    That's just a spin off of the Wald 582, a very common basket on bikes and perfect for a grocery bag. I would just order the Wald if I were you. But I'm sure Bell is okay too.

    I've used the walds on my old bike. I had one for each side of my rack which worked really well. I don't know about this rack though, from the reviews it seems like it's not put together too well.

    Just go for the Wald and save yourself the hassle-- you'll end up with it in the long run. I love mine- nearly indestructable. Get one for each side to balance the load.

    Yes.


    (Light grocery run)

    The left one is a Sunlite, and the right one is a Wald.

    Jdswitters, where did you get the bag that is in your basket? Is it insulated?

    It is an eight dollar cooler I picked up at walmart at the beginning of summer on a fishing trip. I picked it because it looked like it would fit the baskets and it does. Very nice for shopping trips and pick nicks.

    I have used the Walds and liked them. I got rid of that bike and the Walds are now somewhere in my garage. I probably need to find them one of these days.

    LOL Yeah, that's me times 4. I even listed two of my freshly repainted Wald 582's attached to a rear rack for sale on Craigslist and decided to pull the ad. The response was nuts for something so small, but I was giving them away basically. The yellow things you see are reflective ankle cuffs. They work brilliantly and fold with the baskets no problem.

    I have two of the Bell units on the back of my 72 Schwinn Suburban - hold ALOT of stuff and seem fine and durable. You just need to "wiggle" them a bit to fold securely after opening. Wald is a good brand however and if price is the same would likely go for the Wald - if not get the Bell...
