    Anybody ever see a KM with a beer basket on the front?

    I got a used Km on the way in the mail and going to turn it into my commuter. Any pics or infor would be appreciated.

    Sorry, no pics but I ran one of these giant Wald baskets when I had a KM:

    Yep, no problem at all.

    I was on an XL frame with some spacers under my stem so the basket titled down a fair bit. I ended up running a second stem underneath, with a cut-down handlebar (about 6-8 inches wide) to hold the rack, gave more room for the brake cables as well.

    I put the Minoura front rack on my Big Dummy. It's a little shorter but I made it work just fine. The upper bracket is going to take some bending and tweaking. The lower arms to clear the disc brakes takes a little maneuvering but not too bad. Super stable and strong. It also holds pizzas just great.

    Bought a bike on CL a few weeks ago that had a nice integrated bar/basket combo that'll be on my KM soon.
