I know the idea of a bar-mounted cross-bar is not new. Of course!
I'm just saying that Italrally seems to have some clamps that are flat out copies of the ones I designed. The shape, angles and dimensions are exactly the same. Even the machining detail is the same. Someone bought a set from either me or Renazco and copied them, that is obvious. It is just bad form to copy someone else's stuff exactly. Have some respect and do your own work.
We worked hard to make the bend and the dimensions exactly right, going through several different versions.
Being lazy and copying someone else's work invites bad luck, in my book. If that's a broken rib, so be it.
