I can't find anything on it. I realize, it won't make a lot of difference, when racked up and loaded down with gear and food. But it might make some difference when I throw on some cyclocross tires and hit some of the old dirt roads around here just for fun.

Probably a bit less. My T800 weighs in around 26-27 naked (without bags but with front rack)

Is that their (cannondale's) official weight? The page said they didn't list weights when I last looked.

My 2006 T2000 (size JUMBO) with tubus racks, fenders, and 32mm marathons weighs about 33 pounds. It can carry ten times that (including me) before I notice anything adverse.

Thank you. Neither touring bike manufacturers, or my girlfriends, seem to like to discuss their weight.

It was a review site that weighed the bike. Cannondale you're correct won't advertise weights.
