I have Surly front and rear racks on my Surly CC. The front rack took a while to fit. It's super solid and appears that it could be fitted to almost any rigid fork but it does take a while. The thing is beefy, solid and heavy. The rear rack is also quite impressive and much easier too install. Still, knowing what I know now. I probably would go with a rear Tubus Cargo instead. The Tubus seems to be just as sturdy and a little less complicated to install which I think makes it more durable due to fewer parts. The nice thing about the Surly front rack is panniers can be installed tall or low and it has a huge platform. It should go on an LHT easier than my CC but do be patient. Oh, and the hardware it came with kept breaking. I emailed Surly and they were great and promptly sent me out some replacement hardware. For whatever reason the bolts kept crossthreading and it wasn't due to me being hamfisted or anything like that.
