The patented steel mount is the most secure and stable on the market.

Secure. No sway.
Rock solid.

Mounting Hooks
Mounting Hooks

These hooks are where you mount the basket to your bike. They hook into the basket frame to provide great stability.

Adjustable
Adjustable!

The mount can be easily adjusted up and down so that it can fit almost any bike. Simply untighten these screws (don't remove completely) and slide the adjustable part up or down until the mount is making perfect contact with your bike's gooseneck. Then, tighten the screws all the way to secure.

Stabilizer Bar
Stabilizer Bar

The stabilizer is the part that touches your bike's gooseneck to provide maximum stability. Please ensure that your stabilizer bar is touching the gooseneck of your bike, otherwise the basket will dip and touch your front wheel.

Rubber Bushings
Rubber Bushings

The rubber bushings allow the mount to attach to your bike's handlebars without scratching or damaging your bike's handlebars. Please be extra careful when fastening the mount to bikes made out of carbon fibre, as they are lighter and can be damaged easier than aluminum.

If you're unsure whether you have an aluminum or carbon fibre frame, check your bike's model number and refer to the owners guide on your bike's manufacturer's website. Rule of thumb, the more expensive the bike, the more likely it will have a carbon fibre frame.

Great for road bikes!

The Pet-Pilot and Pet-Pilot "MAX" are both great choices for road bikes, or commuter bike (basically, bikes you would take on a paved surface.

Road bikes generally have higher handlebars, and smaller tires and that provides great clearance between the basket and the front wheel.

The Pet-Pilot can also be used on large mountain bikes, with large treaded tires for rough terrain. However, please pay special attention to the mounting instructions. The mount can be adjusted to fit your bike, and in some situations, you may need to adjust your handlebars higher to provide more clearance between the basket and your front wheel.

Simply put, the Pet-Pilot is great for a wide range of bikes, from big to medium sized, road bikes or mountain bikes.

A few words from our customers.

The new Pet Pilot MAX is fantastic.

I just received mine today. It is larger and very sturdy with plenty of room for Mattie my Malti-Poo.

There is no other product out there to compare with this one folks. Well designed, well made, plenty of room and simply excellent. I want everyone to know I have nothing to do with the company. I am a truthful Christian believer that just loves this product so much.

Well worth the bucks - Excellent Basket!

I was a bit worried about these baskets. First the price - they are at least double a regular basket. But a regular basket doesn't come with a liner or harness clips and they aren't deep enough and never really work properly for your dog. So break the piggy bank and spring for a decent basket - you won't be sorry. EXCELLENT basket.

Next - the install. Would they be sturdy enough for my pup? Would I be able to mount them with the tangle of cords and controls for my ebike? The install was fairly easy but I did have to move the ebike controls a bit. The instructions mention moving the sliding support bar up or down until it comes in contact with the frame. That must be a typo because the sliding bar can never contact the bike's frame and you wouldn't want it rubbing and scratching on the frame anyway. The support bar rests on the underside of the handle bars and locks the basket solidly in place. Other than that bit of install head scratching the rest of the install was simple as can be. The mechanism to connect the basket to the mount is ingenious.

The basket is rock solid on the bike. My little guy (Zander) was very secure in the basket. He's a 12lb Biewer Terrier and had lots of room. The wife has a 4lb Biewer and was swimming in plenty of space. The built in clips attached to the pup's harness and kept them safe and secure. They both really enjoyed the ride. The basket comes with plastic inserts to change the accent colors around the basket. That's a nice touch. I don't think I'd go much past 15lbs for your pup but provided you use the basket as intended you really aren't going to find a nicer basket for your small dog.

Easy to Install, Very Stable, Excellent Design

Excellent service Amazon, this product arrived in New Zealand in 6 days from order. Very easy to install on my bike. I was concerned having big 29 inch wheels and front suspension on my bike that the basket would rub on the tyre, it did at first but a slight alteration and now I have plenty of clearance.
Also having the weight over the handle bars concerned me at first so I practiced with a dog roll in the basket first before putting the dog in. After 2 brief sessions (biking around the house) I started with the dog. She was great, on the first ride she tried lunging after birds but we quickly got that sorted. Now she curls up and loves watching out her ‘window’ front air vent. Now I don’t even notice the extra weight at all.

The basket is very stable with NO sway or movement at all, the 2 point safety harness is excellent. Everything about this basket is very well thought out, there simply is nothing that could be done to improve it. My dog, a chihuahua is equally happy and the basket is perfect for her small size of 2.4 kg.

Excellent Design

Tried another basket - this one is SO MUCH better! Solid, well constructed and thought out. I read a larger model is coming - I might upgrade to give my "Snoopy" more room when it comes out.

Sturdy Mounting System

Well built, sturdy mounting systems. Installs in a few minutes with a screw driver. My dog is an 18 pound mixed breed. She fits, but she fills the basket. It is perfect for our other dog (Yorkie). Got product at a fair price.

New Found Freedom!

Pet Pilot is worth every penny! Designed well and very sturdy. The attaching and locking mechanisms are ingenious and easy to use! The leash attachment is secured from two sides, instead of one. From the very first time, Lulu, a 10 pound Malti-poo, felt safe and comfortable. She loves her new ride! She says, "Best thing since liver treats!" Mommy likes that the grey inserts match her bike!

