Rack Options

I have a Vision Metro CLWB, and would like to put a rear rack on it, but it has rear suspension. Is there an after market rack that will fit this. There seems to be nowhere on the frame to mount it too. Anyone ever attached a rack to this kind of bike or have any suggestions?

I found I could carry whatever I needed in the briefcase type over the seat bags.

I have one of them, but was looking for another option for when I want to do any light touring. I already have panniers but none of my racks will fit.

I have tried numerous ways to try and attach a rear rack. I had to really bend the support arms that attach to the bike down to fit into the two openings, above the brake bridge. I thought it would work until I put my weight on the bike and the supports broke. There has to be a better way, there is no where to attach the support arm brackets to the bike, anyone have an idea I haven't thought of yet, or another way to attach the rack.

I have been thinking about getting one of those extra large bags that attach to the seat, but haven't found a supplier as Vision is now out of business. Would one from Hostel Shoppe that fits the Volae or Rans fit a Vision seat?
