    I don't know what my touring/commuter weighs, but I know it's heavy. Anyway, I tend to pack heavy when I tour, so it's not an issue.

    My bike is 32 lbs empty and I started taking a trailer on my commute in order to raise the weight preparing for my tour. Can't say it is light.

    If I was fitter, and a lightweight like my bike, yes I would be flying, but I'm usually just happy to get from A to B

    My tourer is also my commuter. I don't think I've ever had it naked. I know I weighed in just before my Colorado to KC ride and came up with 95 lbs fully loaded. It rode like a dream.....

    This is encouraging. I've been considering replacing my hybrid with a LHT, and, while I never really worry about weight in general, I was concerned that I'd be in for a shock when I replaced my aluminum frame with good, old-fashioned steel, so I just weighed my commuter: with racks, fenders, and a couple of small tools hooked on (multi-tool, headlight, battery, pump) it came in at 38 lbs. So maybe switching to a touring bike won't be the shock to my system I was expecting.

    50cm Jamis Aurora with racks, pedals, cages but no bags, bottles, lights: 29 lbs.

    Bontrager Maverick rims on Ultegra hubs, Ultegra crank, LX/105, Salsa Short & Shallow with bar-cons, Vittoria Randonneur Pro 35/37c tires, Axiom Journey racks, etc.

    The Soma Double Cross comes in 5 lbs. lighter with Open Pros, 32c Randonneur Pros, no front rack(s), and a lighter duty rear rack but I don't feel as though it can handle more than a 30 lb. load.
