Our stylish polished stainless steel porteur rack is a heavy duty option for carrying groceries, a change of clothes, or whatever you need for everyday adventures. It’s height adjustable and will fit almost any commuter, road, or mountain bike.
*Please note each rack is unique as they are handcrafted and made of natural materials. Variances will occur.
I have a brooklyn bike, the willow model. My husband installed the rack for me, he said it wasn't that easy to install and had to make some adjustments to the mounting hardware for the rack to fit. So with that said, if you are not very savvy at installing things maybe like the description says, to have it professionally installed. The rack is great, love the look of it and it is sturdy. I haven't used it yet for heavier items but it seem like it will be fine for a bag full of groceries or farmers market run. I docked it 1 star because of the difficult installation.

- Hands down the most aesthetically pleasing bike basket out there -
I had a small issue with the wood stain and reached out to bbc for advise. They recommended putting a lacquer on the planks since I didn't like the weathering effect. Worked like a charm.
To my surprise they shipped out new planks and their sweet little tote to me the next day. I'm super grateful and amazed by their impeccable costumer service and quality of their product. Been gushing about them to everyone I can. Thanks again!

No what I was hoping in terms of quality, one of the wood slabs was split broken right out of the package.
Very poor quality on the finish and welded seams, it was never polished”.. it has a rather unfinished look.
Oh and for future reference the screws that hold the wood to the metal should always be counter sunk,
Thanks for sharing Alejandro. We certainly wished you had reached out to us in advance of being disappointed enough to leave a non-glowing review. We handle issues like this when they arise. The wood on the crates needs to strike a fine balance between being durable but also light enough such that it's the not the source of unnecessary weight. On occasion, we have had pieces crack which is why we keep ample quantities on hand to address those rare instances. -Ryan Zagata

I ride my bike for groceries, shopping, takeout, and pretty much everything else, and this rack has been good for all of it. Compared to the rear racks that lots of my friends have, having a front basket style is way more convenient since I can just thrown bags or takeout containers on easily. I really wanted a rack like this instead of a cheaper basket for carrying heavy things like packs of beer, and it definitely does that job well. I weaved an old belt through the wood slats that I use to quickly cinch down any loads, which has worked great. I had to use p-clamps to install it to my fork, but it seems like a strong fit. The next closest rack that I could find was more than twice the price of this one, so I'd say that this rack is pretty great.
Thanks so much for sharing Alexander. -Ryan Zagata
At first found it more decorative than not. Now I use it more. You should include a bunggy cord with
Thanks so much for sharing Nicolay. We do offer the bungee cord on the site for purchase as you suggest. -Ryan Zagata
