A major function of a bike is to carry stuff, but where seats are built in, baskets and carriers are usually aftermarket add-ons. But just like every car has a trunk, every bike should have some way of carrying your groceries home. That is why the Bike Porter, designed by Danish designers Goodmorning Technology is so cool. Anything that makes a bike more useful is a good green step forward.
It replaces your normal handlebars with a permanent basket that becomes part of your bike.
It makes more sense on this full size bike than it would on the folder shown at the top, where it would probably screw up the folding, but this is such a simple and logical idea.
