    Looks sweet, but they need some different handlebar options (different bends) for it to be comfortable.

    pretty sweet, I wonder how strong of a stem clamp you would need to keep it from swinging over time, especially under a heavy load. I would be worried about stripping the threads on an aluminum stem. Still. . . I want one.

    Just use two stems/clamps.

    Somewhere above 20 pounds mounted that high becomes a stability issue depending on fork trail. A little emery paper acts as a poor mans set of splines grreatly inhibiting rotation. YMMV

    Speaking of splines, the bar appears to have them already.

    The load will be low, not throwing stability off much. Not as low as low-riders, but as low as any porteur rack. It matters where the weight is, not where it's attached.

    The stem clamp is plenty strong enough to hold my body weight with the added leverage of swept back bars. I feel confident about the design withstanding some abuse.

    This origin 8 Cargo Unit looks like a deeper and narrower version of the Copenhagen Bike Porter (were they the first to do this?)

    BIKES!
