Wald basket

I just ordered a Wald 1372 front basket. It appears to have adjustable legs.

My bike has bosses on the outsides of the fork (midway down, sides not fronts). Is there any reason I wouldn't want to mount there? I'm trying to avoid installing at the fork end bosses so as not to interfere with the QR.

That bosses midway down the fork sounds like low-rider bosses. Aren't there bosses on the dropouts as well?

Go ahead and attach the legs to those bosses. If the basket feels stable enough for what you want to carry you should be fine.

I would be surprised if it would interfere with the QR but on the fork blade is fine.
