Many people approach me about the trunks i have on my bike so quick tip number 2
Use a Scooter trunk found at your local scooter shop or Swap shop or Online
as a stylish yet affordable locking trunck for your bike.
Cost - anywhere from $15 to $35 or so per box... depending of course on the style, make, model of the one you want.
They come in a variety of styles and colors and are easily mounted to either post rack or standard rack systems.
Shown first is a larger trunck box with a base mounted on my Silver e-bike's post mount rack.
another is the Black slim line model i put on my standard bike which has a standard rack sytem.
Step 1: Mounting the box
Depending on where you purchace yours it should but not always will come with a plastic shock base for mounting the box directly to as outlined in the photo in red on my Silver E-bike. You then mount the whole thing to your rack system.
My Black Trunk Box - did not come with this base however and had to be mounted directly to the rack and I'll show you a little more on how that is done though keep in mind, this is not rocket science we are discussing here... anyone can do this and figure it out
- it's that simple.
Though the mounting hardware may be slightly different depening on the box you get. Mounting them is pretty much the same no matter which bicycle rack you have - ether post mount or standard rack system.
However is is good to note here that if you are going to be purchacing a rack to go with your Scooter Trunk - make sure the bolts can attach - that there is a place to run them through or you be drilling them out if not. A Schinn post moount i looked at recently did not have and space to run the bolts though along the main frame of the rack. So i just looked for another style.
As well make sure you pick up a rack that can hold at least 20lbs when choosing a post mount system just to be safe.
