Making a bike basket

Sephora has been wanting a bike basket for a while.  She didn’t want one of the little girl types of baskets, she wanted a basket like my big black one.  Like this one.

Here is my solution – I picked up a green basket at the dollar store, grabbed some green pipe cleaners that I had and attached the basket to the bike.  I ran into a problem though.  The basket doesn’t fit flush to the handle bars and steering post.  If I do that, it hangs down so crooked that she couldn’t actually put anything in the basket.  I took it off and started over with one addition.  I cut two sections from a foam noodle – one to act as a buffer on the handle bars and one to act as a buffer on the steering column.  Now, it works perfectly!  She just needs to keep in mind that it is still a dollar store basket – she can’t load it up with ten pounds of stuff but it is more than secure enough for her Gatorade bottle, candy, goggles for the pool, a snack etc…  All the things she finds very important!

She also has her black pouch on the inside of her handle bars – plenty of storage

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just
    imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the very best
    in its field. Wonderful blog!
