Lunch/basket

So, here's my classic old-fashioned bike basket (yes, it does have a green tint), and the classic old-fashioned lunch I brought in it. Apple and peanut-butter, can't go wrong with the basics.



Lunch basket

Also the sturdy and useful new stainless steel food containers I got from Life Without Plastic. They allow my new basket to be the coolest-ever bento box. I just toss stuff into the steel tins, then toss those into the basket, then toss the basket onto Clyde's handlebars, and off I go.



Seriously, I can't believe what a quality-of-life improvement this basket represents. I know. I'm a bit crazed. But I rode home tonight with 30 tulips in there!



30 Tulips

It was so Euro, riding home with those tulips in that basket.



Okay, now this is just starting to sound dirty.

Great basket
My wife had that basket on her Electra Amsterdam. Unfortunately, due to the rod brakes on her Raleigh, it won't fit on the handlebars, but we did get a smaller wicker basket. It's amazing how much you can fit in that thing, it really is huge. Here it is in action :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/poetas/3654003413/in/set-72157613093579192/

Anyway, should be easily transferable to that Omafiets if/when you get it :) Enjoy!

Re: Great basket
Yes! That's the very one!

And I bought it with the Next Bike firmly in mind. Though I have to say, just having it (and a new rear-rack bungee) on Clyde has solved so many of the little annoyances I had in getting around with my stuff, that I'm not feeling quite as desperate as I was a week ago to leap into a new bike purchase.

pretty basket!

man, i really want to pull out my bike and start using it for short shopping trips like i did a few years ago - and i will! as soon as the damn weather gets better! we had a couple of beautiful days but now we're back down to 30s and rain rain rain... forecast even mentioned snow flurries! aaaarrrgggghhhh!!

it's a regular, inexpensive sporty type bike and i didn't make any effort to get a basket or anything. i would bring a big backpack with me and stuff it with my groceries. :)

My sis does a lot of her grocery shopping with a backpack, and it seems to work well for her. I use a messenger bag for when I'm just getting a few small things--no reason a couple of potatoes and a quart of milk can't go in there.

I hope you decide to try it!
