Official lowrider with discs selection


So, I have done some searching and read many a thread about disc brakes and racks and how people have finagled them to work with different selections of spacers and longer screws blah blah.

I am curious if there is a definite low rider rack choice that works really well with mid-blade eyelets and dropout eyelets while still getting around the caliper? I like the looks of the tubus racks and their low weight and high praise and I also like the look of blackburn's new rack which seems to be able to mount on anything but not a lot of press I can find on it outside of mountain bike usage? If it is a "you just have to make it work type of thing" I understand and this is just me making that final clarification.

I am having a bike built by Lundbeck Cycles that will serve both cyclocross and light/rando touring duties which is what I am searching for here.

Thanks for the help and maybe we can create like a catalog of what the current and ongoing options are in the new age world of disc brakes.

I use a Tubus Tara on a Raleigh Sojourn (which has disc brakes), and the rack doesn't interfere with the caliper at all. Attaching fenders has been the problem, and I eventually just used gaffer tape to secure the fender stay to the rack.

My '04 Koga Miyata WTR has both disc mounts on the fork and Rim brake Bosses ,

The '03 came with Disc brakes , the '04 has Magura HS33 hydraulic rim brakes ..

Both used the same Tubus Ergo Chromoly steel racks .. & Logo Rear Rack.

the rack is attached to the frame & fork, the mudguard struts attach to the Racks ..

another bike .. Bruce Gordon's racks the fitting to the standard Steel Eyelet, no issues

Where the disc is mounted is another variable ..
