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.

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
