    Sign the cheque and pick up an EVOC one. They are quite good and of exceptional quality.

    i have the dakine and i felt it is very bulky; looking at the evoc i think it is much better in terms of design (bike stays upright with proper placement of the forks)

    I have flown around a lot with my V10 in the Evoc. I am very happy with it, it has held up to the abuse of the TSA and baggage apes quite well. However, Evoc says you can leave your rotors on the wheels, but I take mine off and store them in the internal pouch.

    i too recomend the evoc bag... my brother and i have used them for the last 3 years, they make travelling with bikes much easier, the only downside is the weight. 7kg.
    if you dont want to pay the high price of the evoc. check out chainreactions copy of it, at a fraction of the cost.

    Hahaha, Damn right it won't! I was more tired than I thought when I responded to that :P At the time I thought he was talking about a side bag haha. I didnt think anything of it either cause people ask some dumb as-s questions on here, and I obviously give some ridiculous answers haha.

    What other bags compare to the EVOC?

    I started out with the 699. It is to small for a DH bike. I had to take the fork, bars, stem, rear shock, and the crank off crank, etc... And even then i had to sit on it just to get it closed. And I think it may weigh more than the EVOC as well (not 100% sure on that). I would recommend looking at chainreactioncycles for the EVOC, free shipping and the best price I could find.

    you could even get the crc copy of the evoc for less than half the price of an evoc bag.

    A hockey/ goalie bag from a used sporting goods store topped with a foam mattress cover. It will also save you from airline fees.

    ok on further research it would appear that crc have stopped selling their version of the evoc bag,, i dont know whats happend, i can only assume evoc must have done somthing as it was pretty much an exact carbon copy but sold at 100 quid.
    i know when we got our evocs a few years back, ( the mk1 bag back in 2010) evoc told crc they had to stop selling them so cheaply or they would stop supplying them, hence why they went from 230quid back to 300. i can only assume somthing similar has happend with the copy version crc were selling.

    Dayum, yeah I'm lucky I managed to get a CRC one. They weren't exactly the same, just very similar to the evoc one's. Mine lasted a trip to france and back last year with no real damage. My mate also had the cheap 60 CRC and that held up equally as well, but it didn't have the same protection as the bigger, heavier EVOC/CRC ones.

    I have a Thule one, I haven't had to use it in a long while-but it worked when I needed it.

    What kind of airline fees are we talking to take a bike on a plane? I flew to SLC around Christmas time and took my skis/boots and the package was $25 to check.
