No assembly instructions, parts don't fit well

I bought it for the new bike, but I will wait with mounting it as no instructions were provided in my parcel. On the pictures on the site, the red release button is once on top and once on the bottom, so how should it be? Plastic parts don't fit well enough with the metal basket and it can be screwed together only on one side as then the other side stands out!. It looks like the mount comes from one type of basket and a different basket was added to it with someone hoping it would fit. Well, it doesn't. I wish Decathlon was open, so I could just come and return this.

Bike basket

Great buy. Meets my needs exactly. Holds rainwear drink bottle. I Pod I phone and I have used it for light shopping also I use a head torch and attach my other bike light to the basket so I am well lit up at front

2 different baskets in the 7 pictures

Sturdy enough, have only attached to bike atm. Was looking for the light attachment, then went back to decathlon pics and they is clearly 2 different baskets being shown

Installation issues

How do you install this basket? The instructions are not complete. It is not describing how you need to install the components on the basket itself so it can be attached to the component on the bike. It seems that the screws are too short? Can you help?

Useful product although why the yellow?

Basket is great but only downside is the current model has a yellow grip piece on the handle instead of black which is quite ugly and unnecessary. Stick to black guys it’s much smarter! Also the attachments have big red buttons which again could have been black to blend and look smarter. Designers - please take note!

Want to take the bracket off to change basket

Decided to change to another basket How do you remove the bracket ? What tools are needed ?


Great little basket, easy to fit and ideal to carry the refreshments in.

Attachment snapped after 3 weeks of use

I was really happy with the basket when I first fitted it onto my bike. But three weeks later, the c-shaped plastic bar that hooks around the bike's handlebar stem snapped, rendering the whole basket unusable. I would not recommend this basket, the attachment is weak and badly designed.

I'm sorry to read that the bracket has snapped. Please return it to us or contact our customer services team if you feel the item is faulty.

where's the video showing how to install the baske

Perhaps I'm missing something blindingly obvious, but I can't for the life of me work out how the various components should be arranged for optimal attachment to my bike. Why isn't there an instructional video? Pease rectify Decathlon.

Thank you for your question regarding the bike basket. Indeed, I agree that an instructional film would be useful and I will feed this back to the team at Decathlon Cycles in order to get one made.

I have found this film which demonstrates how to use the basket as well as a zoom on the bracket. I hope that this will suffice for the time being:


Peter Lazarus, National Cycling Manager, DECATHLON

Nice basket. Does what it needs to do which is carry small items. The guys at Decathlon fixed it onto the bike. Great service.

Front bike pannier basket

Well thought out, useful and well priced. Does everything you want it to do and is cleverly designed so that, for example, lights can be fitted to it.
