Can you put a basket on a road bike?
Baskets can carry loads on the front and/or back of your bicycle. Rear baskets are usually mounted on either side of the rear wheel. They can carry tall loads, as they have no lid.
Can you put a pannier rack on a road bike?
The short answer is yes, it is possible to turn your road bike into a touring bike. You can mount panniers on your road bike, regardless if the frame has no eyelets to attach a rack.
How do I choose a bike pannier rack?
There are different options for materials that pannier racks are normally made from these include:
- Aluminum racks : lighter, less durable, and can’t be fixed if they break.

- Steel racks: heavy but more durable, can be fixed.
Do pannier racks fit all bikes?
With the right equipment you can fit panniers to a bike that isn’t designed to take them.

Many road and mountain bikes don’t.
