Introduction: Disappearing Bike Baskets

 Disappearing Bike Baskets just get out of your way when you don't need to use them.

You may want to see a removable basket by onrust..

My black Basket comes off  and becomes a hand basket. 
Great at Burning-Man when you go to Center Camp.
Lock your bike and take your gear with you in the black hand basket..

While the Steel Baskets on the pink ladies bike has complementary
unfolding baskets on each side of  the back wheel.
They fold open when a need arises..
Note the nice hack necessary to mount the dual rack to the pink bike..

Unless, somehow you put your foot in it......
Ergo, it is the objective to attain a sufficient equilibrium of balance
to use a bike with a loaded basket while navigating from home base
to class room and back again without incurring more then the one
obligatory road rash ;-)

You tickled my mind with your
Removable Bike Basket
Just had to do a picture of two of my baskets
and something they could carry that was unexpected fun.

Muchos gracias.

I didn't go this year, but early pic galleries and over views show sparse
art although a few pieces are outstanding a result of supreme supported
artistic expression.

I wonder... did a lot of people stay home this year? The price of fuel is CrAzY! 8-/

Burning man is on my bucket list, but not at the top. At least I can go/live vicariously... online. ;-)
