The Bike Porter

  • There's no denying the practicality of having a bike basket. With capacity for everything from carry goods to groceries, baskets make bombing around town on your bike way easier. The problem is that they they're generally clunky and ugly. This design from Copenhagen Works, spotted at Cool Hunting, answers the call and then some. Dubbed the Bike Porter, the design integrates a front basket with handlebars, offering a sleek, 2-for-1 solution to adding carrying capacity on your bike.

    "As bike lovers we saw a hole in the market for great and innovative bike parts that were aimed at the lifestyle segment of the biking industry," Mads Damkjaer, one of Copenhagen Parts' founders, told CH. "Our main idea and vision was, and is, to create radical behavior change in the way we think, and rethink, our urban mobility and infrastructures and to promote a biking culture as bikes imbue our cities with new meaning and make us healthier, happier and more connected than a car ever could."
