Rocket-Rail, the Accessory Mount Idea that Never Took Off [Photo Gallery]
The Rocket-Rail is a CNC-machined thick aluminium blade which is to be mounted on the top ends of the fork, provided you ride a bike with clip-on bars. It comes with a ball mount which can accommodate a ton of bike-oriented accessories, and since the surface is really generous, other specific mounts can also be installed.
This idea is really nice, because it provides ample possibilities for mounting a lot of devices and is easy to install (or remove, for safety purposes, without unloading tall gadgets).
We could have gone for it even with the estimated price of $60-80 (€), but James W. Kondrat, its creator asked for a whopping public funding of $150k (€). Which proved fatal to the project, of course. However, maybe he could do some custom Rocket-Rail for interested customers, in case you drop him a line.
