Bontrager's Interchange Rattan Trunk Basket is perfect for the farmers' market or carrying your books to class. Its timeless look and storage capacity add a touch of class and convenience to every bike. It slides simply on and off your rear Trek or Bontrager rack (sold separately), features classic, good-looking rattan construction and has a built-in carrying handle, too.
This basket holds two full bags for groceries with no problem. Strong and durable. I read the previous review about the spring being weak... Mine is fine. As long as you have the correct rack to mount it on, it is very easy to use.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
The basket is great and I have found several uses for it around the house, however it does not work on the bike. The spring is too weak and the entire weight of the basket is placed on the spring, which results in the basket falling off while riding. All it would need in a piece of metal or plastic to keep the weight of the basket off the spring and/or a stronger spring to be more functional.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
