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
I used this for a recent trip to Majorca. I padded the bike very well with bubble wrap / pipe lagging (see pic) and the baggage handlers were very careful with it. I wouldn't use the bag on it's own unless you're not worried about your bike being damaged.
Easy jet ask for pedals to be removed, and handlebars turned 90 degrees in line with frame. Max weight for bike is 32kg which is very heavy! Mine was 12kg.
