Lexco Becomes a Basket Case

Norridge, Illinois
Lexco Becomes a Basket Case

A-tisket, a-tasket lots of high-quality Axiom wire baskets. . . and all distributed by Lexco.

Axiom's newest edition to its wire basket line-up, the QR Front Alloy Mesh'R, combines style, strength and light weight for convenient on and off-bike use. The Mesh'R features vinyl coated alloy mesh construction and a fold-away handle for carrying the basket when off the bike. In addition, the basket attaches to a bike's handlebars with Axiom's highly-touted KWIX Fix mounting system.

Other Axiom handlebar-mounted wire baskets include the QR Mesh Utility Basket and the QR 6061 Alloy Basket. Both feature a carry handle for off-bike use and quick handlebar attachment and detachment.

The Axiom rear basket line includes the QR Mesh Rear Grocery Basket with its coated steel mesh construction and spring-loaded universal rack attachment system; the QR Urban Grocery Basket, made from tubular 6061 T6 aluminum and real wood slats; and the Folding Rear Pannier Basket that folds flat on the bike when not in use.

"With the price of gas continuing to climb more and more people are using their bikes to run errands like trips to the grocery or the gym, so bicycle dealers are seeing an up-tick in basket sales," says Karen Peterson of Lexco. "The Axiom baskets are known for their quality construction, and easy-on, easy-off feature. IBDs really love them."

In addition to wire baskets, Lexco carries four Axiom wicker baskets. The line includes the QR Wicket Basket made of heavyweight woven rattan; QR Faux Wicker Handlebar Basket with its faux wicker construction of durable steel; the Faux Wicker Nano Front Basket that weighs in at a paltry 628 grams; and the QR Faux Wicker Rear Grocery Basket which boasts a carry handle for off-bike use and Axiom's exclusive spring-loaded universal rack attachment system.

Says Jeff Nyhaug of Norco, producers of the Axiom basket line: "Lexco Bike distributes an extensive assortment of both our faux wicker, metal mesh, as well as alloy baskets, not simply the metal variety, most of which are quick release mounting and removal. These baskets provide both the dealer as well as the consumer solutions to their cycling carrying capacity requirements.

"With the emergence of the bicycle/cycling as both a utilitarian vehicle, as well for lifestyle and enjoyment purpose this means we find that people's traditional carrying needs have changed back to traditional means: i.e baskets are in vogue once again! Gas prices, as well as those individuals who want to reduce their own ecological and environmental carbon imprint and choosing alternatives to their transportation requirements whether for shopping, work, school, or simply for pleasure purposes, Axiom baskets provide the answers and solutions for your cycling carrying capacity needs."

The full line of Axiom baskets can be found in Lexco's free 2008 Catalog. For details, call Lexco toll-free at (800) 626-6556.
