Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Convenient and cheap
This cheap rear basket conveniently fits a small backpack or a bag of groceries. I love to bring my stuff in a proper backpack, as I need to carry it around off the bike, but I hate biking with a load on my back. This basket solved my dilemma.
The basket is not fastened to the rack in any way, so I recommend securing it by tying a rope at the bottom. Otherwise, it may come flying off in the middle of traffic. (Been there, done that ...) The hooks will also wear out if you allow the basket to just hang freely.
