I had been saving for a VO Porteur front rack, because it seemed like the largest "platform" available for carrying cargo that was also in a nice shiny stainless finish. (What can I say, I'm a vain, silly creature. I may go out of the house looking a fright, but by Hera my bicycle will be snazzy.) I hadn't considered a front basket because I figured that it would limit the volume of what I could carry up there, but then I did the inches< - > cm conversions and it seems like the Wald basket is actually larger than the porteur rack. Does anyone have experience with both? How do they compare? One advantage of the Porteur rack is the ability to use panniers with it too - would one be able to install lowrider front pannier racks with the Wald basket?
