Syncros made one as well. I have a 1" one, but it's threadless. I'm trying to decide which bike to use it on.
I had a NOS 1" quill Syncros, but I sold it on eBay to some guy in Europe for $120.

Just had a look. Nothing on eBay for the Syncros.

The Evol is on there, but the shortest is a 95mm.

I saw a LHT at a local store and it lets us know why bikes like the Miyata 1000's are getting top dollar. Some may disagree but the Miyata 1000 simply blows the LHT out of the water.

The LHT is one of the most boring bikes I've seen. It does absolutely nothing for me. Plus, they already lost my business (as has Rivendell) by telling me I have to have 26" wheels. If I wanted a 26" wheeled touring bike, I'd put drop bars on an old mountain bike.

26" wheels? What a joke.

I'm tall enough to get the 58cm, so the wheel size isn't an issue. It's a style thing, the LHT is great, totally functional and butt ugly. I am just testing the waters for something else. I've checked the Bob Jackson out, nice look, but for the price I could buy a nice vintage frame and have a few bucks left. EBay is short any touring frames right now, so I tried here. If I could ride advice or comments I'd be set, but no offense, come with a trade offer or go to the touring forum to talk about the merits of the LHT. I've done my homework, I'm a well informed shopper. I don't need my hand held.

It's the new standard worldwide for serious loaded touring, because 26" tires are ubiquitous, and they are the only size available in some far reaching locales.

Tommaso SLX frame and forks

Up for trade is my 62cm c-c (60 tt) Tommaso SLX. I really don't want to part with it but I have, literally, run out of hooks. These frames were sold by Ten Speed Drive Imports in Marina Del Rey, CA. The frames were OEM's from top Italian builders and brought to the US for paint. This one is made of SLX tubing and is in excellent shape. They are very fine frames.

The frame has been repainted (not by me) in the Irish colors (or is it Italian?) and is in great shape. The paint looks wet. There are a few surface scratches but no scratches into the paint.

PM if you are interested - we can work out a deal. This is a steel is real deal.

Note: only the frame and fork is for trade/sale.

Also have a look at Mercian (http://www.merciancycles.co.uk/frame_king_mercia.asp) The King of Mercia is their top touring frame, and probably the top contender for me until I started doing some work for a well-known custom framebuilder here in Philly. With the current exchange rate, that L515 works out to be $737, not too shabby.

Still, one day I'll own a Mercian...they're beautiful bikes with one hell of a heritage.

,you should realize how closely mtb and touring bikes are... especially one made for heavy fully loaded touring. I do agree though that a myiata 1000 is a better bike (and would most proabably have cost a bit more then a surly new adjusted for inflation), but to discount entire company's lineup because they adjust the wheel size on a smaller frame is completely ridiculous. To maintain proper geomtetry/handling/toe overlap etc... using differing wheel sizes makes perfect sense. Not doing so, means you have your priorities off.

No it isn't. It is a make or break point for me. That is what I WANT....a 700c touring bike in 53/54cm. Lots of other companies make them, so I won't be TOLD what I'm going to ride. I ride 700c road bikes. Are you honestly going to tell me that a touring bike has a steeper headtube angle than a road bike? No, it's a more relaxed headtube angle - putting the front wheel well out of the way of my toes.

My priorities are that I want what I want, and I won't settle for something that I don't want. How is that "off"?

I've done that before. It's quite a fun ride but I wouldn't want to ride long distances on it. I really like my Gran Turismo. I put on 8 speed hybrid wheels and 40c tires on it. It still moves as quickly as most of my skinny tired bikes, and rides like a beach cruiser. Kind of the same idea but with larger rims. It seems to make all the difference for me.,,,,BD

touring bike

this has turned into a kinda weird thread. Platypius was looking to buy a smallish touring bike or frame as i understand it. Yet he has been getting all kinds of opinions as to what he should do, what he should bye and i don't think he was asking for that. He just wants what he wants period. Has somebody got something or not that he wants, easy yes.

i have a panasonic touring deluxe frame in your size. canti brakes, fender and rack eyelets front and rear. no low rider mounts, though (p clamps are supposed to be stronger anyway, right?). cosmetically it's pretty beat, but structurally it seems to be all there. i'll take some pics if you're interested.
