The Basil Pluto Bike Basket comes with a space frame for safety, a mat to line the basket and the EDO holder - which fits onto a bike frame 30-50mm in diameter
Once the holder is fitted the basket can be removed with ease, and comes with an adjustable arm under the basket to adjust the correct distance from your handlebars.

We searched far and wide for a bike basket th
at could hold Fin and finally came across the Basil Pluto bike baskets. Imported from Europe, this is an ultra sturdy design that can hold up to 15kg. We have used ours for the last few years and absolutely love it! The space frame gives them room to turn around while still keeping them safe and contained. We get so many comments when we use ours and it is so much fun being able to bring Fin along with us.
We recommend popping your dogs favorite blanket in the bottom of the basket for a little extra padding and something familiar for their ride.
- Favorite weekend activity; Biking with Fin to brunch!
We recommend removing the basket while transporting the bike on a vehicle.
Ensure the adjustable arm is secured before use.
If you are unsure about your dog handling being restrained, start with placing the basket inside and rewarding them for sitting in it for longer periods at a time.
Eventually work up to fully restraining them in the basket and leave them in for longer periods of time before trying on the bike and eventually getting moving. Start with small laps around the neighbourhood before heading out for longer rides.
Some dogs take to things quickly, others may need more time to adjust to a strange new thing.
