I officially eleveate you from the status of smarty pants to Genius.

Managed to get a new seat clamp which allows for the pannier rack. Fits lovely and does the job brilliantly

Ta muchly :D

    That rack is too big for your bike. The only reasonable solution is to buy a new bike (preferably custom build) to fit the rack. Problem solved.

    put it this way, I am not buying a new rack and there is no way I can afford to go custom made

    It does the job and is now very stable. I could lower it down onto the lower lugs, but to be honest I perfer that I have plenty of clearence between the rack and frame.

    Part of the problem is my bike is a smallish frame so rack would look odd on it anyway.

    You could also donate the rack to the Build Crankycrank A Bike charity. Or just keep it. It should be fine. :wink:
