Need help picking a lwb for riding the pch

A few years back I toured the west on my tour easy and loved it. I'm kicking around the idea of touring the pch in the spring and I need to buy another recumbent. I'm looking to stay with a lwb, I'd like disc brakes and wheels capable of taking pretty large tires. 2.0" would be ideal.

My only complaints about my TE were the side pull brakes were weak loaded on the mountains of utah. The front 20" tire was a weird size and I had to get one mailed to me when I tore a sidewall. I'm thinking dual 26" wheels would be nice or at least the more common 20" front tire.

I'm open to suggestions. It looks like rans sells a few lwb disc brake bikes but I'd like to see what some of my other options are.
