Lefty mounting on bike racks?

My brother-in-law just bought a new Cannondale with the Lefty which he really loves. One problem he can't mount it to his bike rack without having to dissassemble the disc brake, then remove the wheel, then put a "Fork-Up" on....etc. Real pain in the arse! BTW, he has a Draftmaster rack and wanted to know if anyone know if anyone makes a mount for the REAR wheel?

I was thinking to just get some spacers and a longer quick release. Has anyone tried mounting their bikes backwards in a fork mount? Does the rear derailleur cause problems?

Any help would be appreciated and Draftmaster was no help.

That's a tough one boomer. I guess that's one of the problems with the Lefty, it's putting it on a rack. I'm not sure you would be able to mount it backwards. Like you said the Derailleur might get in the way.

The only suggestion I have, which may not be the best one, is to sell the draftmaster and get a roof mounted rack that holds the bike by the crank arm.
