From the Manufacturer

Nantucket Bike Basket Co. ~ Each Basket is a Work of Art

Made with Unique Hand Crafted Materials

The Nantucket Bike Basket Co. specializes in unique, hand-crafted baskets for your bicycle. Made from high-quality materials using durable weaving techniques, Nantucket Bike Baskets are made to last, while giving your bike a classic look.

Quality Workmanship

We look at each and every one of our baskets as a work of art. Each basket in our line has been designed by our NBBC team, and woven by skilled craftsmen to be beautiful, yet functional. There are many types of baskets and raw materials available around the globe. At Nantucket Bike Basket Co., we have painstakingly chosen only the best for our collection. All of the raw materials we use have been hand-selected for strength and durability, ensuring that our baskets will hold up to the demands of everyday use.

Many Styles and Colors to Chose From

The average bicycle basket is woven for use as a decorative piece. The problem with this type of weave is that it is not meant to hold up to everyday wear-and-tear. For this reason, most of the baskets in our line are woven from full core Indonesian rattan, which we have found to be the most durable natural fiber available. We have incorporated rolled rims into our woven baskets to prevent unraveling at the top, allowing you miles and miles of happy riding with your Nantucket Bike Basket.

I bought this for my wife's Forge Coco, a retro style comfort/cruiser 24" bike. We didn't want to spend $50-$100 on a basket, but it's also not a typical "department store bike" and the lower range of wicker baskets just look too much like...well, baskets. Anything under $50 usually has splintery, thick wicker, a loose weave, and a tapered design that makes it look like you stole something from a fruit vendor. By contrast, the Nantucket Lightship looks more like a classy vintage fishing creel without a lid.

The Nantucket Lightship is a great step up, well worth the extra money. Very tight weave, small-gauge and high-quality weavers and spokes in the wicker. The solid brass buckles and thick leather straps are sturdy and long enough to mount it on just about any bike. It'll hold up to 13lbs (2-4lbs more than most in the lower range), has a solid wood platform in the base. The design is very graceful and complements her bike's swoopy frame lines too.

Absolutely perfect!

This basket looks great on my hunter green Fuji bike! Arrived within two days, safely packaged. It has a wood base at the bottom for support and the straps are really nice. Good support, nice color (I chose the lighter one), perfect size, plenty of room, one classy bicycle basket!!

When I first got this, I thought it was so cute on my red bike.
However, few pointers:
The straps to attach it to your bike are made of leather, so if you are looking for clamps that are more sturdy, this is not as ideal.
The top part where it curves in limits what all you do put into it. If you are looking to buy groceries or put in projects of some sort into the basket, buy a wide rimmed basket instead.
The bottom broke within 2 weeks. The basket is weaved, but the bottom is a wooden rectangle which the weaved sides are just glued into. It is not very stable as a build.

I really wished it had worked out better, but I am going to invest in a metal mesh basket instead.

This is exactly the basket I had been looking for. It holds enough for a spin around the neighborhood or an afternoon on a longer journey. Fits water, cell phone, keys, wallet and a light jacket. Just right.

My birthday gift this year was a new commuter bike. I bought a Trek Allant 7 WSD, and it's perfect for running errands around town, getting to the beach, and just cruising around the neighborhood after a days work. I really wanted to outfit my bike with a wicker basket as I love the retro look. The Nantucket Lightship Classic dark stained is EXACTLY what fit the bill. This basket is well constructed, and it's wood base makes it sturdy and roomy. I keep my cable lock, and a cloth sack that holds everything else like keys, phone, Kindle reader or tablet, small wallet and a rolled up windbreaker if it gets chilly. I wouldn't pack heavy things in there as the weight limit is around 13 lbs. This basket completes my accessories and it's super cute.

June 30, 2013 - Updated review

To my dismay, the basket lasted only two months before it started to fall apart. The rim loosened up and the basket started to pull away from the rim. I was so disappointed and reluctantly returned it to Amazon (after the 30 day full refund deadline). Kudos for Amazon for giving me a full refund anyway, given that I returned a defective item. I then spend a couple of hours on the internet researching other baskets, both wicker and wire. Guess what? I did not find anything that I likes as much as the original Nantucket Lightship basket, so I ordered a second one! I'm hoping this one isn't defective and it will last for two years instead of two months. I will admit, I also ordered a mini alloy front rack that I will install as extra support for the bottom of the basket. I don't carry heavy items but I want this basket to last. I'm hoping to relieve some of the pull from the leather straps at the top by having extra support at the bottom. I'm going to keep the 5 start rating.

I just purchased a new bike and I knew that I wanted a basket. After much research, I decided on this one and I'm so glad that I did! It's quality and style are very impressive. The size is perfect for me and it will hold a lot, the paperwork that came with it states, "it will safely hold up to 13 pounds." I purchased the light tan and when it arrived, the color was lighter than what's shown in the picture, but it was still very attractive. My bike is a 21 speed mountain bike and I was a little concerned that I'd have trouble with it staying flat against my handlebars, but that wasn't a problem. The real leather leather straps are an additional plus. Overall, this is a wonderful basket and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!
