    No one here seems to carry them in stock. I noticed the travelling test ride caravan will be in town this Sunday so I'll finally get to look at them. What are you seeing for the '06 pricing on these two bikes?

    TIA

    Is that the T800 or T2000?

I'm not a big fan of straight blade forks either.

    The local REI has an 05 T800 for $1000. Unfortunately they won't take the 20% off coupon on Cannondale, or I would buy it, not that I need another bike...

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you could expound a bit on your comment that "I didn't find the T2000 to be that much better than the 800." I may be getting a new touring bike in the not too distant future.

    Thanks,
    David in FL

    The T2000 has a few more refinements than the T800 but I'm not sure they are worth the extra dollars. For example, the T2000 has a suspension post which is of limited value in my opinion. It has Ultegra shifters which really aren't that much better (for touring) then the Tiagra. At least it uses a Tiagra front derailer which is superior for touring over an Ultegra (I have both and the Tiagra is better for triples). The T800 has a chrom-moly fork which is a little more forgiving then the straight blade aluminum fork of the T2000. Plus the curved blades of the steel fork just look nicer (personal choice ) Everything else is just a slight uptick from the T800.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I have replaced all of the stuff on my 2003 T800 with much higher quality gear. That means that I had less high end components to get rid of or feel bad about putting them in the parts box

    Lubers, I bought the same bike for the same price!
    What kind of fenders do you have? I tried to install generic ones but they would not fit on the rear.

    Why is the Tiagra front derailer superior to Ultegra for touring?

    The Ultegra that I have rubs more in more combinations then the Tiagra I have. The Tiagra just seems a bit wider in the plates than the Ultegra. Both derailers are used on 9 spd systems.

    I have SKS fenders on and had no problem putting them on. I picked them up at the shop where I bought my bike, I checked the price and I paid twenty bucks for them.

    I got my 2006 T2000 last year when it first came out for $1499.00. I thought it was much better than the T800 due to the DT TK 7.1 rimes with DT Swiss competition spokes, and if I remember right it had the better bottom bracket too.
    Yes the fork doesn't give at all but it will grow on ya, all in all I think I got a great touring bike thats going to out last me and I'm sure my grandson too.
