ok so what's the diff? shorter stays? will they work (well... I know almost anything can be made to work) on road/touring/700c bikes (with mounts)?

It probably has a different name.

There are disc-brake specific racks, built to get around one's brake caliper. Not entirely necessary, but it's out there.

Could be that.

What rack are you wondering about?

I'm surprised that they're making racks like that. There's no appreciable advantage to having different sizes, as 26" tires (especially 2.1 and up) are pretty dang close to 700c in diameter, unless you run 29ers. Also, eyelet position varies enough to make the difference even smaller. There might be a difference, but I think Blackburn is splitting hairs here.
