Very Nice.. i didn't even know Trek still made steel frames. What is the weight of the bike, without the luggage?

It was about 50 pounds, all loaded up. It wasnt too bad, with the mountain triple gearing, it was fun!

Cool!, did you participate in some kind of Trans-Am race, or did you do the cross-country trip on your own?
