IIRC, the Long Haul Trucker has the 26" option and as a tourer has midfork eyelets. However, it probably is 1 1/8" but it doesn't hurt to ask.
Otherwise, you'll have to plunder another bike with those characteristics- which is a chore to find them.
The easier solution is to get a different rack that mounts either with P clamps or canti bosses.
