Bare with me, I'm a noob at this...

I'm looking to buy a touring bike, or a touring frame and build it up to the spec I want.

I only have a couple of requirements..

Fully hydraulic disc brakes or mechanical operated hydraulic brakes

If I buy a frame, then I would like to buy it from a company that doesn't just specialise in frames, but also sell complete bikes. The frame has to accept the brakes mentioned above.

Frame and forks to be steel.

No more than £700 for a frame.

What do people think of the Ridgeback Panorama Deluxe Frameset? I like the Ridgeback tourers but none of them have disc brakes but the frameset has the ability to add them. Also, why do the specs for the frameset list things like spokes, bottom brackets and rims? :? :?
