Basil bags and acceSsories
Dutch designed Basil specialises in practical and trendy bicycle bags, panniers and baskets for city, urban and touring uses. The beauty of the Basil design is that many of the bags don’t look like normal bike baskets and bags, and are equally practical and stylish when not attached to your bicycle.
The single bags and panniers feature hooks hidden on the back of the bag allowing you to easily click the bag on and off your bicycle’s rear rack. The double bags are semi permanent fixtures and have greater carrying capacity and security as their main features.
WE LOVE: TOKYOBIKE
tokyobike is a small, independent bicycle company founded in 2002. The name was derived from the design of the bikes. In the same way the mountain bike was designed for the mountains, so tokyobike was designed for the streets of Tokyo. Based on the concept of ‘Tokyo Slow’ the bikes are designed to be light to ride with an emphasis on comfort over speed.
