    Need Dh Bike Bag For Airline Asap......

    Dakine is sold out and that is the one I want. I'll be transporting a V10, so it will have a 150mm spacing. Does anyone make a transport case that will fit a DH bike, or any online stores that will have Dakine's?

    I used a Trico Ironcase for my (size small) Morewood Izimu. 150mm spacing. Marz 66 on the front.

    I think the large frame would have fit just fine. I had room to spare.

    You can probably rent an Ironcase from a bike shop. I know you can in San Diego.

    I removed the fork and derailleur, used a long bolt with 3 wingnuts and washers to keep the rear dropouts from compressing, ziptied all loose parts to something secure (like handlebars to the frame), and wrapped everything (all metal surfaces) in packing foam.

    The TSA loves to open the cases and you never know how they will put things back in there.

    Let me know if you need more info. Hope this helps.
