Blackburn Custom Eyelets to mount rack on bikes w/o dropout eyelets
No issue on mounting the top portion of the bike, I just need a solution for the bottom of the rack where there are no braze-ons near the dropouts. Anyone have suggestions or know where I can get the blackburn custom eyelets that are made for this exact issue?

If you have a lathe you can make your own. Also know that the Blackburn ones didn't fit all drops and the flange could interfere with the chain if clearances were too tight. Andy.
+1 On a tour a few years ago a friend had fitted his eyelet-less bike with a rack using P-clamps. The clamps did tend to slide down the seat stays until we stopped at a hardware store for a couple of small hose clamps and tightened them below the P-clamps. Problem solved.
