Spotted on my way home Friday.
I searched a long time for my basket, and tried several "non bike" baskets in search of my ideal basket.
This one is just about the right size, and I like the whimsy of leaving the handles on. My complaint about most "traditional" wicker bike baskets is that they are just a little bit too small. I like to actually be able to carry stuff in my basket. A lot of stuff.
my work bag in the basket, filled with CSA veggies and tupperwares from lunch. More CSA veggies in the pannier (dinosaur kale!), and on the rack a care package from my dad: an electric chainsaw, disassembled in a box! It was all pretty heavy and I was a slow moving vehicle. Went on the bike path because I didn't think I could really keep up in traffic.
