    its a good idea if you want like 10" of rise. Most people would prolly be uncomfortable on those, though.

    I'm sure it's functional, but that first one looks like it's begging to knock out some teeth.

    the shallow one on the nagasawa is cooooool

    and since i change handlebars every other day it seems, this would be just as utilitarian as anything else.

    i be a metal shop could fab one up custom for about as much as i'm sure they'll sell them for

    I feel like the fact that it doesn't have struts will make this thing hell on your stem. Just try and think about a heavy load pulling/twisting your bars downward. Any load put in the basket will be beared by the two or four bolts in your stems face plate.

    A raincoat? A paperback? Ok.

    A 12-pack? A stack of fire wood? No, thank you.

    i agree that they have a limited weight load, but for the right application they are pretty slick.

    what about when you skid and lean super forward and the only support upward is your handbars? i understand that case isnt as for as much time as the amount of time cargo would be on there.. but are stems + bolts really that weak?


    yea like for books and such~ simple campus carry around~ damn how to get our hands on this?
