Great basket, solid FRONT mounting basket
on July 1, 2010
I just purchased and installed one of these on my wife's new beach cruiser. This is a very nice basket that mounts very well. The white color will allow prettying it up with plastic flowers or such while being a more useful basket than a plastic one.
The leg ends have two sets of holes one for using smaller screw on the mounting lugs on most bike's forks and another larger set for mounting the legs onto the front wheel axle ends,either can be used, brilliant. The upper end attaches to the stem rather than the handle bars, making for a solid mount, while leaving room for other accessories on the bars. Installed, the whole rig seems sturdy and quite useful.
One note: the bracket that fits over the stem is oversized for the common 1" stem/head tube so care should be taken to insure that the little locking tab on the inner diameter stays engaged with the grove on the head tube while tightening the lock nut up, this will help insure a solid assembly. Another note for those that may get confused by other reviews: the "stem" refers to the part that the handle bars attach to and slides in to the head tube. This is what this basket is meant to attach to (the head tube). Another review seems to have confused the "stem" with the "seat post" (which is what the seat attaches to and slides into the seat tube). See [...] if needed for common bicycle nomenclature.
