Why handlebar free?
Bicycle handlebar baskets are not designed to carry pets, but just meant to put a bag or box into it. Imagine to be transported in something that continuously swings left and right.
PS. this applies only to the Britch
Why platform supported?
If the basket is not platform supported the bottom sags which gives a nauseous feeling. So, a sagging basket on the handlebar is a double whammy for nausea.
The cozy Cocoon is your small dog’s new urban retreat. The Cocoon can be attached to the front or rear of your bicycle as a bicycle basket, and once safely positioned on the Britch or rack adapter, your dog can have a front row seat for all of the adventuring that lies ahead. Or, take an afternoon road trip up a winding highway as car seat or even much farther adventure as in cabin airline carrier.
The bicycle connection of the carrier is unique as it platform supported, which is necessary for any pooch over 8 lbs. Also the Britch as a bicycle frame extension does not move with the handlebar, which ensure a stable ride.
