does anyone know are airlines happy to take bikes inside one of these and if so do they still insist on wheel off and handlebars turned.
can you just get away with wheeling it inside and wheeling it out of the bag the other end at luggage reclaim as it stands. its such a phaff having to do all the mechanical stuff to the bike to ship it to point of tour start? this looks like the answer to my problems if the airline are happy with it
Travelled Newcastle/Geneva (Easyjet) Heathrow/Tolouse(BA), May be useful to take some sticky tape as at Newcastle needed to repack as would not fit through scanner and had to remove front wheel and tape to frame. I take handlebars of headset (cables still attached) and tape to side of frame. With wheel and handlebars off it makes package a bit more square (more suitcase like?) so staff can probably get their heads around it a bit better ?
