    Question about saddlebags/basket

    I have been riding traditional bikes for years but am new to recumbents. I just purchased a used Sun EZ Sport CX and need some advice about saddlebags/baskets. I do not race and only ride about 10 miles a day. I also use my bike around town (such as going to the grocery store, etc.) On my traditional bike, I have a rear rack with two saddlebags that work fine for me. However on the Bent I am wondering what is the best alternative to achieve the same purpose. I appreciate any accessory suggestions, including brand and model. Thanks.

    I don't know about your specific bike, but many bents can take rear racks/panniers like you are used to. Or other options like bags that hang on the back of the seat or "mid-ship" racks and bags that hang under the seat. You can see the latter on my Cafe just one thread down....

    Here's the link.
    Bottom of the first page and the second page has bag pics.
