    Which Pannier Rack for my 29er with Disks?

    Sorry, folks. I've had a terrible time trying to figure out where this thread should go.

    I have a new 29er (Norco Charger 9.1) with disk brakes. I'm not sure if I need to get a disk specific pannier rack or not.



    My rear calipers are post mounted and recessed (or rather, that part of the frame is very thick, which makes the calipers appear recessed).



    The pencil is sticking out of the hole for the panniers.

    It looks to me that brake clearance for the pannier rack, as long as the legs are perpendicular to the ground should be okay with a non-disk specific rack. Due to the angle I held the bike at when I took the photo, it looks like there is more clearance than there actually is: the clearance between the calipers and the rack leg would be around 1-2mm.

    But, I'm not sure if the extra frame thickness will affect anything. Should I opt for a disk specific pannier rack? Would 1-2mm clearance be enough?

    Edit: Sorry. I can't figure out how to delete the extra image attachment (below) in this post.
