    Some people- mostly more flexible and/or not 'gifted' with a gut mounted fuel tank as I - will lean their bike into them at a steeper angle and then hike their leg over the top tube between the bars and saddle.

    Worth a try. I may also try planting my other foot on a curb or other raised surface (relative to the bike) and pushing off for some extra "upward-launching" leverage.

    [QUOTE=marnepup;14991453]I like the collapsible baskets from wald. They stay on the side of your rack, but when they're empty, they fold down to just an inch thick. Since my bike is primarily my commutermobile, they're the perfect baskets for me. collapsed, they don't interfere with the garment bag pannier thingy that usually drapes over the rack!

    +1 on the Wade folding. All the above and more. Love mine. Mounting not a problem. I got a pair for about $36 with free shipping. Picture and good write up here http://thefrugalhamstercyclist.blogspot.com/

    I did mount a plastic basket ( I got for $1 at a yard sale) like the one you show to the front for lite loads and my puppy.

    Good luck and safe riding.
