I have a Waterford Adventure cycle with 26" wheels that is great for touring. It was pricey, but it fits me like a glove, and I can ride it comfortably for hours. Besides the fit, another great thing about it is its ability to accommodate a wide range of wheel widths, plus fenders. Steel frame, long wheelbase, plenty of braze-ons for racks, etc, and the sweetest paint job.
I used to ride a Terry also, 750c rear wheel and 24" up front. It too was comfortable, but I got tired of having to keep two sizes of everything on hand, plus it would only accommodate a very limited range of wheel widths.
Love my Waterford!
