We install the rack and basket on your just purchased bike or on your existing bike. It's shown folded and open, ready to be installed. Folded the basket is 1 inch wide, and open 8.5 inches wide. The basket is mounted on the right side of the rack.
The rack and basket adds another dimension of versatility to your campus and local area transportation. When open, the basket holds all your needs for classes (in your backpack, or not),a full size grocery bag, or a case of soda, and when folded it's like it's almost not there. The rack is aluminum for maximum strength and stability and minimum weight. It includes a built-in platform that serves as a mini-fender and can hold your U-lock. The basket is steel for maximum carrying capacity - size and weight - and minimum folded width.
