You’re waiting until spring to buy a touring bike? Pansy.
Going into stock as we speak (in the US of A) are Blue Velvet (also known as Hill Street Blue and also just Blue) Long Haul Trucker complete bikes. We don't have many for this first go-round, but maybe it's just enough for you... and for the sit-tay.
The new 26" wheel version of the larger sizes are part of this deal. Not all sizes will be arriving (woe be on you 60cm riders), but most will. They are cool. Trust me, I have one. Does it look a little goofy? Goofy like a fox!

Call your local bike shop and make them order you one.
I dare you.
Here's a picture of the Nuge.
