Rim Brake (rear) for Surly Disc Trucker

I want to put a Copenhagen wheel on my disc trucker but I'm not sure what to do about the rear brake since there are no mounting studs on the seat stays.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Is there a hole on the bridge to mount a caliper brake?

Thanks everyone. There is a hole in the bridge for a caliper. Hadn't thought of that!
