Malibu Front Mount Bike Basket
Malibu Front Mount Bike Basket
Malibu is one of the crown jewels of Southern California. The state recently added seven miles of bike friendly lanes to the Pacific Coast Highway from Zuma beach to Leo Carrillo State Beach, where on-leash dogs are permitted to play on the beach and in the surf. Malibu has plenty of biking trails and beautiful vistas where seals and dolphins can be seen swimming just offshore, and the sunsets are spectacular.
All Malibu baskets come with a brace already attached for stability. We reinforced the bracket attachment with an aluminum brace bar and attach it to the brace at two or three points depending on the basket. We wove two steel reinforcing rods that run from the top to the bottom of the basket and connect to the bicycle bracket through the aluminum brace bar for strength and safety. This basket can easily hold dogs up to 20 pounds, the only limit is the length and width of your dog. If she fits, then it should be a comfortable ride.
This basket is made with willow, with a willow weave bottom, and without a handle. It's designed to stay on the bike, but can be removed by pulling up and away with both hands. This basket is coated with a clear resin to protect the lovely hand woven willow from the salt air and sun. The Malibu is deep and spacious. Makes a great gift for that special bike and dog lover.
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 (or two). When ordering two leashes we will include two side mounting points. We attach single leashes to the brace.

Beautiful and extremely sturdy basket. Well made liner and pillow. Arrived promptly. My Cooper (senior pug-23 lbs) exceeded the max weight for this basket by a few pounds which caused the basket to rest against my bike gooseneck at a slight angle. We were able to make a modification to hold the basket completely upright. Cooper is very comfortable and loves going for rides! Amazing product! So glad I found Beach and Dog!!
I am so happy with this basket. Camilla fits perfectly and loves to go on rides with me. This basket is light weight, very well made, attaches easily and securely ,and it’s super cute!
Received my basket. It is absolutely adorable. Pebbles also loves it. We have only been around the block a few times but are waiting for some sunny weather to get down to the beach!
Given as a gift and my understanding is that Otis loves to sit in his new basket!
Tough to get him out. Grandson loves it too!
