I am pondering the same question w/ my LHT. Having a hard time spending $400 on couplings when the frame cost that much. However the alternative, a custom bike w/ couplings, is out of the question.
Whatever it's worth, Bilenky has the best price for adding couplings and have done more retrofits than anyone else. If I decide to do it, they will be get the job. When I called last week, they had just done a Surly.
I have never heard anything negative about adding couplings. The only thing is, is that it will void your frame warranty but with Surly, that's only 5 years anyway.
Let us know what you do and how it turns out.
