Assateague Front Mount Bike Basket
Assateague Front Mount Bike Basket
The Assateague (pronounced 'as-uh-teeg') is named for the peaceful sand covered barrier island off the coast of Maryland. This state park is home to a herd of wild ponies. We named this basket in honor of the tough little horses that thrive in the sun and storms of Assateague island. Visitors to Assateague are rewarded with one of the most stunning natural beaches in the United States, where the crowds are nonexistent, and the wild beauty is open to lovers of camping, bicycles, and of course, dogs. Pet friendly camping on the beach is encouraged and this is one of the only beaches in America where dogs and horses can be seen together. But please don’t disturb the horses!
This willow basket is designed around a metal frame for maximum durability and coated with a clear resin to protect the lovely hand woven willow from the salt air and sun. The Assateague includes metal hooks that connect to your handlebars, and a steel reinforced handle in order to conveniently carry your items when you're not using your bicycle. This is one sturdy basket. Great for carrying dogs, items from the market, picnics… the possibilities are endless. Makes a great gift for that special bike and dog lover.
Use of a bicycle bracket brace (included) is required when carrying dogs in this basket. This is a very large basket. The bracket will ensure correct alignment on your bicycle and help properly distribute the dog's weight to the bicycle.
Includes Two (black) basket leashes and a front mount bracket to mount your bicycle's handlebar.
Please see our complete line of Basket Accessories for beautiful handmade liners and pillows that fit this basket.
Dogs should always be secured with a Basket Leash (included). Other colors available.

This surpassed my expectations. This real Willow Wood very large basket makes it so easy for my 15 pound dog to curl up and get comfy and enjoy the ride. It was super easy to install, and gets lots of compliments as we ride by we hear, “Look, there goes Toto and Dorothy”. This basket could easily and securely hold a dog up to 25 pounds I’m sure.
I was looking for a sturdy and retro basket for my 3 wheeler bike. This is perfect. My yorkie loves it and it is more beautiful in person. Couldn't be happier.
This is an absolutely awesome buy - it is well worth the price. Not only does my dog loves it, but she also enjoys taking rides anywhere. We get a lot of compliments anywhere we go and, cars would even slow down to either take a good look, enjoy the scenery or take photos! Love it!
My little pup loves his new basket. I did what was suggested and trialed it in the driveway by walking him in the basket. The straps are perfect and attached to his harness. There was no way he could hop out.
Love my assateague basket! My pup Patches and I ride daily and enjoy all types of weather. This is my 4th basket over a 20 year period of riding with my dogs and the smiles I get when folks see us, never grows old.
