Here’s a kickstarter project that seeks to enhance a common bike accessory stylistically. The typical bike basket is attached to the bike via bars, fork eyelets or axel bolts, but The Barbasket looks to eliminate all the extras and create an integrated piece that is both functional and stylish. The obvious problem is that you will have to replace your entire bar setup, but if you find the Barbasket positioning preferable, the benefits of an integrated rack and the extra style might appeal to you.
The designers are still finalizing color choices, which donors will have a say in, as well as a complete set of materials. The bags are reportedly able to carry a six pack and a couple burritos and come with subtly placed D-rings for extra security. The project has a way to go at this point, but if you pledge $90 or more you’ll get one of the Barbaskets discounted from $120 retail.
