Thought I’d mention another idea I had, though this one is not really directed at TFL.
Some boris bikers here have mentioned the lack of space to store stuff in the front rack of the bikes. Most cyclists I’ve seen get round this by carrying a rucksack or shoulder bag, but these can become sweaty against the back, sore on the shoulder, and ungainly if you prefer to avoid wearing lots of kit as you cycle (it’s *so* liberating!).
It can’t be beyond the imagination of some equipment suppliers to manufacture a special front basket or pannier that hooks over the top of the existing rack. It could be designed not to obscure the front light, incorporate its own lighting, or have a means of attaching lights.
I’m going for a quick lie-down now!
