I'm thinking about purchasing a touring bike. I'm leaning towards either a Trek 520, a Cannondale T800 or a Cannondale T2000.
My wife has a T800 mid-size frame (she's about 5'8") and it weighs approx 28 pounds with a rack on it. Does anyone know the approximate or relative weights of the Trek 520 and T2000? I'm not too hung up on the weight of the bike, but I'm curious to know what their relative weights are. Are the aluminum framed Cannondales significantly lighter than the steel framed Trek?
I would be shopping for a larger frame bike than my wife's (I'm about 6" taller than my wife).
Thanks in advance.
