Help finding the Hepco Becker Pucks, etc

Azabeemerboy, can you direct me to the Hepco Becker pucks you show in you pelicans. I need those, and I cannot find them.

Or anyone else?

Thanks!

Totally bombproof, very easy to use, lockable and removeable.
AdventurePipe says that there is a break away mechanism, but until I see visuals on it and how it works it will still be second to jimjib's adel clamps. How can you go wrong with a fitty-cent mounting part that is small enough to keep a few spares "just in case". (or buy pretty much anywhere hardware is sold)

Plus folks who own a rack don't need another one (for the most part). These two rationales are more in the spirit of ricardo's thread than the "Prada" system you linked to... to steal ricardo's terminology.

One reason I bought this system is I plan to buy a Strom soon, and Adventurepipe's cases all have the same mounting system. So all I have to do is buy the Strom rack, and use the cases I have. Plus, I didn't already have a rack.

New Pelican Top Loader

Pelican 1440 Top Loader

They run a tad over 2000 cubic inches inside, or about 33L; more than double the 1430, which everyone wanted to see larger. Whoop, dere it is!


Here is one source:
http://www.pelican-case.com/1440-black.html
$124.95 ea.

I saw one application around here where the fella use that in the top bag position as the mechanism to slide the bag on and off the bike

But I want quick release in case of a dump, like jimjib's. And I would leave the handle on, just put it to the inside, for my convenience; just like the Prada-chicks in the airport!

Now if only I knew which rack was the toughest?

Those are nice looking cases. I guess with wheels on it you could pull one along behind.
