Although the Handbag Hugger is designed to be attached to the front of your bike without the Basket, I needed all the storage space I could get, and have no issue reaching for my bag - so the Wicker went back on, alongside the Hugger...
They both sat on the front of my Pashley with no problems. The Hugger attaches to the handlebar stem with two screws and bolts - a simple method which takes only minutes to do and with no mechanical skills necessary! The position of the attachment didn't interfere with the leather straps of the Basket, so no issues there at all.
The Handbag Hugger is available from Cyclechic.co.uk, and retails at £19.99.
