I just got a brand new thorn Nomad. Its very comfortable, rides well, and the workmanship looks high quality, but i haven't had a chance to tour on it yet. A guy there named Grant was very helpful and prompt in answering all my email questions.
If you order one, i recommend you try out a similar bike that has the exact same measurements so you know it'll fit right. I'd hate to have to ship a bike all the way back to England.
You'll have to cut off the excess length for the front fork, which is not a big deal at the bike shop. They do that to help guarantee a good fit.
