Mailbox bike basket

Emma with her gorgeous yellow Schwinn is a crafty one. She mounted a steel mailbox to the rear rack of her bike.

She drilled holes in the bottom of the mailbox and ran zip ties through them to secure it to the rack. If you need directions to try this yourself, you can find them at Martha Stewart’s website.

I didn’t get a good photo of it, but Emma also has a small lock to secure the mailbox door. You can kind of see it in this photo.

In case you’re wondering, that vest was also made by Emma.

Lady Fleur also shot photos of Emma, her outfit and her bike. I’m sure you can find them at her website tomorrow or the next day. Lady Fleur will also probably post some to Silicon Valley Bike Style soon.


  1. You’ve never had to carry stuff on your bike and worried about somebody reaching into your basket to steal its contents while you stepped into the coffee shop for a bagel?
