At Curbside we work in this thing called the bike industry and that means we're part of conversations that we honestly try not to expose our customers to. Our industry is one that often treats city cyclists (and especially women) with disdain, and that means pages of thoughtless products in our catalogs that don't look good or work well. Thank goodness for the Dutch, and thank goodness for Basil. We're are the company that brought Basil to North America and we love them for their upmarket designs (they work with real fashion designers!), their quality (the clips that attach the bags to bikes are quite clever and obscenely strong), and the price (because a million Dutch people buy bike bags, Basil has reached a scalability no other company can dream of). Like Basil, we believe cycling is beautiful, and that means taking the care to make well-designed products that don't break the bank, and best of all, don't break either.
