Nice ride! I bet she rolls real nice, and she does look classy

These are great errand-runners when those baskets are deployed!

I have a pair of 582s that I bought in 2007, secured to a Topeak Explorer rack. Followed me through 4 bikes now, extremely utilitarian

I found a pair of 1 gallon plastic cans that would slot in a single basket perfectly, came in real handy in my chinagirl days.

If you roll with them unfolded and empty, they'll make some noise and may not stay where they are. When I roll like that I just use a pair of zipties.
