I owned a Varsity for many years, into my early 20's. As was said previously, it wasn't that great of a bike even at the time. I recall that it weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of 41lbs. It was never terribly comfortable, and IMHO the gearing is all wrong for touring/commuting etc. Given a choice, I would pick practically any hybrid or mountain bike over the Varsity for just about touring or commuting application. Can you tell that I never bonded with my Varsity? LOL.
