Spacious rack with multiple installation options

I use this as a front rack for errands and grocery shopping. It will easily hold two grocery bags. Installation was pretty easy. I used the dropout braze-ons and fork blades for attachment and am experiencing no rattling. You'll want to mount the upper struts in away that isn't touching the rack or you'll get buzzingknocking. Some handlebar tape can mitigate it if it's unavoidable.

The u-lock holder is handy, but my lock still bangsrattles over pavement if I only use the included strap. I added a straphook at the U to secure it under the rack and now it's silent.

Blackburn should make an accompanying bag for this rack. It's an odd size so I've been shopping around for something that will maximize it's utility.

Better installation photos, esp. for front is needed

Instead of carrying heavy groceries and hang some on the handle, this basket made it much pleasant.

I do love and got the basket installed on front of the bike by a local bike shp. The installation instrn was

inadequate for me, thus the bike shop. The shop man had to figure it out.

The slats are too wide, groceries would fall out. i had to find a plastic container to just fit inside the basket and found one for $9 at Home Despot, tied it to the grill w stainless steel wires.

I can now put 1 gal milk and 12gal OJ along with heavy strands of bananas. But, tragedy happened.

As i was loading them, the front whl suddenly turned and brought the entire bike on the ground. the fall

damaged my skewer (needed a long one) and damaged my brakes. Sorry i cannot attach photos so it'll

help u to install it urself. It's still in the shop to fix the damage.

I request this seller to find some device to prevent this front whl twisting or front whl kick stand in your

product line. And to relay my review to the manufacturer of the basket.

And, the instruction was not good enough to mount on the front. Two horizontal rods have no connectors

to screw onto the bike's front struts, etc. They also need to do detailed photosdrawings esp. for the front

installation.

Not many complains in detail as i do so i wish u'd appreciate my time and thought for this feedbk.

A nice, sturdy rack that might be a little heavy for some

I use the rack for commuting to work.

Pros the rack seems pretty sturdy and well-built. I think it looks pretty cool too.

Cons kinda heavy, I didn't like the upper mounting hardware cuz it was squeaky. I came up with a different mounting strategy.

Multi adjustable
by Mark Tunney

I have one on both ends of my commuter bike. Had to mount the support bars to the brake bosses, v-brake. The mounting points, the allen bolts seem to come loose more than normal. I hate rattling noises, so we will see if they finally seat in and become less of a problem. They can hold a lot of whatever you put in them, and they come with a nice bungee net. Good mounting points for lights. I wish they were metric instead of standard thread.
