So I would like to build a long haul trucker to carry my gear around from firehouse to firehouse, also would like to find some jones h bars as well. My firehouse brothers think I'm batty for riding my bike but it's a way of life for me. Thank you

beer pal, I bought a cheap set of 650b wheelset from a seller on eBay for my commuter two years ago, it's still running strong. Granted, I am not transporting Bobby the Hippo or Barney the Dino so take that with a grain of salt.

As for the handlebar, I got this. It's no Jones but it serves what I need.

Edit: Just saw your post again, you are looking for disc-ready...in that case, our friend Velomine have some.

Thank you for the link, excuse my ignorance but what size wheelset would offer me the biggest tire clearance on the lht frame? 26 or 650b? I'm leaning more towards 26

Is your LHT designed for 26 inch wheel?

Mine is. I am using Schwalbe Big Apple 26x2.35 and I never found it lacking when I took it on a self-supported tour. It must have weighed at least 80+ pounds fully loaded front and back...and you add the fatso riding it (me!) - got to be heaaaaaavy.
