Front rack for CF

I've been looking for a front rack that I can use with a corbon fiber fork and can't seem to find any. Would any of you happen to know where I could pick one up. I've read, where the CF fork is strong enough, but I know you can't drill holes in it. Maybe something from the headset to the axel or something like that. Thanks George.

'trad', old skool- Bor Yueh front rack still available- front racks mount from dual eyleted front fork and brake thrubolt in fork crown. doubt your CF fork has dual eyelets.

A brake boss front rack mounts on canti bosses and brake thrubolt. does your fork have cantis or calipers?

My front fork has calipers as I have disk brakes. If nothing else I'll just get a larger handlebar bag. I don't have much room left on my handlebars now though. I have flatbars with a compass, light, computer and that doen't leave much room for the handlebar bags bracket. Thanks again, George
