Disc specific aero for rack for tour?

Hi, I need some help here. I'm gonna be doing a 430 mile tour this summer with my Jamis Nova Sport but I'm having lots of trouble with finding a front rack that will work with an aero style, disc fork with no brazons. I have been looking for some kind of aero adapter clamp and could only find this, http://www.biketiresdirect.com/produ...r-fork-adapter. Would I be able to use this adapter for any disc specific front rack? How careful should I be with using the right fitting clamp? Are there any good DIY ideas out there? And any good front rack recommendations? I was thinking about the Sherpa but would like to know if Tubus makes a front rack for disc breaks.

It works well, but not sure how it is with disc brakes.
