    Travel: box or bike luggage?

    I'm going to travel with my bike, a friend has a bike hardcase (serfas). I think it is better to pack the bike in there, but I also can do it in a bike box. Silly question, but what should be better?

    Use the hard shell. They are heavy and relativley hard to move about ---- BUT they protect your bike really well. Just remember all the tools you need to get the thing together when you get there -- and apart again for the return trip. I just used a Serfas case to take my bike to Europe -- extra work but worth it.

    My only problme was I didn't take a good sized wrench to get my pedals off my bike for the trip home. I had to rig my allen wrench with an adjustable wrench to get one pedal off (the other stayed on).

    have fun.
