Product Review: Bike Baskets

Along with cruiser bikes, bright colours and flower prints, and big balloon tires, bike baskets have made a real comeback in recent years. There are plenty of solutions for carrying small items on your bike, including traditional panniers, handlebar mounted bags, courier bags, and more, but nothing suits a cruiser better than a basket up front.

What's more, there are plenty of basket styles now available, and we usually have a few styles in stock. Starting at about $35 we have more than one style of wicker basket and a couple of wire baskets as well. Though there are a few different mounting styles they all mount very easily to almost any handlebar set up. Sizes also vary a bit, so come down to the shop to check out what works best for you.
