    Wald basket - attach to quick release axle or not?

    With the Wald baskets with support legs - Can those attach to a QR axle on a bike and clamp down? On the instructions it says it is possible, but then seems to contradict it a few sentences later.

    Those seem preferable to the ones that simply rest on the head tube of the frame with that little bracket.

    Thanks,
    Cyclist, angler and aquarist

    I think that it would be OK. The load is being supported by the QR skewer. That's bigger in diameter than the screw that attaches luggage racks to dropouts.

    I would use some p-clips instead, attaching it to the quick release defeats the purpose of the quick release and makes it a pain to remove the wheel.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    +1 P clips. First time you need to remove the wheel, you will be happy you did it.
