+1 for the OMM axle-mounted racks. Excellent customer service, high quality product. And I recommend Arkel panniers t-28s for the size you want. I use them primarily for commuting and front panniers. Not sure what you are carrying, but that's not a lot of room. I also have the t-42s, and I love those.
