comment How do you lock your recumbent?
Actually that is what I use. Though I fear that untangling this might be fast. For one thing removing the wheel and opening the chain and the front bome can be done in a couple of minutes, from there sliding out the main tube should doable. If not then removing the front fork should be a couple of minutes more. And even then this is saying you can’t pretend for more security than the Bordo gives you. For my upright bike I sleep better since I fitted it with a U-lock.

comment What bags will fit a Challenge Seiran SL?
Yes. But as you can see on the picture, I already managed to attach a small (~10L) bag on the back of the seat. So the Solo Aero would not bring much. I’ll dig into the Banana though.

comment Why are both Schrader and Presta valves still used on tubes?
Is there a question? What is the question?

Ah yes, the Banana racer, in addition to the small backpack I hacked, should do the trick. Thank you for the pointers.

Indeed it is not intended to fit a rack. I am looking for a bag. This is a second hand bike so I have no particular dealer yet. But I will surely contact one soon. Looking at the pictures from Challenge’s site I do not think the SL can easily be fitted with the aluminium seat. It seems this seat is fitted on a tube that attach to the frame on a eyelet on the horizontal part of the main tube. The SL does not have this eyelet but a pair of them each side apart the rear wheel to attach the seat. See this on the picture of my bike.

15L would be too small. Maybe I could do with 30L, but it will be the strict minimum. I’ll have a look at your links. I attached a picture of the bike.

@R.Chung This is the lightweith Seiran. on the page I linked it is the third picture. I believe the rack they sell is for the regular (touring) version. On my frame I do not see anywhere to attache a rack.
