This is a new one on me: The Evo Integrated handlebar Basket or “Bar Basket,” or “Barsket,” or — at last call on St. Patrick’s Day — “Bar-Busket.” And speaking of bars (or drinking anyway), according to the guys at Hawley, this thing is a far superior way to carry a six pack — way less rattling than your standard Wald basket. Although I always thought my Wald basket actually provided a smooth ride for my cargo. Almost like the wobbly stays acted like a gyroscope, keeping the load in one place as the basket moved all over the place like skinny Elvis’ hips. I Googled around and all I could find out about this item is that it is made in Copenhagen (or at least designed there) and that it’s available through Hawley. Obviously it requires a removable face plate stem, but I don’t know if I’d hook the Evo Handle-Barsket up to my K-Force Light Carbon Monocoque stem and load it up with a case Tecate. Perhaps someone will come up with recommendations on that one. Ooh, just thinking about the crash that would occur if the faceplate gave way while you were carrying a heavy cargo…damn.
 

Specs, price, and an informative video from Hawley after the break.

    I think it would carry the same weight as your Wald rack. I mean, honestly, putting anything too heavy on the front end of your bike isn’t a great idea. But I think this is a neat way around having a standard basket jiggling around.
