Sorry didn't state what bike
Giant xtc 1

Brother in law had a seat post rack seemed to work ok
Was thinking about the full pannier rack

P clips might work in combo with a seatpost adaptor. You might still need a disc specific rack to get around the rear brake, you'll need to work that out as you look at the bike, preferrably with a rack in your hand at the same time.

Beam rack you know about and as mentioned above, the bikepacking option. Alpkit do a load of bikepacking stuff.

Er, isn't the frame carbon?

I'm assuming that's what 'composite' means in Giant speak.

If so, you need to be very careful clamping things on the seat stays.

The tubes may flex inwards, and in any case are not designed to take a heavy downward force at one point.
