Bicycling | 10 Best Bike Baskets for Hauling (Almost) Anything
But before you buy, you should know what kind of basket best serves your needs. If your primary mission consists only of the occasional run to the corner store, you don’t need a gaping, rear-mounted, option like the Blackburn Local Basket. A sleeker basket like the MEIEM Wicker Bike Basket or the Axiom Fresh Mesh would get the job done. The weight of the cargo is also something to consider—if you’re hauling more than 15 pounds, you should look at a rear basket, like the Blackburn Local or Sunlite Rack Top Wire Basket, because the back of your bike can support more weight without affecting bike handling as significantly.

Bicycling | The Best Bikes for College Students
Unless you have a legit reason to bring a car with you to school, chances are good the only vehicle you need on your college campus this year is a bicycle. The average college campus is all-inclusive or close to downtown, meaning everything you need access to is within walking—and riding—distance. After all, having a car on campus means finding parking, paying for gas, and maybe even using it late night when it might not be the best idea. Plus, many colleges don’t allow first-year students to keep a car on campus, anyway. So there’s that. We rounded up 10 affordable and reliable bikes to help you cut travel time between classes, run errands faster, and maybe even meet new friends—all while keeping that freshman 15 at bay. Check out quick hits below of five of our top choices or scroll deeper for more in-depth reviews of these and other options, plus buying advice.

Buzzfeed | 41 Practical Father's Day Gifts Outdoorsy Dads Will Love
Promising review: "This is a nice affordable single speed bike! I bought this bike mainly for short commutes and leisurely rides. I have had many steel framed single speeds and fixed gear bikes over the years, and out of the box this is my favorite so far. On every other reasonably priced/mid range single speed I've had, I ended up having to replace the stock tubes and tires among other things, to make it actually ride-able. This was not the case here. Also, the 4130 line is MUCH lighter than comparably priced single speeds I've had from various manufacturers."
