If you thought that good bike baskets have gone the way of the morning paper boy, then think again. The Portland Design Works Takeout basket breathes new life into an old idea, and is like a frame-mounted daypack attached to your handlebar. The Takeout is no slouch. Portland Design Works makes some of the most useful high-end bike accessories to be found anywhere, and their Takeout basket is a monument to the common sense ingenuity of their design team.
The backbone of the system is the lightweight but robust 10 mm alloy frame, a far and away superior construction than the common plastic or coat-hanger steel mesh found on most bike baskets. Paired up with a roll top bag and the Takeout is clearly the best in its class.
