Bontrager's Interchange Handlebar Basket is perfect for the farmer's market or carrying your books to class. It adds a touch of class and convenience to every bike. Plus, it fits all handlebars, goes on and off in a breeze, features sturdy wire construction and has a built-in carrying handle, too.
My bike is my only form of transportation, and I even use it to haul groceries to feed a family of three. I overload this basket multiple times a week with groceries, books and other things -- and it held up beautifully for 2 1/2 years before the mesh attached to the locking mechanism finally began to break. Note: that I had the brace professionally installed at a bike shop, so maybe that is why I have not had any problems with it.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Maybe it was installed incorrectly, but the brace that the basket attaches to (on the handlebars),
broke the first day I used it.
Basket will slide onto the brace now, but there is no "locking" device. That is the part that broke. Seems too small for the basket's weight.
Now, if I go over a medium size bump, the basket usually falls off.
Very disappointed. Love the basket.. Wish it could be attached some other way.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
