The Bigger the Basket

In Japan they’re called Mama Chari, or mom’s bike, and are used to get groceries, ride to the train station and according to “halloween” in the Bike Forums, they’re considered disposable by the Japanese consumer.

They’re also quite useful and even raced in a 12-hour endurance marathon (translated) – check the aero bar basket option and more on Flickr.

The bigger the basket, the more groceries, and surprisingly the more aero.

Those ones have aerobars mounted.  For the Marymoor Little 100 last year - the basket WAS the aerobar.

Do you have a link for that that isn’t behind a password? I’m thinking aerobaskets is a new thing.

Yet another utility bike function is being aero!
