    Double Cross DC came to my mind first, too.

    It looks like a pretty short wheelbase. Aren't longer wheelbase bikes better on the road? I'm just asking, as my trusty ride is a GT Xizang titanium mountain bike with Marathon Plus 26x1.5 tires and a solid rear rack.

    If you want longer wheelbase than the DC you should probably be looking at touring frames.
