I a looking for a touring frame to set up as a touring/commuting/rain/rando bike. I would prefer to buy an older(80's 90s') bike that i could set up with 32mm+ tires and fender/ rack. I see a ton of frames available or ebay and craigslist, but dont know what to look for. I ride a 58cm to 60cm road frame now. Can you guys recommend me a frame?

Surly LHT

Thanks for the replies. I have a line on a stock Surly LHT for about $550. I want to get but want to know if they keep their resale value. One of my goals is to ride as many frame/bikes as possible to get a better understanding of geometry, and ride as I am going to build my own custom Do-All every day bike. My other option would be my friends Rivendell prototype frame ($750-$1000). What do you guys think?
