until 2021?

    137 miles for that motor and battery combo does seem a bit high. REI lists it as 93 miles which makes more sense compared to the Topstone Neo Carbon 2 I have (listed as 75-80 miles). Unfortunately, according to the 2020 Electric Bikes Manual I got with my Topstone, Synapse Neo SE doesn't seem to...

    It's fire season again

    https://www.ecowatch.com/california-wildfire-gender-reveal-partyty-2647518193.html?rebelltitem=2#rebelltitem2 As of today the fire has burned more than 13K acres and is only 31% contained. All because a couple though it was a great idea to use a colored smoke bomb in a grass area to let the...

    Product Improvement:- Feedback to Bosch.

    I really really don't like the sound of this finger pointing back and forth between OEMs and Bosch. Nothing good comes out of this setup for the consumer. I too am trying to figure out a motor error I have with my brand new Cannondale bike. Cannondale says it's Bosch I need to contact, Bosch...

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    @Deacon Blues Thanks for the info. That could mean "hey I'm missing the lights you just told that hooked up to me" or "you just messed up all wiring I'm just going to combust if you excuse me". I guess I'll find out tomorrow if I'm lucky when I contact my dealer who doesn't know much about this...

    Product Improvement:- Feedback to Bosch.

    The internet says it means " An improper electrical load was detected.". Can mean "I'm expecting load from lights but there is none" or "your dealer hooked up something wrong you better go have them fix it".

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    Do any of you get any error codes when you turn on your Kiox/Purion? I'm getting Error 550. Trying to figure out if it is due the lights not been hooked up yet.

    Product Improvement:- Feedback to Bosch.

    I just received my Topstone Neo Carbon 2 with Kiox display. When I turn it on I'm greeted with "Error 550 - Please contact your bike dealer". Is this something I need to worry about? I have wiring for lights but no lights installed yet. Is it related to that?

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    I just called Cannondale. They say the bike comes with pre-wiring but no lights. @GHOST's might be an REI only deal.

    Cannondale Topstone Gravel Ebike

    @Bill Goldman my Neo Carbon 2 is coming with wiring for lighting (exposed like yours) but with no lights. @GHOST is the only one so far who got the light with the bike. I wonder which light REI provided. By the way is Lefty 3 using CX motor? If so, Sport mode is most probably is the tweaked...

    Need advice on Cannondale and Bosch

    I just got a call. Looks like the bike was asking for the latest firmware. I'd categorize that as benign. Hopefully I'll have a fully functioning bike tomorrow. Now I need to find integrated lights that are compatible with Kiox. Apparently the bike has the cabling (exposed) but no lights.

    Need advice on Cannondale and Bosch

    Thanks @SoCalDave. Yes REI is my option B. They were too swamped last time I asked them. The build time was 2-3 weeks on top of 2-3 weeks delivery.
