Bike rack with no braze-ons or eyelets?

I know this sort of question has been asked before on here, but; I have a GT Series 4 road bike (http://www.gtbicycles.com/pavement/c...CAN&brand=pave) with no braze-ons for the top of a rack, and no eyelets on the drop-outs for the bottom of a rack. I have been using a seat-post rack, which works for light loads, but my MEC seat-post rack fell apart on me yesterday, so I've been evaluating my options.

Has anyone had success mounting a rack with P-clamps on both the top and bottom of the seat-stays (mounting a rack with just four P-clamps attaching it to the bike)? Am I asking for trouble here? Should I just go pick up another seat post rack?
