drilling is the best option but not your only one. on many bikes you can install the front (long stud) brake on the back with the concave washers and nut from your old brakes. then mount the rear brake on the front using the recessed nut placed inside
the fork crown/steerer or
use a long recessed nut made for a carbon fork in the traditional manner.
i have done all three of the above options with great success.
due to the tight area behind the rear triangle, this is what i would do:
use the front brake on the back with the concave washers and a nut
drill the back of the fork out for a recessed nut and mount the rear brake on the fork with a long recessed nut. you may have to cut the nut to the "perfect" length.
