Place your dirty bike in this bag before loading into your car/van and save yourself the trouble of cleaning up the mess after the bike has been taken out when you arrive home.

"Exactly as described, this is a cheap, lightweight bag for transporting your bike. The fact that it's clear also helps (or so I like to think) the baggage handlers treat your bike more like a bike and less like an anonymous package suitable for throwing around any old how.
Doesn't last more than a few trips due to the treatment in airports (conveyors, etc) wearing holes in the bag. However, it's particularly good if like me you do a lot of point-to-point cycle touring and want to take the bag with you in a pannier when you get to your destination - the bag packs up nice and small and light.
Both Easyjet from Luton and Ryanair from Valencia, Spain, accepted bikes bagged in this way with no problems. However, I heard from another traveller a report of BA from Gatwick refusing to accept it as a valid bike bag."
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Wears Out Easily

Size

Does anyone know what this bag weighs,and how big it is both folded up and opened out?

Many thanks.

Karl.
It weighs 800g according to the CTC (see http://www.ctc.org.uk/resources/Travel_with_CTC/PolyBikeBag.pdf) and when folded up (after use) took up only about 10% of one fairly standard-sized pannier of mine. Compared to padded bike bags or any other packaging option for bikes it's tiny.
