I also recommend looking at Axiom racks- - -they're well built and affordable. I bought a pair of Surly racks for my LHT and never installed them. . .way too bulky and heavy. Maybe if i was planning on hauling hundred pound bags of rice every day on a multi-year round-the-world trip. . .but for general use and touring? overkill. yes they are solid, but how much stuff are you really looking at hauling? They're more suited for a true working utiltiy bike hauling lots of heavy duty cargo. . .
I have axiom rear racks that were fine for a loaded tour last year. . .don't recall what front rack i ended with but it wasn't the Surly . . .

axiom rack dimensions vary

i don't have the specs at hand, but be aware that some of the Axiom racks are narrower than others- - -depending on use and what you're carrying, this can be a bit of an issue. But that said, I'm completely satisfied with mine- - -as noted before, they are very well made and affordable. A great value.
