A bicycle basket allows a cyclist to carry cargo or objects without using their hands. A bike basket on children's bicycles and some utility bicycles are often mounted to the front handle bars and are made of wire mesh, wicker, or woven plastic.
Other types of bike baskets mount to a luggage carrier near the rear wheel of the bicycle. These baskets are usually narrow and deep as compared to the average handle bar basket. These rear bicycle baskets function like a hard sided pannier and allow cargo to be transported lower on the bicycle. This keeps the center of gravity low, improving the handling and control. We now stock a range of wicker bicycle baskets for that retro look.
