I find it hard to compare popular touring bikes because I could not easily find their standard weight.
Does anybody has this info?
Any idea how much the extra weight can affect performance? I would like number answer like "for 1kg extra weight you need 5% extra power on flats everything else being the same" etc. etc. This will help in deciding when to stop spending extra $$$ to reduce the weight of the bike.
I ask this because my Fuji Touring bike (at 27.75 Pounds advertised weight), although very comfy and nice, feels and rides slower than my road bike.
