Product Description

The Wald 582 sets the standard for ingenuity when it comes to rear baskets. Mounting to the side of almost any rear rack, this nimble basket is the perfect size for packing 1-2 bags of groceries while balancing your load. When not in use, the base of the basket pivots up allowing the side walls to collapse. A simple clamp at the top of the side panels keeps everything secured while the basket is folded up to one inch thick.

The installation was very easy.
Susan F. Emery
If the tab/clasp that holds the baskets when folded rusts, the baskets may be stuck open or closed until you can get them loose with some penetrating oil.

Perfect for your commute to work or trips to the grocery store.

I have spent the last 2 summers struggling with the decision of whether to purchase these baskets or not. I did not particularly want to add significant weight or bulk to my bike and yet I found myself frequently in a situation where I needed to haul things around and wished I had a "trunk" to put them in. After finally committing to the purchase, I must say I am thrilled about my decision.

As a frequent commuter by bike to work downtown, I often come home with more than I take in. Now, rather than fooling with bungie cords or hanging cumbersome plastic bags off of my handlebars, I simply unlatch the baskets and neatly place my shopping bags in them. So far I have conveniently and safely hauled such things as produce and potted plants from the farmer's market as well as bottles of wine and library books. The convenience is well worth the added weight. I love my baskets!

I think this is a wise purchase for anyone who uses their bike (rather than a gas guzzler) as a means to get around and complete common errands. One who rides merely for the sport of it, may find the extra weight too burdensome. The baskets are utilitarian in nature. Go without if you are looking for the fast and sleek ride.

The only reason I did not give a five star rating to this product has to do with the hardware that is included with the product. In order to attach the baskets to my bike rack, I had to purchase longer bolts to properly secure the braces, so keep in mind that, when it comes to hardware, one size does not fit all bike racks. After making this modification, however, I am glad to report that I am not experiencing the "rattle" that a few other customers have detailed in their reviews.

I use these baskets with the Topeak rear rack to great success.

Things you need to know off the bat:
-The mounting hardware is useless. I attached mine with micro hose clamps from Precision Brand. NOTE: I used the "micro" hose clamps, and they worked, with a lot of elbow grease -- but it might be easier with the larger size. Then again, maybe not, I don't know. Anyway, I used five hose clamps on each side and I think it's going to be a LONG time before these baskets go anywhere.

-The basket-closing hooks are absolutely impossible to move using your bare hands -- at least if you mount your baskets the way I did, maybe there is more torque going on than the hooks are designed for. Wald could put "wings" on the backs of the hooks if they want to make them a little more ergonomic, but they didn't. I simply use mini bungee cords from this set to hold them closed. It works out because when I want to fold the basket down, I remove the bungee cords, and then I can use them to hold down whatever I put in the basket!

-One guy on here said his baskets are already showing signs of rust. Mine are in a few places, but I don't think they're going to fall apart any time soon.

OK now you might be wondering. WHY is the product worth 4 stars after all that negative information?:
-You can just THROW STUFF IN YOUR BASKETS and go.

This basket is reasonably sturdy and the quality of the gloss black finish is excellent. The folding design works well. It looks as if it would rattle like crazy when you're riding with it folded, but thanks to the tight retention hooks, it's quite solid. The basket's nicely sized for grocery bags.

The downside here is the same as with the other Wald products I've tried: The mounting hardware is appallingly out of date. It's English, not metric, and Wald doesn't use locknuts, only lockwashers attached to the screws (where they are useless). This is less of an issue here than it is for the other Wald products, because this one doesn't attach directly to your bike, only to the rack. Go out and buy some locknuts and you'll have no problems.

Alas, the mounting clamps are too small to fit the fatter tubing used on many modern racks. You'll probably have to use the Wald rack (or some other old-school, inexpensive rack). And that rack is well-built and sturdy, but its mounting hardware has to be adapted to fit current bikes.

I use these baskets ALL the time. They're amazing. I recommend, though, getting a few small bungee cords to help secure things so they dont jump out over the top of your baskets, but other than that, they're quite sturdy. They are a little bit difficult to secure to the back rack, but once done you'll wonder what you had ever done without them.

I am outfitting a bicycle to become my basic errand vehicle for my return to city living, and chose these as my carriers for a few reasons:

*They fold! When shut down, they collapse to about an inch thickness-- very convenient!
*Unglamorous metal framing lacks the sexy steal-appeal of voluptuous panniers
*They fit a purse, grocery bag, or school bag-- all things I'll be carrying.
*They come in a set of two, and are reasonably priced!

Once I had my rear rack on, these attached very easily with basic household tools. I had no problem installing them, but someone with very large hands may have problems. I have had no problem with rattling, and have not used any additional hardware to secure them. A tip-- I found it useful to pinch down the U-clips before screwing them on, to get rid of the gap.

They do add a bit of weight to the bike...around five pounds. My bike is no aluminum frame wondermachine, so it's not a huge difference to me, but it could be an issue for someone who wants something very easy to lift and carry.
