    Packing to Fly

    I have a couple of trips planned for the summer and will need to pack our Durances. We have Iron Cases. Size large and medium framed Durance with DUC32. Anyone have any tips for packing these babies? Last time I flew, was with a ML7 and the Large frame was a tight fit in the case.

    Thanks...

    Take them apart! You can unbolt the rear end off the Mono-Link for ease of packaging.
    Remove the cranks, remove the rear derailleur; hell let all of the air out of the DUC to help it compress; if you still have the dummy 24mm axle, install it and use a web strap to hold the fork compressed.

    Well, no s$$t of course I"ll take them apart. Thanks for the reply. I've packed and repacked loads of bikes but the Mavericks seem to be more complex than others. I guss its the combination fork and stem length as well as the frame size. If there are any other tips, I'd be grateful
