Has anyone ever tried adding a front basket to a bike with front shocks? I've heard from a couple sources that this is a "no no." However, I have seen a few bikes with this setup. I guess the downside is that if the basket is supported by braces that bolt on to the front dropouts, there will be stress placed on the portion of the basket that is bolted to the handlebars when the bike bounces over potholes, etc.
I'm looking for firsthand experience rather than speculation. Who's actually done it? Thanks.
