ways to mount a rack to a MTB? large pannier recomendations?

i'm thinking of getting a rack that can hold at least 90lbs (i don't know how much my groceries weight but it's gotta be less than 90lbs, so there!)(recomendations for something cheaper than a tubus cargo would be appreciated), and mounting it on my MTB which has no rack mounts. is there any way to do this reliably?


also. for 65 or more litre rear panniers, is there anything other than the axiom champlain? anything better?

90lbs on a rack with a bike that doesn't have any attachment points? Heck, I don't even think the Jandd expedition is rated for 90lbs and that thing is a tank.

Maybe you can weld it on.

OMM racks work with out mounts, but are only rated to 40-50 lbs.

A Blackburn Rack is also very good (but also not cheap). I had quite often more than 40 kg on the rack. Once the screw broke and not the rack. Last year a car bumped into the rack - the frame was destroyed and the rack is still fine. My Blackburn rack celebrates this year his 20th anniversary.
