Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for your little dog! I bought this basket, put in a small pillow and covered it by pinning a pillowcase around it for comfort. I also clipped a lanyard on the metal part that holds the handle for a safety clip for my 4 lb dog's harness. Giving my dog time to adjust to riding in a basket, it works great. Also if you leave the pillow out it sets the dog in deeper if desired. As expected, it does take some time to get used to the extra weight on the front when the basket is loaded. It is sturdy with easy release to use for removal and other uses. This basket made of real material not the fake stuff. Although I propped the bike for pics, Kickstand won't hold bike up with dog in it. I don't recommend it's use for a dog bigger than the recommended weight limit of 10 lbs though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Addition to an Electra Cruiser I purchased this basket for my Electra Daisy cruiser bicycle and it works wonderfully. I'm able to throw my purse in the basket, a water bottle, a bag of "stuff" or any number of additional items. The biggest drawback is the fact that it has a 10 lb weight limit, so even though it's a pretty large basket, one has to be careful with the weight of items. Even overloaded though, the basket hasn't fallen apart, it just makes the bicycle front heavy when it's parked. The basket tilts front and back, so you can lift it higher if needed, and it also is easily removed for carrying around stores or wherever it's needed. The only reason I didn't give a five star rating was due to the weight limit... but, the reality is one probably shouldn't be hauling more than that around anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basket, but wish it were darker This is a durable basket, holding up to 11 pounds. It's perfect for taking my Yorkie for rides, picking up a couple of bottles of wine, and toting library books back and forth. The fact that it slips easily on and off its mounting is a real plus - you just snap it off and take it with you! If it were a richer, golden brown, it would be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick Basket I bought this basket to attach to my cruiser bicycle. I wanted something in the front of my bike so that I could see it and have easy access to it when I am stopped, but also looked cute. The basket was very easy to attach. Riding around on pot hole filled streets my stuff inside bounced around a bit but the basket remained securely in place. The basket was also nice to use to carry my helmet when off my bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I wanted a great basket to go with my new Electra bike and I chose this one. The quality of the hardware that attaches the basket to the bike is really high. I am impressed. The basket is easily removed and easily attaches. Great bike basket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snapped I've had my basket for a little shy of 8 months and it recently snapped. (Right around the plastic connector the wicker) I'm disappointed because I loved this basket. I'm thinking it was because of the bumps in the ride. I'm hoping there is a warranty.

What size handle bars does the quick release bracket accommodate?  We got an Electra basket for a Cannondale bike but tried again for a Trek and it was too small for the 31.8 cm handles.  Thanks.

Hi! Just wondering, can this basket attach to other types of bikes besides an Electra? We are trying to find one for a Ride Brilliant bike. Thanks

Asked by: Bryk
The Quick-Release Wicker Bike Basket is designed for Elektra bikes specifically. It might work on other comfort/cruiser bikes depending on the size of the bike's stem. However, without knowing more about your bike we cannot say for sure.
