I’m not alone when I say how much I love a good basket bike. Typically, you either run a Wald basket with the stock struts and that’s enough. Many people run a Wald, sans hardware, zip-tied to a rack. Pelago has taken the latter and made a rack and basket in one. It’s called the Rasket and it’s a sturdy resolution to create the ultimate basket bike.
Pelago, the Helsinki-based urban bicycle brand, just announced their simple and well-designed racks gained distribution through the US’ premiere bicycle distributor, QBP. Now their racks. including the Rasket combo, can be ordered from any shop that uses QBP.
This collaboration came out really well. The previously mentioned Carhartt WIP x Pelago Bicycles x Mission Workshop collection is now in stock at Mission Workshop.
