Stylish Rear Bike Baskets

Stylish Rear Bike Baskets

I started biking with a backpack, but a few years ago I added a quick-release mesh rear basket and it changed my stinkin’ life. Why do I love it? I keep my back cool and free of aches, I can haul around twice as much stuff (sometimes four times); it frees me up to carry whatever bag I choose, and it just looks good. A stylish rear bike basket is perfect for the urban commuter, so I’ve collected a few of my favorite for you.

1. Basil Pasja Small Basket, $120, a rear solution to bringing the pooch along for the ride; 2. Wald Folding Rear Mounted Bike Basket, $22.93, this is a great understated option, keep it clean with two of these and you’ll still have space to bungie cargo on top of your rack; 3. Elevent81 Rattan Style Basket, $52.49, if you love the Nantucket style front baskets, you’ll love this quick-release rear basket; 4. Bobbin Straw Pannier, $99 is a great option for concealing all of your goods; 5. Basil Memories Bottle Basket, $27.99, another tall pannier style basket perfect for those of us hauling more than our fair share; 6. Kettler Rear Bicycle Basket, $35.89, a great option for the utilitarian commuter, quick-release and low profile.
