Has anyone found a bag or basket that fits well into the CaBi basket and stays in place and is easily attachable/detachable? For lunch I sometimes go to the grocery store to pick up some fruits, and if there was a basket that could hold my apples and bananas without crushing them, I'd be happy.

I remember at the CaBi celebration by Nats stadium there was a "paperboy" event, and they had some cardboard boxes in the basket that seemed to fit well. Any idea what those were?

If there isn't something already made for these bikes' baskets that is sturdy and easily removeable, it seems a good way to make a buck (or million), considering how many of these bikes are around the world :D

Thanks,

You could try posting your question on the Capital Bikeshare facebook page--there are lots of creative people who read that.

FYI--I believe that the paperboy boxes you're remembering were from the packaging used in large printer/copier toner boxes (the rigid pieces that attach to the ends of the toner to keep them from rattling around during shipping).

Thanks for the suggestion to post to Facebook and the toner box info. Cheers,
