Okay, here's the gig:
I'm about to convince The Wife a new touring bike is the way to go. She knows how grossly inadequate my life insurance is, so getting a new bike is just the ticket to keep my ticker tickin'
I had my heart set on the Cannondale T2, but I've seen a lot here and on other sites singing the praises of the Surly LHT.
So....besides the obvious of saving $300 for the Surly, what are the pros and cons of the two? Is the weight of the Surly that much more than the Cannondale to make a noticable difference?
