Just found out from work that I will be headed back to Japan this spring and am debating which bike to bring. Last year I brought a steel road bike and had a blast riding around including a few rinko trips. I recently picked up a Ridley Helium and now I'm trying to figure out which bike to bring. Does anyone here rinko their carbon bike and have you found you need any extra protection to keep it safe?

I have Rinko'ed a carbon bike on the plane without problem, I used bubblewrap & pipe insulation to protect it. I will be doing the same again next spring :) Rinko on the train as Mike says has always been fine.

Sweet!

Half Fast, are those all rinko bags where you keep the rear wheel on? Last trip I was using a bag where both wheels came off and it was minority annoying.
