We have a pretty good selection of bike baskets at the time of this posting.  Some are Electra branded, though they would work with many other bike brands.  Others are from aftermarket companies and intended for virtually any bike that you’d want to put a basket on.

A number of the baskets are wire and painted in a variety of colours, while others are wicker-looking and in a few shapes and sizes.

Most of the Electra baskets are $60.  The others are in and around the same price.
