Disc-compatible low-rider rack?

Can anyone recommend a low-rider pannier rack that will work nicely on a Co-Motion with F&R discs and no canti/v-brake bosses? It's hard to tell from web-site photos whether a given rack will conflict with the caliper on our 26" wheel PeriScope triple, so any first-hand experience would be appreciated. Light-duty is OK; we just need a place to stash extra clothes and/or a picnic lunch.

TIA -- Dave

I installed a old man mountain sherpa rack on our periscope tandem for the same purpose and it works great. You can order directly from co-motion - you will probably need extra long supports that they can provide, and some different hardware to connect to the braze ons.

Do you want the rack for the front or the rear?

Sorry for the confusion. To me, low rider = front, fork mount rack.
