Bike Size Charts

BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Cannondale Adventure Neo Allroad. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

13 reasons to buy

  • Experts enjoy the “relaxed,” “smooth,” and comfortable ride thanks to the upright geometry and 2.6” tires.
  • One reviewer highlights the “predictable” handling, which isn’t affected by loaded panniers. An owner also says it feels stable.
  • Testers describe the build as robust and solid.
  • Each Adventure Neo Allroad comes in two builds (standard and EQ), each as a step-over or low-step with two sizes.
  • Experts appreciate the wide 740mm mountain bike-style handlebars for off-roading.
  • Reviewers praise the Adventure Neo Allroad’s versatility, especially the equipped (EQ) build.
  • The Adventure Neo Allroad EQ has fenders and a “beefy” rack rated for 55lb.
  • Both builds come with integrated lights.
  • Testers and owners relish the “impressive” 250W motor’s ability to flatten hills and cruise close to max speed.
  • The Allroad EQ’s torque sensor is praised for producing “very responsive” power delivery.
  • Owners agree Cannondale’s stated range is accurate. One tester achieves 30 miles on a hilly mixed-terrain route.
  • The Allroad EQ’s Tektro hydraulic disc brakes perform well in testing.
  • One expert describes the headlight as bright.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Both builds lack motor inhibitors.
  • Owners of the standard build complain that the mechanical disc brakes lack power.
  • The throttle is only active while pedaling, so the rider can't use it to pull away from a stop.
  • Reviewers describe the Adventure Neo Allroad as “hefty” and “ungainly.”
  • An owner complains that the frame-mounted battery blocks a lot of the step-through space.

Bottom line

The Cannondale Adventure Neo Allroad is a “capable,” “do-it-all” commuter with a 250W hub motor and 2.6” Kenda mountain bike tires. This bike earns praise for its comfort, stable and predictable handling, and surprisingly effective motor. However, buyers wanting more power should consider the 750W Allroad Speed. The EQ build’s “responsive” torque sensor and powerful hydraulic brakes are highlighted. Most complaints are minor, but the bike is considered “hefty,” and the standard build’s mechanical brakes lack power. Both experts and owners underscore the Adventure Neo Allroad’s “great value” and deem it a solid choice for commuting and rail-trail exploring.

Cannondale Adventure Neo Allroad ST Review

… a simple electric hybrid-style bike that most anyone could enjoy… the bike trades power for its lightweight. Wide knobby tires bring some versatility to the rigid bike while its ergonomic seated position readies it for exploration.

Cannondale Adventure Neo Allroad EQ Review

… it’s great value for the avid gravel and rail-trail cyclist. It’s also incredibly durable, fun to ride, and equipped with parts that make it an excellent commuter bike that also can easily haul cargo around on the [rear] rack.
