Wald Baskets

I love my Wald basket! Anyone else have a Wald basket on their bike? (Pictures please.)

I've got a Wald 585 basket on my commuter, held to the side of the rack by hose clamps. Some innertube rubber between the basket and each clamp reduces rattling and loosening. It's lasted 20 years so far. Most bikes can accommodate this basket, but you may have to set it back in order to avoid heel strike, depending on your bike geometry.

And they're cheap, one of the best bargains in all of cycling.

Great for hauling a grocery bag, beer or small dog.

I have Wald 582 Folding baskets on my MTB-based commuter. It's my #2 commuter now, but my #1 for groceries, carrying stuff and snow. Here they are open and folded.

I've had folding baskets on my Bridgestone MB-1 commuter for quite a few years. They're heavy and they do rattle a bit but have become an indispensable addition to the bike. I no longer have the front rack on the bike due to the increased carrying at the rear.
