It's cold outside where I live. Not traditional Boston cold from what I hear, I have only lived here for about a year now, more Climate Change kind of cold. I hear that temperatures around freezing here are pretty mild when compared to years gone by. It is winter however and reader Matthew submitted a chilly hack. Enjoy.

I have had a bike rack in the shed for a while so all I needed was a basket to go with it. The inspiration for making a basket came from similar storage hacks on your site.
The basket was constructed using two old fridge freezer drawers and connecting them together. I only had to remove one wire section from the deeper drawer using a hacksaw and using a bit of force they were joined together to create a basket.
An old seat post clamp was used to clamp the basket to the bike rack. Additionally a couple of nuts of bolts and a few cable ties were used to complete the fixings. The finishing touches were rear reflectors and lights on the rear of the basket.
