Without question the only touring bike I have ridden over 60cm in size with burdened with 40-50 lbs of gear that performed like a road bike was the old Cannondale Touring (This bike has been mentioned in an earlier post). They were magically competent loaded touring rigs.

Cannondale does have a touring model available now. It has updated tubing and design along with disc brakes. Rides like a road bike unloaded for sure. Have yet to load one up with gear, but I suspect it will do just fine. If you can find a vintage Cdale Touring frame in your size do consider it as they really were great bikes out on the road with gear.
