Topeak MTX Rear Basket

Saturday May 8, 2010

The Topeak rear rack I fitted to the Dahon last weekend now gives me the option to attach my pannier bags and my Topeak rack bag to the Dahon – great for going into the shops and on errands.  The versatility the new rack gives the Dahon is well worth the money and the extra weight.

Yesterday I collected a Topeak MTX Rear Basket to add to my bike load-carrying capabilities.  At only £23 from Chain Reaction, it’s a wise purchase and something which will come in very useful.

Its MTX fixing system enables the basket to slide securely onto the MTX Rear Rack quickly and easily.  Once fitted, it can hold quite a lot of bits ‘n’ pieces without any risk of them falling out.  If you want to, you can easily remove the basket when you arrive at the supermarket and use the basket as a shopping basket as you walk around (it has a carrying handle) and then simply reattach to the bike when you leave the shop.

The photos below show the basket on the Dahon, but it can easily be slid off and attached to the Trek.

Apologies for the poor quality photos – they were taken using my mobile phone’s camera and it’s full of dust!
