Hi there :)   I sometimes search topics of interest on bike hub and came across this thread. Just to clarify. Our product is not a ripoff of anything. We were looking for a bike travel box solution for when we travel international for a while and I came across this product: https://qbicle.com.tw/product_detail.php?psn=177&names=BIKE PORTER (note this was april 2018 already) 

I inquired and actually ordered one. (mail screenshot attached) It was not exactly what I wanted and had another idea in mind. During lockdown I had time to work on my concept and came up with our box. Some people liked it and we put up a small workshop to manufacture these boxes. I did check patents, but found none conflicting. If you do some research you will see it's complete different ideas and designs, other than both being bike travel boxes of course. Been using and testing our box for some time now and work lekker...

Philip,

my apologies

I do know the bikebox from knysna is patented, but yours is similiar but different. You obviously would have seen them around, but have made a few different design improvemetns - zips are handy and it fits nicely together for stowing.

I'd like to retract my statement, hopefully no offence caused. wish you all the best with this project

happy to bump up your video

some more brand new items that came pre-dirtied from the factory....you know, for effect.

Never mind the used or new (though I have not seen new Shimano brakes with green pads) but that screw in the first image looks to be stripped...

This begs for a comment...I paid 21 in 2014 for the same bike. Yes, stocks are low but Jussie...

Unless this is the Rolex edition ...

It's just one of those things you can ask what you want if you get your price is a different story. But if anyone is keen I have a full custom 910 Scale for R50k 😂🤣

to be fair there is no visible brake dust on the calipers or on the green pad backing ... these may just have been fitted and tested in the parking lot on the bike from the looks of things....and the pricing seems fair?
