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.

Freda loves this basket. She has plenty of room, she feels very secure. I'm sure she loves the pillow too. The hardware was too small for the diameter of my bike frame and I had to pad it out with some rubber and duct tape to get it sit right, (I've yet to see how this holds up), but it rides well considering it's size and is easy to take on and off. We give it two paws up!
I love my new basket and so does my pooch! She has plenty of room and is not cramped. Also, the quality of the basket is great and definitely worth the money.
Well-made and very cute. Even if I can't train my dog to ride well, I will keep the basket on for trips to the store.
I absolutely love this basket. My little chihuahua fits perfect with a ton of room left. It’s super easy to take on & off & is very stable. Thanks for such a great product. During these not so easy times it’s been wonderful to put her in the basket & get outside for a nice ride!
Our dog Phoebe finally got to go for a ride in her new bike basket. We purchased the large and it was a perfect size for her. She is an 11 lb miniature dachshund so it held her weight perfectly without any sag to the basket. She can also lay down comfortably if she wants with plenty of room. The height is also perfect for her to sit and rest her head on the side, or for when she likes to stand and have her ears blowing in the wind. The quality of the basket is very sturdy, I feel like it will last a long time. We are thinking of placing some type of Velcro wrap around where the basket rests against the center bar, (below the handle bars), just to make sure it stays in place. We didn’t have an issue at all, but in the past we did with another brand basket, it would move off if we rode over a bump. Something else that I love is being able to switch the basket between my bike or my husbands without removing hardware or needing tools, just lifts right off and on easily. We did purchase a liner and pillow for her to add some extra comfort when sitting or laying down, although the pillow is a little too squishy, think it needs a little more stuffing, but the pattern is nice and will help the basket to stay clean.
Thank you for making a sturdy attractive basket!
