26" Wheel Touring Specific Bikes - Suggestions

I am thinking about buying a 26" wheel touring bike and have been looking at the Novara Safari. Checking with REI the 20" frame has a stand over height for someone much taller than I. Maybe an 18" frame would fit, but there are none available.

Do any of you have experience with the Safari or can you recommend a touring specific frame / bike within the same price range?
