This was my first attempt at packing the bike into the travel case and I was hoping it was going to fit. It took a couple of hours but I managed to get everything in and packed nicely. It will become easier with practice and next time all the frame protecters will have already been cut and labled so I am hoping to do the whole procedure in about an hour. Because my bike is so big ( I am 6' 4" ) I had to remove the forks and the crankset. With smaller frames this wouldn't be nec
We arrived safely back from L.A. this morning and the bike case was a dream to deal with. Checking the bike in with the normal sized baggage, and the convenience of the case being heaps smaller than a bike box, meant for less hassle moving around busy airport terminals. The total weight for the case with the bike packed including my cycling shoes and all the bikes accessories was 20.5 kg. You are allowed 23kg on flights to and from America so well under that. This means I can fit my cycling clothes in as well.
