I’m loving this second hand Brompton basket, which is as simple as it is effective. It’s just a canvas bag that folds flat when closed. Carrying fruit and veg back from the allotment, you can hardly feel the extra weight on the bike. I was interested to know just how much the bike was carrying, and plonked it in the scales when I got home. Answer: 12kg, which is heavier than many models of Brompton bike!
