Solvit Products Tagalong Bicycle Basket

Solvit Products sent me the Tagalong Bicycle Basket to test out.

Here’s some info:

The Deluxe Tagalong™ Pet Bicycle Basket provides the ultimate ride for your active pet. Zippered side pockets have internal compartments for sunglasses, keys, and other valuables, while additional pockets provide room to carry treats, a leash, water bottle, and more.

A unique bracket system makes it easy to take the basket on and off a bicycle in seconds with just one hand! Three-way adjustability on the bracket allow for a good fit on any bicycle, without interfering with brake cables.

A removable sunshade stows easily in its own pocket, and the adjustable safety leash ensures your pet is secure while riding. With the shoulder strap installed, the basket becomes a portable pet carrier – to and from the bike, or around town. A multi-function, blinking LED safety light is also included.

The Deluxe Tagalong™ is constructed from faux leather material with attractive styling, and is available in a pink or silver color scheme. Holds pets up to 13 lbs. The interior basket dimensions are 13.5″L x 10″W x 10.5″H; the overall dimensions of the basket including pockets are 16?L x 12?W x 11?H; and it weighs 6 lbs.

Since our doggy, Cowboy LOVES to ride bikes, we figured this product would be great to test out for the site. Priscilla is pretty lucky that she can take him to work once in a while, and why not by bike…

We installed it on my daughter’s 1980’s Free Spirit Brittany. Breanna took Cowboy around the neighborhood and he totally enjoyed the ride. He basically mellows out and relaxes.

The bag itself is pretty impressive. It has padded insides where Cowboy would sit, pockets all around for all of your doggy accessories. You can take the bag off and strap it to your shoulder iif you want. Just this evening, I rode the bike around with Cowboy while Priscilla jogged 4 miles. Cowboy was chillaxin’ in the Tagalong the whole time.

Stick around for the review!

    I own one of these. There is a strut that rests against the steering tube. When you steer the bike left and right, the strut will rub off the paint during your first use, then will start rubbing the metal thereafter. The manufacturer does not care. They say “We think the best solution is to wrap the part of your steering column that rubs against the strut with some kind of adhesive bandage, such as “moleskin”.”

    We also recently purchased the Solvit Tagalong and had a similar issue as Harvey above–be careful with this carrier with either larger pets or a very nice bike…
