One Strap Turns Your Bike's Frame Into A Basket

If you've ever wished for some more storage space on your bike without resorting to adding a hipster basket on your handlebars, you'll appreciate this alternative solution from designer Yeongkeun Jeong. It's a simple strap system that turns the bike's own frame into extra storage.

A long elastic strap is strategically woven around the inner triangle formed by the bike's frame, which creates a basket that's flexible enough to let you insert and remove items, and strong enough to keep them secure while you're riding. And to ensure the straps don't shift over time, a set of soft silicone stickers are used wherever it makes contact with the frame so they aren't able to slide around. As long as you don't overstuff it so it interferes with your pedalling, it's a rather brilliant idea.

    I think the article should have expanded on the pro's and con's of bike riding in short shorts and tight white t-shirts.

      Pro's and Con's of bike riding in short shorts and tight white t-shirts:
      Pro - Woman doing said activity
      Con - Guy doing said activity

    Don't forget the lycra-clad weekend hacks who insist that they wear the cycling gear of a company that doesn't even do business here.

      Yeah, because lounging around in a XXXL Man U top or an Everlast T-shirt gives you soooo much more cred, donnit.

    I think you would be more hipster if you used this instead of a basket! :p

    If I saw a guy wearing lycra AND sporting this 'innovative' tosser carry strap, I think the kind thing to do would be to euthanise him.

    I never knew riding a bicycle was so problematic. I thought pedalling was the hard part.
