Hey Guys,

I will fly to Europe for the whole July and I am looking for somebody who has a hard travel case and would be willing to rent it out to me.

Please pm me or post if you know somebody/have something...

Thanks for the help!

Just get this:


Lightweight, easy to use, protects your bike.
30+ trips with my bike in it (actually have two of them) and love it.

No worries, enjoy your trip!!

Just a few tips...cause more than the case (soft or hard) its the technique in packing that matters.

-Use pipe foam to cover all tubes
-Use thick foam (pipe foam works for this too) around the chainrings
-Put the chain in the large ring, and take off the RD.
-Use old hubs or fork/rear end blocks to further protect the frame
-Use old tubes, cut up, and lash everything down so that nothing is moving around.
-Pack your clothes/soft gear into plastic bags and use it for extra padding/protection
-If you need to take off your stem, go get some cheap alloy spacers to fill up that space the stem leaves so that the HS assembly is not loose/moving around.
