    locking system for non locking rear bags?

    Hey guys. I have a rosewill seat post rack bag that is on my schwinn seat post rack. It is fairly secured with velcro onto the frame. However, I'm noticing that it looks like the bag is about to fall and looks like it's not that secure when I lean my bike onto the wall. I'd like to see if there's a way that I can permanently lock my bag completely onto my rack using a locking mechanism. Is there a locking mechanism for bags without the locking system? Thanks.

    I had an incredibly crappy Trek pannier that would fall off the rack if I ever jumped curbs. I took a pencil and marked two spots right next to the bottom of the pannier (where the ring of the pannier would attach to the rack) and drilled holes in those spots - it had a rigid plastic liner. Then I just put a regular Masterlock combo lock through the holes and, hey presto, permanently attached pannier.

    Don't know if that would work in your situation, but thought I'd make the suggestion.

    OP, by "locking" do you mean "protection against theft", or "solid attachment to the bike"? If it's the latter, many pannier manufacturers sell their mounting hardware separately. Ortlieb, Rixen & Kaul (Klickfix) and Carradice come to mind, I'm sure there are many others.

    seat post racks only really work with a bag on top if them ,

    unless they are specifically made with side support rails for loads hanging down.
