Front basket for dropbar, 31.8mm handlebar

I have a road bike with dropbar. I have looked at 1392 Front Basket - Waldsports. While it supports 31.8mm handlebar, but it's too wide for dropbar.

Can someone recommend a basket that will work for dropbar with 31.8mm handlebar?

Ortlieb front basket, Its Bigger than their Bar Bag But uses the same Bar Mount + keeps your stuff Dry.



Klick Fix another German company has More open Basket style baskets that also use a Bar Mount

Just to be clear, the 31.8mm measurement is the diameter of the bar as it passes through the stem. The width of the bar is likely between 38 and 46 centimeters, and that is the distance that the basket has to fit in.

You might be able to use this Wald basket: https://www.amazon.com/Wald-Front-Bi...241809&sr=8-16

Wald sports has a Porteur like basket now too, low rise rails around it so stays below your drop Bars..

The 3133 by Wald may fit, as well. It would be best to find a transport-oriented shop around you and check the stuff out on your bike. Without knowing your specific handlebars, lights, computers/other doodads, it is hard to make a recommendation that will work.

I think that rack was meant to carry pizza's right? I would need a container to put on top of it to carry grocery and such. And that might interfere with the drops.

Here's one that may fill the bill.


The QR bracket is pretty universal, but needs about 4" of stem extension. Dims are 6x9x10" I know the width is 6", but not sure if the depth or length (width on the bars) is 10.

My handlebar width is 42 centimeters. The 198 is 14.5in in width. I will cut out a cardboard to see how it fits. Hopefully it will work...

If you have Shimano levers, you need to account for the swing-in when shifting too.

Great, but I have four chinchillas to haul. Guess I'll have to go with the trunk bag.
