Gear Talk / Re: Co-motion Americano vs Norwester Tour

How heavy is the Americano?

I do not know about full build.  But the "Comotion Bike Specifications" insert that was in the catalog I picked up today indicates that the following frame weights (they do not specify size):

Nor'wester:  3.8lbs
Nor'wester Tour:  3.85lbs
Americano: 4lbs

S+S couplings add 8oz.

I am actually looking at an Americano for myself after bouncing around the whole "will I use it for heavy touring" question, I would rather have the option than not.  I also like the idea of disc brakes (I have come to really like them on my mountain bike).

The only questions at this point are:

1)  What color?  (leaning towards Metallic Medium Blue)
2)  When to order?
