Fitting Rack on Specialized Sirrus

I tries to fit Blackburn (Expedition II, I think) that is
on my old MTB onto my new Specialized Sirrus.

The eyelets by the axle are so far apart (much further than
my MTB) I had to stretch the bottom ends of the rack more
than an inch more than I had to on the MTB in order to reach.
Just doesn't look like healthy thing to do, to stretch that much.

Plus there is a slight bump just above the eyelets so it looks like
it will need longer bolts than I have.

Can anyone recommend some other models that will work better or
some solution w/ the current rack?

Thank you.

Try a Trek Interchange rack. It's the only rack I didn't have to "bend" to make the legs space wide enough for the rear eyelets. Good looking, too.
