I'd look for one of the Blackburn low rider knock offs at nashbar,
then have a new hoop modified, to not stick up so far, above the wheel
given it is made to fit on the eyelet of 700c wheels
the bottom of the bag will be 3.5" lower than if on the bigger wheel,
but it's not that much ,their U bolt mounting scheme is pretty good,
if you put it together right.
I have one of bike friday's bikes with their rack.. the top rear mounting point
is at the same height on the back of fork , as the V brake boss.. something clever
could be fabricated to use the V brake mounting bolt, and, say an L shaped bracket,
to give you a place to bolt that part down..
if you don't have a V brake boss set as well as the Disc mounts,
a P clamp and spacers will do .
