One does NOT have to spend $300-400+ on a tent to get something that will last, be dry, easy to set up, and small enough to pack well on a bike. Don't drink that kool-aid. Shop closeouts, shop www.TheFind.com, Amazon, etc. Suggest using a blanket on your living room floor folded to the dimensions of what you are considering for a 2 up tent. Lay down on it with your sleeping bag, next to your bunk mate. You will get a decent idea of footprint and fit for 2 people. Works for me. Good luck.
