Bike Rack In a Basket!Review by Cracks & Racks - Brandon
Ease of Installation

This is a very sharp looking cargo basket and will not take up all of your crossbar space. It also saves space by doubling as a single bike rack and has locks built in. It also comes with an extension to make it 14" longer, which is usually an additional part with other brands.

I find it to be heavier in comparison to other cargo baskets. It must have to be that stout for the bike as well as the cargo, but your crossbars have a weight limit. So, while you save in space on the crossbars you lose in carrying capacity.

I also found the install to be longer in comparison to other brands (~10-20min). This design uses sleeves/brackets to connect two male ends of the basket together. In my opinion it is weaker than the male-female design. Make sure to check the brackets regularly as the bolts can come loose over time. (Posted on 10/24/2016)
