Since we first began to make Cycle Saddles, our aim has been the BEST of EVERYTHING. The Best Materials, the Best Designs, the Best Constructions, that experience, skill and money can procure. This is how we designed and manufactured our new Wire Basket, made of a metal structure, wooden base and a leather grip. For the use on modern bikes this basket is equipped with a modern KLICKfix® handlebar adapter.
The leather grip is made of a stack of leather washers cut from the scrap from our saddle production.
Made in China (metal part)
Assembled in Italy

Cycling gives me the chance to get away on my own. Cycling brings me independence. It allows me the freedom I need after a busy day. Having the opportunity to leave the house with no real objective is a fabulous thing and meeting up with friends couldn't be easier. I'm quite a sociable person, so the more chance I have to see my friends on a regular basis, helps me deal with the pressures of living in the city.
The Brooks cycle bags let me carry as little or as much as I need. As my career varies from day to day, unpredictability is one of the major issues I have to contend with and with the Brooks products, they help as they are versatile and tough. The panniers offer huge assistance as they fold neatly away, but also when full, don't appear to be over bearing or unstable. The basket is a great way to go through daily life and also when shopping, helps protect the environment, which I am also passionate about. The Camden shopping bag is stylish, flexible and practical, everything I need to help with a busy day. And when I am rushing around the city, comfort is key. The Brooks saddle fits perfectly and will only get better with age.
Q > May I ask who makes the bicycle in the photo showing the basket in situ?
A > We had the bike made for us in Italy, but it is actually simply a display bike, without brakes, lights, etc. Similar bikes to that are produced by many of our customers including:
Pashley from England www.pashley.co.uk
Abici from Italy www.abici-italia.it
Skeppshult from Sweden www.skeppshult.se
Retrovelo from Germany www.retrovelo.de
Sparta from Holland www.sparta.nl
Have a look at their websites.
Does the Wire Basket have a quick release?
answer - yes.
Q > Can this basket be attached to a rear rack?
R > Not really. It has been designed for attachement to the handlebar.
How much weight can the basket hold?
A> 7 kilos is the recommended maximum load capacity.
I'm wondering whether there are any instructions/diagrams available online that depict the installation of the handlebar adapter for the Brooks Hoxton Wire Basket?
A > Please visit the Click Fix website for details.
Q - This is a really great basket but i'm wondering if it can be install on a bike called Strida 5.0.
A - We don't know all bikes on the market, but the HOXTON Wire Basket comes with a KlickFix adapter which should fit most handlebars.
I see this basket has quick release, but can it also be locked into place?
>> KlickFix makes a lockable clip, but this is not the one that comes with the Hoxton, we're afraid.
The Hoxton Wire Basket is surely a wonderful piece of accessoire, but even with the Klick Fix System it is not possible to really fix the basket. The fixation is not tight enough so it will still move and make some inappropiate noise. Is there a further adapter available? Best regards, Randolph
A> We occassionally receive this complaint and we are unsure the cause. However, you may try wrapping the bars of the hoxton where they attach to the adaptor with a small amount of high density tape for a closer fit.
I own a bianchi opale lady. Will the hoxton wire basket fit on my bicycle? Also i want to change the grips. Which ones do you suggest? Thanks.
A> Yes, the hoxton will fit this bike. The slender grips would also do very well!
Will this carrier fit on the handlebars of a fixie bike? How far is the distance of the middle of the handlebar bracket to the bottom of the basket?
> The basket can positioned at multiple heights, at its highest (farthest from the your tyre) the bottom of the basket hangs 10cm below where it is attached at the bracket.
What colour leather is used for the handle on the HOXTON basket?
I would like to purchase the basket along with the matching Plump leather grips. Which color grips do you suggest I buy for both items to match?
I can't seem to get the mounting mechanism tight enough. The basket will slide down when I put anything in it. I don't understand what the issue is, but this just seems like a bad design.
A> The Klick Fix system has a wire that must be installed properly to prevent this. You should bring it to your dealer, there is not a design flaw.
If you have a question and desire a timely response, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or just simply post to our Facebook wall at www.facebook.com/Brooks.England. Our antiquated shop comments section does not lend itself to frequent updating.
Can this bascket be used with a Brompton bike?
A> Well, basically the answer is yes, but we believe the trouble will arise with the folding of said bike.
Can the HOXTON Wire Basket be mounted on a rear rack, as a set of panniers would be mounted?
A> Not without custom attachments, we're afraid.
I have just purchased the hoxton wire basket with klickfix ... can you please tell me how much weight this can bear?
A > The recommended carrying weight is defined by the attachment bracket, and is in this case is rated at 7kg.
Can the Hoxton basket be fitted on the front of a Pashley Roadster? I ask because if it's too deep it may well obstruct the lighting mounted just above the front mudguard.
A> Please visit a Brooks Dealer of Excellence for proper fit, it would be very hard for me to answer this question over email.
