Cannondale touring bikes are the holy grail find as far as I'm concerned, especially the ones with cantilever brake mounts. Yours has caliper mounts, but its still an epic bike.

These have 1" quill headsets and stems, freewheel hubs, fit wide tires and fenders, have comfortable geometry, and are lighter and stronger than a Rivendell frame. They climb like a mountain goat and will outsprint anything steel. They come with nice steel forks, but I'd always upgrade them to a custom steel fork (Waltworks) for the cyclist and touring load to save weight or gain strength.

I'm always looking for Cannondale ST touring bikes in the 27" size if anyone has any leads.
