Attractive D-shaped traditional wicker bicycle baskets in medium size (15”) or Large size (18”).
Hand woven natural, full cane wicker bicycle baskets have been popular for load carrying for over 100 years. Quaint styling and immensely practical, these classics of the urban bicycle world are ideal for carrying bagged items, and can even handle loose items, as the close woven knit prevents items dropping through the weave (unlike many of the wire type baskets).
The natural material is weather resistant and, being woven, will allow water to easily drain.
Front mounting allows security observation of the contents.
