Old Man Moutain makes some racks that mount to your axle, taking the weight off your frame. My friend used one of their front racks on his mountain bike for a 6-day trip we took together, and was very satisfied with the rack. That way you can use whatever panniers you want, and it keeps the weight lower, which should be better for handling.
