    Yep. Already placed my order for a 60cm LHT 26". Delivery date around mid December. I have one in 700c too but wanted to do more off road touring. Can't wait for the new one to arrive.

    I have a custom 2006 Zinn magnesium frame road bike set up for triathlon and a big semi-custom touring bike, the frame of which is a 1983 Apollo Prestige XL.

    It's about time. I'm sick of bike manufacturers picking aesthetics over practicality. If you've got a tall bike it's going to look funny anyways so might as well not look funnier on the side of the road or trail with a broken wheel.

    Now if they'd only make the frame in 26" I'd be in freakin' BIZNIZ
