Covet: Bent Basket

Bent Basket screen shot

I really seem to be obsessed with carrying things on wood on bicycles these days.

Here’s another design for a bike-mounted rack, called the Bent Basket. Thick nylon straps are removable and interchangeable and the base looks like a skateboard design gone wrong. I like it, although those straps could really wreck havoc on fresh strawberries (my girlfriend and I are having a heck of time getting strawberries and raspberries home on our bikes without the end result looking like a CSI crime scene).

  1. CSI special effects – so easy to do. :)

    I love Faris Elmasu’s takes, he really thinks outside the box… :)

    A solution to the delicates problem might be a slight re-design; slightly higher bent up sides and a set of slots near the top of the sides as well as at the bottom, with another set of wide straps, might allow one to suspend objects!

  2. I have observed that car insurance firms know the cars and
    trucks which are at risk of accidents and other risks. In addition they know what types of cars are susceptible
    to higher risk plus the higher risk they have got the higher your premium fee.
    Understanding the straightforward basics connected with car insurance will help you choose the right types of insurance
    policy that could take care of the needs you
    have in case you get involved in any accident. Thank you for sharing your ideas in your blog.
