Load up and take off.
Front baskets are convenient because of their location. The Portland Design Works Takeout Basket easily attaches to 25.4 through 31.8mm handlebars with the included hardware. This makes it compatible with most city bikes, even ones with a suspension fork.
The Takeout Basket features an eyelet for light brackets and it has a spot on the front for a u-lock. It also comes with a waterproof roll top bag that clips securely to the rack's lightweight alloy tubes. The basket measures 155 x 255 x 105mm, which just happens to conveniently hold a six pack of your favorite beverage.

Here's an instructional vid from the friendly crew over at PDW for installing your basket.
Install - then go find some sweet sweet takeout.
Nice Rack, Seriously.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
its a little on the pricey side of things, but with all PDW gear, you get what you pay for. this is a super sturdy front rack, installation was a little onerous due to the anti-roll bracket- it can be in a few different orientations to adjust the angle of the basket in relation to your stem, but you only have to install it once so no big deal. the roll-top waterproof bag is very well made, but i usually just rock the naked rack unless its poor weather. the U-lock holder is perfect size for 99% of U-locks and there is a 4mm fine thread eyelet to fix a headlamp on the non-drive side of the basket, which is real nice as the mounting hardware pretty much takes up all your bar clamp area. it has a perfect balance of form and function. looks real good holding some delicious curry or a sixer of the oat soda.
