    recommend me a good locking trunk rack

    that's not too big and not too small. In fact, I prefer smaller than bigger. The ones I've seen are way too wide, too tall, and too long.

    I was thinking of using the soft material rack trunks that use velcro strips to secure it to the rack, but then thought that I'd have to remove it each time I lock the bike for fear of the bag getting stolen. Looks like the plastic or metal ones (do they make metals ones?) are bolted to the rack for addeed security. And they lock, to boot.

    Would love to find one that's about 12" long and 6-7" wide and maybe 6" high. Where can I find one?

    Well idk if you're going to find one that size, but the Saris Bones RS. It's a great rack! I love mine, so quick and easy to set up and break down.

    Haha, I meant a storage trunk that you put on the rear rack of the bike.

    Did a little search and I may try to make my own either using a wooden box or maybe ammo box. Dunno. Any suggestions?

    If you don't find one you like for the money you want to spend, how about bolting a little plastic toolbox from the hardware store onto your rack? One that has a lockable hasp.

    anyway yea ammo box would work pretty damn well, bolt it on to the rack and jimmy up a locking mechanism.
