The Troll Fork is the same fork included with the 2nd generation Surly Troll frameset or complete bike that is designed for a non-suspension corrected rigid fork.
The Troll is designed to be a workhorse and the fork shares a lot of the same features that make the frame so great. What to run rim brakes? The Troll Fork will do it along with tabs disc brakes which is a rare feature on modern forks.
With the Troll being in the touring line-up for Surly you know it has to be able to run racks and it does. Surly includes upper, mid and lower braze-ons and with 3-bolt Anything Cage mounts. The lower braze-ons are placed so that they do not interfere with the disc caliper.
Surly's long-standing motto is FFF (Fatties Fit Fine) so you should expect this fork to fit larger tires, but what is a big tire for a touring bike? 2.5" like the Surly ExtraTerrestrial sure it will fit, in fact, you can run a tire as large as a 26x3.0" on 50mm rims.
