    Tranny in a Box (x-post from ibis)

    Packed up my tranny into a box getting ready to fly into Tucson for SSUSA this weekend...

    Had a custom coreagated plastic box made in 26"x24"x12" so it shouldn't have any oversize baggage charges... Link to place that made the box was $45 + ship and should hopefully last a few trips...

    Here's a few pic's this is a large tranny, fixed, and rigid.... might be even a more tight fit with a suss fork and dangly bits on the bike but i think still quite doable...

    That is awesome. Being plastic, there isn't the concern with moisture!

    Are your wheels just sitting on one another, or is there packing material in between?

    I was reading how they break down very easily. Been looking at getting that frame - the cost though......the cost. Your container look great!

    $1400 for a frame is probably more than I will ever spend, but as carbon frames go it is actually really good

    I love that they haven't done a 29" version of that frame.

    Nice added feature of that frame. I have the anti-set up for SSUSA. 6lbs steel frame, 140mm fork. one similarity is that it shares the wheel size.

    Can't wait for the suffering, hope I finish and it's before dark!
