    Rear rack to fit 29 x 2.35 big apples

    I was looking for suggestions on what rack to run on the rear of my 29er that is currently set up with Schwalbe 29x2.35 big apples. My 29er is set up for commuting, but does not have any eyelets for a rack. I'd really like to stay away from the seatpost mounted racks that don't attach to the frame. I've seen that when these are loaded they can swing from side to side or work their way loose.

    I figured I'd have to use p-clips in order to make the rack work. I'm just hoping someone has some experience setting up a rack of this type that can steer me in the right direction. Planet bike has a 29er rear rack, but I haven't seen any pictures or threads of people setting these up on frames without eyelets (I may just not have been able to find them). If it matters I have disc brakes and a geared steel frame. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I am using Bor Yueh rack for 20EUR on On One Inbred 29er. Fits nicely since disc brake is on chain tube.

    Removed spring clamp part ... also need to cut off small peace of bottom holder to fit my chain tug .

    Clearance is good and rear part of rack is neatly bended - perfect for holding with a hand.
