Tourers with 26" wheels

Are there any others besides the LHT, Thorn Sherpa, Novara safari and Co Motions's fabulous and fabulously expensive Pangea?

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.
