I got a new bike basket!
It's made by Electra, so it's perfect for my Townie (best bike ever, I might add):
This piece went on the basket itself:
This piece goes on the handle bars:
I plan to use it to carry my laptop and purse when I want to take a quick trip over to Starbucks (and Camille's when it opens nearby—can you say cute and delicious mini-eclairs?). And we took a ride over to the new Yogurtland last weekend (although I guess I didn't need the basket for that). I'd also like to see if I can get Bitsy to ride in the basket, but I don't know if she's going to go for that!
Here's the bike with the basket attached:
I also got a the cutest Hello Kitty bell, but it didn't work out. Erik put it on, but Kitty was kinda upside down, and the headlight had to move from the left handle bar to the right one to accommodate the bell, and it just didn't work over there. I'm disappointed, but maybe I'll think of somewhere else to use the bell. The bike was getting a bit overloaded anyway. Less is more and all that.
What's your favorite type of bike? And what bike accessories do you have or covet? Let me know. (And while you're here, listen to the great Ella Fitzgerald singing "A-Tisket, A-Tasket.")
