Bike rack for Specialized Hardrock 29 Disc

Hi All,
Just bought a new Specialized Hardrock with 29s and disc brakes. My old rack won't fit, so I'm looking for a new one. My bike is a medium frame (17.5). Any suggestions?

Thanks Windchaser, I was thinking the same thing, then I was left with another choice:
-A frame?
-E frame?
-V frame?
It took me a while to realize they were talking about the rack frame and not the bike frame.

There are disc-compatible racks you could look at, for example:

Topeak makes a few:

Your Specialized dealer have suggestions?.. you can test fit them there..

Non disc rear racks can be spread wider with spacers, to clear the caliper on the right side..

They only had one in stock and it was a little more than I wanted to spend. I checked on some of the other suggestions and I'm liking the Planet Bike Versa Rack.
