Thinking the even bigger issue will be the wheel/tire. your looking at putting a lot of additional weight on a light weight rear and skinny tire, neither will hold up long, or be nice to ride for any distance.
A carradice bag can do the job. They're not made too far from where you live.

Heel strike will be a potential issue with any pannier set up given the short chain stays.

The seatpost is carbon. I wouldn't want to attach a clamp to that though. An aluminum seatpost would work better.
