Just do the Giant Loop and forget about the racks.

highly doubt these giant thingies are as cheap and easy to handle as my panniers are
a set of waterproof click style bicycle panniers - mine are Ortlieb backrollers off ebay
plus $5 material and 5 minutes of welding the rack, bolt on and you have a very light weight,
save, quick connect luggage system
you commute on 2 wheels?
'click' and your luggage is on, 100mph tested,
bags not full? zip-zip panniers synche down snug
downpour? no problem at all
at your destination 'click' you're ready to go

It just depends what you want to do with the luggage. If you want to ride it like a dirt bike the giant loop products work great. You are right they are not cheap but are built to last and can easily be moved from bike to bike.
