If Surly Cross Check is on the list, how about Soma Double Cross?
Just a little suggestion to bring this into the 21st century :) how do you feel about this being a google doc? I feel like that would be more useful

I think the Moulton would be a worthy brand for your list. Course I'm biased having owned one for many a year.
They are toured all over the world successfully though and I think most come from the factory as "separable" so they break down for easy shipping. I'm not sure if a particular model is needed as all of their models are toured with from the budget to their top of the line versions. http://www.moultonbicycles.co.uk/features.html
It's all Asian contract Export and US brands.. Nothing from 'across the Pond' and Europe.
Moultons are a start..

Does any one still have this file? When I go to the download site, it says the file has been removed. Has it been updated or moved?
^^^ I get a message "Download not available

Anyone know where it went?
I'm having the same problem too. I think the file just expired off the hosting website...it would be easy for someone who has it to just reupload it or convert over to Google Docs (which I too prefer).
My suggestion is the Habanero's touring bike with disc brakes. Seems pretty stout, and it looks like they'd substitute any component you like (XT derailleur for example).
I just saw the last posts here and realized I had the file, I uploaded the original file to google docs, feel free to use it!

I recently ordered a KHS TR-101 expecting the black 2013 model off the KHS website. I ended up with this instead, I imagine this is the 2014 model, though I can't find anything to verify it up against. Either way they changed some of the parts up, and overall it looks nicer than the 2013 model posted on the website but it looks like they downgraded the pedals from a cheaper SPD M505 to some toe clips, ditched the tail light, changed the crankset to something shimano Octalink... switched from a Tiagra to a Alivio front derailleur and swapped the drop bars to bars with a shallower drop. The saddle feels like a pillow wrapped in Naugahyde and is something that would suit a beach cruiser. That said, the bike has a comfortable ride and is equipped with all the mounts you need for racks, though it is one bottle cage short. I paid 859 USD for the bike from LBS since this bike was part of their first order from KHS.
Why does this have to be in file format? It's a cool idea but very lofty if the plan is to represent every production touring bike out there, in the world. Go for it but it seems like a quarter of the factory built bikes found in The Loaded Touring Bike Photo Gallery aren't represented. Anyway, why not simply list all of the bikes and the brand links within the first post of this thread? If someone wanted it for offline use they could simple copy & paste, to whatever.
…and for those looking at such a list for possibilities, remember: Just because builder X builds a bike, designating it as a "touring bike", doesn't inherently mean that it's any better for touring than a bike you may already own which isn't called a "touring bike" by the builder. There are so many cross bikes, town bikes, mountain bikes, etc. which would be outstanding, all dependent upon what the rider is looking for.
I was looking forward to seeing this list, but got the dreaded "404 - File Not Found"...
