Brace for European Baskets.
When your dog weighs 15 pounds or more, we strongly suggest the brace. It helps support the weight and makes the steering much easier. The brace requires a minimum of 5 inches of straight handlebar right in the middle / horizontally. The hooks of the brace are 5 inches apart. (See illustration)
If your handlebar will not accommodate the brace and you are wanting to carry a heavier dog I suggest you have your local bike shop replace your handlebar with one that will support the brace (This is a routine operation for bike shops). I mount the brace on your basket before I ship it to you.
If you order the small European Market Basket to carry a dog, you will also need the brace.
The brace can be used with the following products:
