Thanks for the complement.
I have only ridden the canti Sam twice. Obviously the canti Sam is lighter. 
I don't plan on adding any more accessories to the Canti Sam.
I still have the double top tube Sam and it's has everything..front & back 
racks,basket  ,Fenders, Dyno hub, fr.& rear lights.Much heavier.
The canti Sam is set up exactly like the double top tube as far as 
measurements go and seems more responsive.The canti Sam has 44mm tires the 
dbl top tube has 38mm.
They both are comfortable to ride. 
I'll post more later.
You will love your Sam.It will serve you nicely however you want to set it 
If you have questions ask away.
