    i have been dreaming of this for quite some time. everyone said it wouldn’t work. i am interested to hear how yours has held up? have you used in on any off road and seriously bumpy terrain? thanks,

    so far so good ryan… dirt roads, choppy pavement, etc. the bag is looped around the tombstone on the mark’s rack, and i use 1 pair of velcro straps under the rack – the magnets hold tight and keep things from bouncing around up high.

    I am interested in testing a prototype. I have had similar ideas. Looks like you have solve several of the problems with existing decaleur designs.

    Dear Mike,

    Nice job! The mechanically-interlocking magnetic bits with the push-off button are well-thought out, and a new-to-me solution to the decaleur attachment.

    Best Regards,

    Will
