I have a Randonee, and like it well enough. I've got about 1600 miles on it. Not even a flat tire. I would have loved to get a 520 from my LBS instead, but a 20% off coupon and my REI dividend made the Randonee about $600, which was too good of a deal to pass up.
Only issues are toe-fender strike, a little bit shortish chainstay for a tourer, and that no bottle will fit in the third cage (especially with fenders). So I watch my sharp turns, slide my panniers back, and go with two waters. Ta-da!
