    Tourers with 26" wheels

    Are there any others besides the LHT, Thorn Sherpa, Novara safari and Co Motions's fabulous and fabulously expensive Pangea?
    When I was young I prayed to God for a new bike. Then I figured out God didn't work that way, so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness.

    I know it's obvious but any modern or older mountain bike frame will make use of 26" wheels and often the older MTB frames have a similar geometry to the LHT and other "real touring" bikes.
