It's held up really well. I'm ashamed to say we've left the bike out in the rain a few too many times, but the basket - despite a slight change in color - is sturdy as ever!
I'm not convinced this would be the ultimate basket for an adult's bike, but that all depends on what you're wanting to tote along. You could carry a small purse in here, or maybe a few (2-4) library books, or a small Sigg bottle and a paper lunch sack. But it's definitely not good for a trip to the grocery store or anything.
For our purposes, however, it was absolutely ideal. It's also easy to attach which is nice. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a smaller basket for an old-fashioned single-speed bicycle.

The problem is it's labeled SMALL by the manufacturer. The product description says MEDIUM as of this initial review.
It's not that useful for grocery shopping but for little knick-knacks like a woman's small purse/wallet or bottled soda or camera would be fine. The MAXIMUM interior dimensions are approximately 10 wide by 7 deep by 6 high. Everything tapers down a little towards the bottom and all the corners are rounded off.
Although it has a handle I can't really see anyone taking this on and off a bicycle to do any real shopping. In addition to being too small to be useful for groceries it would be a pain to mount the velcro straps on and off the bike (especially with items in the basket). Also the strap on the bottom that mounts vertically on the head tube will rub on it constantly. I don't know if there will be long term effects but I would put a clear piece of tape to protect the finish if you cared about the paint.
Since this item is made of natural materials it will vary slightly from basket to basket. Mine was not very centered when mounted. I had to rethread one of the velcro straps through the wicker openings. Not a big deal but something to note in case you were wondering why it looked lopsided.
So in closing. If I had to redesign this product. I would want a quick release mechanism and more useful space. I may try the large which has the quick release but I think that may be TOO large which may throw off the steering especially if loaded with heavy stuff. I just wish there was a TRUE medium.

Wife loves it...it's cheesy looking, but pretty functional. I actually think she likes the fact that it looks like she's riding around Mayberry.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Fiancée loves it. Fits quite a bit odd stuff, beautiful light brown color, durable and we'll built, and easy to attach to her beach cruiser.Published 3 months ago by flipmo101
