ogre accessorizing towards touring

A few changes to the ogre over the last several months:
- 165mm crank arms replace 180s: ogre has lower bb than mary does; many less pedal strikes
- Brooks Flyer: After getting my backside pounded by the Dakota five-o, I opted for some old school suspension.
- JandD rear rack and bag: carrying additional layers of clothes, cable, ulock
- Relevate Designs frame bag: another accessory towards bike touring

Surly ECR or Krampus or Ogre or Troll? This article and links to others describe their different attributes and functionality. Reading these got me more focused on bike touring. My next accessory I would like to get is a Jones Loop Bar.
