Wald Liftoff Bicycle Basket on a Xootr: Warning, Extreme Geekitude

We've been riding our scooters a lot lately, despite R.'s recent accident. T. likes to go to the grocery store and sometimes other places. I really hate having bags hanging from handlebars, but as obnoxious as that is on a bicycle (which I never do, because I have panniers on the bianchi and a front tray with a cargo net on the townie), it's about 10 times worse on a kick scooter.

After giving it some thought, including just how Amazingly Dorky this really is, I bought a Wald Liftoff Bicycle Basket to put on my Xootr MG.

The basket and mount come on and off relatively quickly and easily, so I think I can still fold the scooter and tuck it under a grocery cart at Roche Bros. And on the way home, I don't have to worry about the apples in the grocery bag getting dinged up by bouncing off the upright post every time I push.

ETA: This and other pictures can be viewed at my Xootr Gallery in Scrapbook.

Should you be interested in buying this basket for your Xootr, it can be found on Amazon here:

I was not the first person to have this idea:

That blogger put it facing in, but I tried that and decided it got in the way. I'm
not concerned about tipping forward (I'll let you know if I change my mind after trying it out).

I'm not even the second person, to judge by the now-broken links in this review:
