That would have been one of the versions of the Raven or the Nomad, I have the Nomad Mk II, also have a Sherpa which is a Thorn derailleur bike. I like the Rohloff for some kinds of trips, derailleur bikes for some others. I bought the Sherpa frame and fork used from someone in Canada that had bought a size that did not work well for him. Bought the Nomad frame and fork new off of their website. Most of my touring has been on one of those two bikes.
