PRODUCT REVIEW - The Best Bicycle Rear Rack Baskets Folding - Wald 582

The Wald 582 sets the standard for ingenuity when it comes to rear baskets. Mounting to the side of almost any rear rack, this nimble basket is the perfect size for packing 1-2 bags of groceries while balancing your load. When not in use, the base of the basket pivots up allowing the side walls to collapse. A simple clamp at the top of the side panels keeps everything secured while the basket is folded up to one inch thick

Bicycle Rear Rack Grocery Baskets, Folding - Wald 582 (Set of 2)
  • Large size: 12 3/4 x 7 1/4 x 8 1/2"
  • Fits grocery bags easily
  • Folds up when not in use - about 1" thick when folded
  • Includes mounting hardware to mount quick and easily to a rear rack (sold separately)
  • Sold as a set of two - weight, about 5.5 lbs total

These baskets are strong and hold up for the long term. These baskets are easy to install and fits well with the standard rack. Its very sturdy in use and easy to operate. I'd recommend adding small lock washers as I did, so I'm not worried about re-tightening on a regular basis. I also added wire ties as a backup but I have been known to put on a belt and suspenders at the same time. I like backup.

I have had extra heavy loads over rough ground on a regular basis without a failure. They also provide a good platform to bungy my Large Alice pack and frame. I’m sure any load you have will be lighter than what I have done to them.
