human33, In these parts the older non cantilever braked Cannondale ST has become fairly popular lately, more so as a non touring road bike. The major touring issue for the T400 is the 27" wheels. Changing to a 700C wheelset and long reach calipers is a pretty common modification. The cable housing guides along the top tube can be fragile and, if broken difficult to find replacements.

I admit that I'm partial to Cannondale's road bikes and I have a '95 Cannondale touring bike I built so I'd recommend the T400, but still I tried to list any issues you may encounter with it. You can go to the C&V forum, search for rccardr and see the STs that he's rebuilt for more info.

Of course pick the bike that fits you best.
