Low traffic route from Portland to Eugene

I'm looking for a bike friendly way to ride from downtown Portland to Eugene in a day on a lightly loaded touring bike. Ideally this would be 130 miles or less. It looks like 99W is a pretty easy...

I already did a search about the Pacer, but didn't find exactly what I'm looking for. It seems like they make good long distance bikes and overall you Pacer owners like your bikes!

I like the size down from that. It's 2 paper grocery bags in size, and it's deep enough to hold stuff in. Those flat rack are much more bungee dependent.

Show me your Surly Pacer, can you get it under 20lbs?

I have an older steel Lemond that's just a little too big for me. I'm looking for a new frame and fork (or just new to me) that'd be 1 1/8" and threadless that I could swap with the Lemond. Right...
