steel rear rack inquiry...

I need help or advice on purchasing a rear rack for my Trek 920. I've had two Bontrager rear (aluminum) racks that have both cracked in the same spot. I need to ****** upgrade to steel. My trek 920 does not have eyelets... Does anyone know for sure if a Surly rear rack would work? don't think the Surly rear disc rack would work cause no eyelets. Or does anyone have any advice on a company that would make custom steel rack to fit my bike? Thanks for taking the time to read this and help!

You can always try a Tubus clamp set and go from there.

Where did they crack?

I wouldn’t get fixated on steel before determining the cause of the breaks. Old man Mountain racks might work.
