Wald 198 Adjustable Front Bike Basket

Made in Kentucky, the 198 is the deepest of the Wald baskets and ideal for running weekend errands.


Wald has been making high quality wire bicycle baskets in Maysville, Kentucky since 1929. You will see their baskets on pizza delivery bikes in Chicago, on hipster bikes in Portland, on chic fashion bikes in Manhattan, and everywhere else across the US. From a company well respected for its environmental practices, these baskets are constructed from zinc-plated steel and nicely finished with no rough edges to catch on bags or clothing.

The 198 is their most adaptable and versatile front basket. The two-piece adjustable legs extend up to six inches (legs extend from 12.25 inches to 18.25 inches when mounted to the axle; 12.75 inches to 18.75 inches when mounted to the eyelets). The legs can be mounted to either the fork axle or the eyelets. The longer handlebar clamps offer greater clearance when mounting. As the deepest of all the Wald Baskets, it will suit just about any errand, shopping trip, business meeting, or weekend adventure. The Wald 198 comes with struts that can mount the basket to either your front axle or fork eyelets.

Keep in mind that adding weight to your front handlebars will change the way your bicycle handles. Please don't overload your basket as it can cause difficulty in steering or loss of bike control.
