Longbike Slipstream Front Rack?

I am trying to find a front rack that will fit my Longbike Slipstream. Someone out there must have done this before me. The old Blackburn does not seem to want to work because of the front disk brakes being in the way. Someone have a picture of rack on that 20 in. wheel?

Thanks for the help.

Slipstream front rack

Yep, done it mounted a rack to the front of both my Slipstream and Gulfstream (Same rack on both bikes) And how better to test it them load it up and head off on little Trans-Am?

The rack you want is offered by Rivendell, it's called Mark's Mini Rack. Quality? Made by Nitto, out lasted the bike frame Cheap? No, it's $88 bucks, but it fits and looks great! Like it was made for the bike! Well worth the money. Check it out at:

You may have to bend the legs a bit to clear the disk brake on your bike, but it should fit without too much bother.

Take a look at old man mountain racks. They were able to help me out with mine. I think the front was a sherpa rack. I had problems with the rear due to replacing the old 2 post Hayes hydraulic with a cable operated bb7 brake. It had S&S couplings and Hydraulic brakes!

www.arkel-od.com has a link to the racks.
