Okay. Here’s the thing: bike baskets are entirely great for commuting. So much can go in there: groceries, packages, cats, clothes, vegetables, cheese wheels...all of it. They’re great! But the utmost uncomfortable commute of all time involves carrying these items, but having no way to hold them down so they don’t launch themselves out of the basket and into the street as you ride over the dips and crevasses of urban and country landscapes. It is terribly embarrassing—if not also extremely inconvenient, and at worst, dangerous for you and everyone els—to inadvertently litter your various possessions behind you as you ride. “Whoops, there goes my whipped cream and argyle socks!” Who wants that? Exactly, no one.
What you need is a cargo net. Hot damn! For about $5, a mighty elastic net of awesomeness will without a doubt take care of holding all of your miscellaneous bits and pieces in place, securing also your peace of mind and reputation as a savvy two-wheeled being. The only better use of money you’ll spend on your bicycle is a saddle that doesn’t give you sores. Now, you can carry yourself, and your things, with poise.
