I found out from a local bike shop that Cannondale has revised their cycle list and no longer carries the the T2 touring model. I had an interest in this bike when I tested it out a couple of years ago. The fit was very good. Very robust bike with good fit and finish. Most road bikes have top bar problems for me, 5'10, 28.5 inseam, long torso so this model was encouraging.
However when I tested it two years ago the price was at the level of a Kona Sutra which I found to be ridicules given the spec. Fast forward to today. After a quick conversation it became known that this dealer had one medium sized T2 Cannondale (my size) left in storage and needing assembly. It was a green 2009 model, just like the one I tried a two years ago.
The price will be marked about 28% off regular retail. Take it or leave it. This still puts the price point about 100-150 above a Kona Jake and remember, this bike is brand new old stock from two years ago.
Would you take the deal? Thanks for your input.
