We are Basil. We like to see you enjoy riding your bicycle, which is why we make beautiful and functional bicycle accessories that encourage you to cycle more often. Because cycling is healthy and gives you a daily dose of happiness and exercise.
It all started 40 years ago, when Ine van Dam walked into the bicycle shop of Nico van Balveren. She was looking for a wicker basket for her bicycle. Nico developed such a basket and made Ine very happy. And the most important thing was: because of that basket she enjoyed her bike rides even more.
Not a whole lot has changed in our family business since that time. Our passion is devising products that make bicycling more attractive and enjoyable. And we always take your wishes into account.
We want to understand why and when you ride your bicycle. And also why en when you don’t. We learn from that, every single day. We combine this information with our sense of quality, style and functionality. Together we can spread cycling joy. Will you join us?
