I have had my Surly LHT for five years and it has not missed a beat. It carries loads with comfort on reasonable roads. It doesn't do so well on single track when loaded. I was apprehensive about bar-end shifters but now understand why they are superior to STI for touring. They are bulletproof, can be used in friction mode and allow a handlebar bag. I like STI on my road bike but, for touring, I will happily keep the bar-end shifters on the LHT.
The Tout Terrain sure is a beautiful bike if you can afford it. But, I have four bikes and spending that much on one bike just cannot be justified unless I was going to pack my whole life into panniers and tour the world.
The Surly Ogre is very interesting and I would love to try one. Perhaps a future purchase.
Thanks for the review. They are three bikes anybody should be happy to own.
