If you spend any time on a bike, in either Portland or Seattle, you will find cyclists
using their rear racks to support pannier "oyster buckets"...but I had no idea that they were paying out Eighty Bucks for them!!!

Please note that the buckets and bags listed all weigh about the same as the Wald Folders.

OMG!!! I can't believe people are spending that kind of money for what are basically just two 5-gallon pickle buckets. In addition, although the buckets weight about 5 lbs each (about the same as Wald Baskets) they are waterproof inside so that any water that accumulates inside them will add to that weight. At about 10lbs per gallon! LOL

Pickle buckets, lol...ya gotta use the Tidy Cats litter buckets with the good lids.



The two Wald Folding Baskets TOGETHER only weigh in at the 5 pound mark.

I wanted point out that fact..

Don't buy the Wald Folding rear baskets in the "Chrome Plated" finish. They are more of
a cadmium plating and it quickly changes to a very dull gray color. Buy the black powder
coated ones.

Because I will wind up with a root-beer brown Schwinn, I will buy the black ones and paint
them with Fusion brown paint.

And then add the bags shown in this link:

If the bags don't come with drains holes in the bottoms, they will get grommets.

What the baskets look like on a mtb:
