I was ready to buy a couple and bolt them to an SW-Motech quick release rack, but I like your design much better. I'll be waiting....
The new 1430's are too small capacity for the majority of the market, and they are very wide at the top and narrow at the bottom due to the large draft angle. Too heavy too, and too much material to remove off the back of the case to make a bracket fit. Not very suitable for Caribou luggage.
