Great Basket, didn't stay on my bike

PostedJuly 1, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: unsuitable for bike
Initially I thought this was a great basket, large and sturdy. I have a hybrid bike with straight handlebars and found that other baskets didn't fit, so thought that the hooks would be perfect. Started off down the road on my bike with my bag in the basket on front and within a couple of minutes the basket had fallen off. Tried again and the same result, fell off again within a couple of minutes. I don't know if it's the design of my bike or the fact that I shouldn't have put my work bag in it, but not suitable at all. Maybe something with straps would be more secure for my bike.

Beautifully crafted, sturdy and capacious basket

PostedMay 25, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: too big for my dawes kalahari
The product is very well made and would hold a lot. I had to return my basket, not because of any flaws in quality, but because it was too big for my bike and the fittings on the basket would not fit my bike. I would advise future purchasers to check on size and fittings before buying.

NIce basket and very good size

PostedSeptember 3, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: needs bracket
I love the look of my basket, the only thing is that I need to make a bracket to hold it off my fender. I would buy it again but just need to be aware that it may need a bracket.

lovely basket - doesnt fit

PostedJanuary 2, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: doesnt fit
Bought this to go with a ladies trek navigator bike purchased as a Christmas present for my partner as it is exactly what she would love. And she was indeed chuffed to bits except it doesn't fit, if you make it fit it jams on the breaks. I appreciate that it does say 'may not fit all bikes' but at this price it was designed for a generic ladies style bike. It does however fit perfectly on my twin sus (mens) mountain bike!

Doesn't fit even when recommended

PostedAugust 6, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: doesn't fit on all bikes
Although it is a good sized basket it doesn't fit with Claud Butler Winsor 2010 hybrid bike despite the fact the the Evans website recommends that you buy this with the bike! I will now have to waste my time exchanging this instore and am disappointed!

Lovely basket

PostedJuly 17, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Cons: does not fit bike
Absolutely lovely basket and just what I wanted but sadly it does not fit on either of my 2 bikes. I feel Evans should have indicated what bike it would fit on the website.
