After much consternation, and never actually coming to a solution for transporting my bag in this thread, I’m leaning towards fitting a Wald 137 basket (with the standard mounts) to my Pompino SS.
Can anybody help with my questions?
I’ve seen some pics of the basket fitted on bikes with drop bars. Are people fitting wide drops to be able to achieve this? The basket is 15" wide at the top and the gap between my bars (42cm) is basically exactly the same.
Do the handlebar clamps fit over the 31.8mm diameter of the bar near the stem? I can’t seem to find a clear answer to this on the net.
Anybody got a better idea for a front load setup? I don’t have a hole in the front of my fork crown, and don’t have mid fork braze-ons either. The stock Pompino fork isn’t low trail, but i think it should be ok for the loads i will carry (laptop plus lunch).