Lightweight yet very strong and sturdy - great purchase !

So far this basket has worked great for our shih tzu who is about 15.5 lbs. Since this weight is over the recommended weight I was a bit concerned if it would hold up. We’ve been using it for a few weeks and it’s been perfect. The basket hasn’t buckled or bent in any way and Dusty fits perfectly inside. She loves to ride in this basket. We’ve only gone about 5-6 miles each time yet she appears to be loving the ride and the view. Despite this basket being more costly than other highly reviewed baskets, this has been a great investment and I don’t regret it in the least. Plus the basket is lighter weight which is good because it does take some getting used to the weight of the dog and basket while steering - a minor adjustment but an adjustment that needs to be considered.

This purchase is great because now we can take our dog with us on our longer rides instead of leaving her at home.

Pet Pilot dog basket review

Works Great !

This is pretty sturdy. My dog is 17 pounds, and poodle long-legged. (It recommends using for short-legged dogs.). He's pushing the top of the weight limit for sure. a short-legged dog could probably stand in it. I harness him in and make him sit. Since he's brilliant and adorable :), he caught on within minutes and now sits back as if in a convertible and enjoys the ride. He's not at all nervous, which surprised me a little. watching him cracks me up. It's actually quite fun.

My Fur Baby Loves it !

Fur Baby Loves it!

Wow. I am amazed by the quality. We searched and searched and finally decided on this one. The basket is very sturdy, and it is quit easy to install. To take the basket off off the bracket is also very easy and clever. My mini dachshund is quite long so we have to positioned him diagonally and he barely just fit. The harness inside the basket is also a great safety feature. The baskets has other small pockets for storage. The only thing I can think of for improvement is a spot for the safety light to mount onto the basket. Because the basket takes up a good amount of space of the Bike handle bar, I don't have any room for my safety light. But really, I am not complaining I love the basket.

Built Well!

This is really built well, love the way it hooks in so quickly.
Nice going with this product.

So today we were able to attach it to the bike, I'll have to say it's well thought out when they built this. Here is a picture of Bentley in his new found freedom...Bentley is a 10-lb toy fox terrier.

The only modification that I will make for it this afternoon is adding some cardboard to the insides of the basket under the sherpa liner & velcro top flap, just to make it more comfortable for the passenger. This is a metal basket and I could see after an hour of the pet leaning up against the sides it would probably start to hurt. I think the cardboard should do the trick. The bottom of the basket sits about two-to-three inches above the front tire. I did not see it hit the front tire at all when going over a large bump.

Love this product and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting their best friend along for the ride. :)

Very easy to install. Love that it is metal instead of plastic. My 12-14 lb Cavapoo is a little talI so I had to get a heavy duty carabiner to extend the leash. I think I need wider handlebars to compensate the weight (or just get used to having a basket on the bars). Overall I am glad I chose this basket. Also, because it is removable so without my dog I can go to market and take off the basket to shop.

FAQ's

Show Questions

How much weight will the basket hold?

We specifically steered away from publishing a maximum weight for the Pet-Pilot. We have heard from many customers with 16-lb small dogs that said their dog fit perfectly.... while others with 13-lb dogs said their dog was too big.
Please look closely at the pictures in the customer gallery, look at the measurements of the top opening (14"x 9"). Bottom line about weight - if you dog fits, then the steel frame and mount will support your dog.

Do you sell brackets separately?

We do sell brackets separately! They work great for a second bicycle! Click on the buy options button on this page to purchase.

Will this mount fit on any bike handlebars??

Great question. We partenered with a bicycle manufacturer to ensure that the mount we chose for our Pet Pilot would fit as many bicycle handlebar styles as possible. There are 2 settings for the handlebar clamp - which will adapt to almost any thickness. Additionally -- there is a 2 inch gap between the 2 clamps, so you will need to make sure the 2 inch gap is sufficient to clamp the mount on either side of your bikes goosneck (the area where your bikes handlebars clamp to the bike frame).

Is it safe to have my small dog in a front bicycle basket?

We have taken extra measures during the design and manufacturing to ensure the safety of the Pet-Pilot. Please keep in mind that anytime you have additional weight on the front of your bicycle the steering, handling and braking characteristics will change a little. Also, if you haven't ridden a bicycle in a while, we recommend going for a short ride to help you get comfortable again before loading the Pet-Pilot with your precious cargo.

  • Extra thick - steel handlebar attachment.
  • Steel wire frame basket that "locks" into the handlebar attachment.
  • All steel has a smooth powder coated finish to resist rust
  • Safety Strap with 2 attachment points and a chrome clasp.
  • Large front air vent.
  • Padded floor with soft, fuzzy sherpa fabric interior.

Other models include a rain cover, how come you don't?

We actually discussed this and decided the rain cover was just too gimicky. Most of the customers we have talked to over the last few years only go for a bike ride with their pet on nice, sunny days. We allocated our design dollars to other, more important areas, such as the solid steel frame and patented handlebar mount.
