Cannondale suggests that their "Sport Road" bikes (the SR800 and SR500) are suitable for light touring and can take racks and fenders. Has anyone used one of these bikes for Touring? How robust are they? Are there other "light" touring alternatives to a full on Tourer (I assume the Bianchi Volpe is one). Would one of these bikes be a better choice for someone who never plans to do a self supported tour.
One thing I liked about the bike was the low bottom bracket (lower than the T800/T2000). I am not sure how low the Bianchi's is since they don't seem to publish that information.
