    best bike case/bag

    Any suggestions on the best case or bag to use for travel on airlines? Anyone ever use the soft sided cases?

    They have a cheap hard sided case that i have used for several years for my road bike. It works great for periodic trips. I assume that a SS will fit in it. I'd stay away from soft sided bags. It just cannot be a good idea.

    Heavy but strong and big, lots of room for other geat. Thought of cardboard boxes, but glad I didn't go that route. Itching to use them again.

    Wink Trico Iron Case

    My XC bike with all my gears (helmet, hydration pack, tools, lots of riding clothes, shoes, and floor pump) fit perfectly at 69 lbs.

    With both skewers & stem removed, tires deflated, and lots of shop towels to wrap the frame, my bike is always tightly packed and reaches its destinations as if it never left home.
