    Yessir. The internet was way too confusing, so I just bought directly from Pedal Cyclery here in Victoria. Easy to fit, and comes with fat rubber shims if you want to fit it to older and skinnier bars.... which you presumably do not!

    partsdepartment,

    A big consideration for me for a future purchaseis ease of fitting and removal of the bag itself. Rolling the top of my Terra Rosa bag and clipping it can be a little fiddly, but the bag is huge. If I were buying again, ease of removal would be a big consideration. I unfortunately cannot comment on using the QR skewers as I actually use the front braze-ons, but plenty of people use the QR with no issues AFAIK.

    I've been using an old Chrome messenger bag and a cheap cargo net in a Kmart basket ziptied to a VO Rando rack with no issues.

    My girlfriend and i are planning on making some basket-specific bags similar to the Sackville Shopsac, probably using some velcro straps to secure whilst riding and easy on and off while shopping.

    I've been playing with a few prototype things lately and think that velcro is the most secure and least annoying out of most of the fixing types (snaps/hardware/webbing etc).

    Velcro™ has a limited life before it loses its stickiness. It can only be stuck together and pulled apart so many times.

    Maybe integrate a clip system into the bag, as in clips attached to the bag via elastic cords?

    IMO Velcro for a basket bag would be totally fine. It definitely has a lifespan but it also doesn't need to be super tight when it's already in a basket.

    I've bought a few options to test what works best, especially as the purpose is to make it a bit more readily detachable for shopping/commuting etc.

    Thanks for the input!
