Very sturdy, fits purpose

PostedApril 11, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
I bought the front carry rack to fit my specialized crossroads sport 2013 hybrid bike...the team at Evans happily assembled this for me and fitted it to my bike, the rack is very sturdy and fits the purpose which I use it for, it's cheap, very light and does not restrict any turning movements once on the bike...bargain!

Super Sturdy

PostedMarch 10, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Heavy
A big sturdy rack that will hold a good deal of weight. It is however a bit heavy and so it adds to the pedal power needed. It also has a tendancy to swing the steering around when you lean your bike up against something, so it falls over more often (i guess I will get used to it).
Having said that I have ridden some long rides with it without any problems and I have filled it with tonnes of "stuff" on the school run. So jolly useful.

SO SO HEAVY!

PostedSeptember 4, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Heavy
I've just received this... as above. I'm shocked at its weight!
I normally cycle a Brompton or a road bike and have had to buy another bike for transporting my baby and all his paraphernalia. This rack is designed for carrying larger front loads and I cannot imagine how heavy the bike must be with this rack and any cargo. Let alone with a baby on the bike too!
It's getting sent back.... right NOW!

Basil Front Carrier

PostedJune 27, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great, can fit most baskets onto it.
I was delighted to find this product. I returned from visiting friends in Holland and fell in love with the big carriers and decorated bikes. Promptly purchased this, and have fitted a big wicker hamper onto it so i can use my bike for shopping, so saving fuel and getting fit.
It was easy to fit, and looks smart.
I am now going to decarate my bike Dutch style, with artificial flowers and pretty panniers.
