If you want the Cross Check for more of a daily rider that you can also take on tours, it's not worth the trouble of a different fork. You can rig up a front rack to work without braze-ons without much trouble.

Yeah, you are probably right. I would be all about the LHT if it had horizontal dropouts. I noticed that tubus has hardware for some of their front racks to be mounted to a fork without both eyelets, so I'll probably just do that.
