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.
