Awesome idea.

Maybe just some constructive criticism.

You may find the bracket cracking and breaking at the point indicated below, especially on bike that do a lot of gravel.  As you have designed it the lower portion of the bracket with the other 2 holes actually serves no purpose.

Maybe widen that area of the bracket toward the inside, and do away with the slot you have running from the hole.

I am in the process of testing and making sure that its sturdy enough. It's 5mm mild steel and is realy sturdy, I don't think fatigue and cracking should be a problem. As mild steel has a bit of flex in it, unlike stainless.
Also there isn't much more space for going thicker, but I will definitely look into widening it at the hole. The slots are just for saving on piercing when lasercutting.

I appreciate the criticism!

I'm interested in one of those Mad777Max.

Cool, I have another order aswell. Will see if there is more interest toward the end of the week and I will get an order going.
Where are you situated?
