I have yet to try the bus rack out but my schedule is changing and I'm being given a few accounts outside of boston and the reach of the subway. My bus out to Burlington (perhaps an hour on my work bike, 1/2 hr by bus) has that bike rack. But my bike is a heavy Raleigh 3 spd with the biggest Wald basket they make. From the directions the T site gave me, it seems there is a support are that may or may not sit right where the basket and fender meet over my front wheel. Has anyone experience with putting 3 tons of English steel and a big basket on the bus?
