Touring Forks

I am looking to do some touring with my Boardman 8.8 adv adventure bike. This will require adding carrying capacity to it, in addition to upgrading the wheels to more heavy duty ones.

I’m having a bit of trouble finding replacement forks that have the eyelets for racks/cages. Does anyone have a recommendations other than these surly forks?

Only requirements are disc brakes and cargo eyelets. Black or silver is preferred.

    People aren't fitting panniers as much any more. Look at the bike packing bags that Alpkit etc are doing. Huge saddlebag mounted on an exoframe and a frame bag and bar bag and you're good to go.
    More aero too. You might not need new forks.
