    Arkel Utility Basket

    For those of you who don't know, Arkel changed the design of their utility basket pannier. The older design used straps and buckles to hold down the top and manage the load. The new basket uses an internal frame and has a zipper top.

    The new design seems to be optimized for groceries, while the older design seemed to be more versatile.

    Anyway, I checked with Arkel, and they are sold out of the old style utility basket. Anyone know a source, other than Arkel, that may have some of the old style utility baskets in stock?

    Europe

    This will probably cost you more, because of shipping, but have you tried contacting Arkel in Europe/England?
    I think they have their own, independent stock, so maybe they have some old UBaskets left.

    Just a thought.

    All the Arkel products I've bought have been shipped from North America. I don't think they have separate stock.
