This basket is sturdily built and the gloss black finish is of exceptional quality. However, the mounting hardware looks like it was designed for a 1968 Schwinn Typhoon. All the hardware is English, not metric. There are no locknuts. There are lockwashers on the screws, but of courses there they do no good. The supports are not long enough to reach the mounting holes on the fork of my Electra Townie, and they will work only on forks that are tapered in thickness at the bottom, which will leave out mountain bikes and many hybrids.

As it stands, you will probably have to run to the hardware store to get locknuts and various pieces of metal to adapt the basket to your bike. Updating the hardware on this otherwise fine product wouldn't cost this company much or require much effort.

I like this basket, but it needs about a dollar's worth of hardware to make it excellent. Other commenters have noted that there are no lock washers on the nuts, and it certainly needs them, but there's another issue: It needs two more screws (and nuts, and lock washers). This is in order to secure the connection between the supporting rods at two points each. One point of support just isn't sturdy enough.

The supports use 8/32" x 1/2" machine screws, so buy a set of those with matching nuts and locking washers, and you'll be fine.

I use 3 of these, one on a surly LHT, one on a 1986 road bike, and one on a beach cruiser. All were fairly easy to mount and work well.

As another reviewer said - the hardware is really not quite sufficient and you'll probably want to get some lock nuts to better secure the bolts from vibrating loose, but after that it is a sturdy basket.

I purchased this item several months ago and it is a high quality steel wire basket that mounts rigidly to the front wheel forks if you use the struts that come with it. This basket is sturdy and can carry much more weight than the cheapies I've see at local sporting goods stores. However, it is critical to note that when you mount the basket using the strut as indicated on the instructions you LOSE YOUR FRONT SHOCK ABSORBERs if your bike has them. I realized this the hard way when I installed the basket and realized that the rigid strut prevents with two piece front forks (an upper and lower half) that are intended to move relative to each other (to absorb shocks when your wheel goes over rough surfaces) from moving. You not only end up with a rigid front wheel, but a bike basket strut that is constantly getting unintended loads from road inputs. It appears that this basket was designed before bike front wheels had shock absorbers. However, all was not lost. I was able to modify the struts using some basic tools and purchased fasteners so that the struts attach to the upper part of the fork so that the relative motion of the front forks can occur. Viola! I have my front shocks back and still have a sturdy front bike basket.

For the price this is a good front bicycle basket. I would suggest one of the Wald mesh baskets instead,though, because with this item you'll need some kind of liner for smaller things. Although usable, this basket was too small for my needs. Also, even though it is designed to be a "multi-fit" basket, I could not get it to seat so that the bottom was level. This tilt caused items being carried to fall towards the back of the basket--not really a problem, but it made it difficult to use the volume of the basket efficiently.

I have one of these baskets on the front of my 1991 Schwinn Crosscut hybrid bike which is my grocery-getter. The basket is a nice size: Large enough for one or two bags of groceries side-by-side, deep enough so that things won't fall out, but not so large that it makes my bike unwieldy or difficult to park. It's also plenty strong. The entire basket is covered in a nice black vinyl which protects the basket itself from damage and rust and makes getting things in and out of the basket easier. The mounting hardware is OK although I imagine the screws will either need to be tightened every couple of months or the person doing the install should use some blue Loctite. I read an earlier review which suggests getting extra bolts so that the length-adjustable struts will be locked in two places instead of just one - this is very good advice, but my basket came with two pairs of bolts so this must have been improved recently.

The support struts can be attached to either the axle or the eyelets (the little holes for screws attached to the fork of most bikes, often used for mounting fenders). I used the eyelets so that the basket's hardware doesn't have to be dealt with when I want to remove the front wheel. I don't think that this basket will work with bikes which have a front quick-release lever because the struts will get in the way of the motion of the lever. My bike has quick-release hubs but I replaced the skewers with bolt-on skewers designed to work with quick-release hubs. You can get them in most bike shops or here on Amazon; Delta Axlerodz are one example. I prefer those skewers anyway since it makes the wheels just a tiny bit harder to steal without requiring a special key to remove them when servicing the wheels.
