Twisted Throttle pelican setup for Laptop Commute

Post by ohpyramids » Fri Oct 11, 2013 8:39 pm

I ride to work every day and am looking for a way to secure my laptop and hard drives in case of an accident. Right now I am using a Kreiga r20 backpack secured to the rack via cargo net. If I ever go down with this setup, my laptop will have basically no protection, and I will be very bummed.

I've been looking for a quick release pelican top case mount. I think I found one at Twisted Throttle.

The video got me excited about their top box system. Anyone have experience with it on the SMT?

I emailed them to see if its possible to install it on a pelican 1450 instead of the iM2600.

Sure, that is possible.

You would just need the toprack:

Plus the adapter kit that attaches to the toprack and turns the Pelican into a quick-lock case (this will work with the 1450), item # PEL.105 (choose the alu-rack option in drop-down on this page):
