Here is where Surly mentions facing rear disc brake mounts in their blog section. Maybe this is what spambait11 was referring to, however they do not mention it being a "problem".

I'm not familiar with the Shimano disc calipers - do they have some method for adjusting the position of the caliper relative to the mounting bolts? I know the Avid calipers have quite a lot of movement to allow you to get the caliper parallel to the rotor.
