*apologies i can't seem to edit the thread title*

hello, first time rinko bukuro user here. do you think this will be OK? i will be removing the handlebar so that i can zip it up wth only the fork exposed and will cover it with a transparent or black(better) gomi bag.

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv191%2Fspitfire_esquive%2FrinkoVPX.jpg&hash=11000e4dedc8c6411e90649a58b54344


my other concern is that how to make sure it remains upright inside the train, is it "acceptable" to lash it to the handlebar on the first/last train (the one with space for our differently abled brethren). it it supright because of the usual configuration where the 2 wheels are attached to the frame. i will be taking the nambu/ome line so no shinkansens :)

thanks in advance!

I think it will be fine. Your bag looks fairly compact. And lashing it to a hand railing at the end of the train should be okay as well.

We had a bulkier setup and more bicycles and we've received no complaints from the train conductor. Attached image is three bicycles lashed to a hand railing, taking up all kinds of space.

You will be fine, I just wrap the back wheel and chain and slide the front in with the back, that is all I bother with. Never had any problems getting on the train.

I have seen friends just wrap the back section with plastic bags and tape.:warau:

Thanks guys! This is going to be a test for the bag too, found the biggest bag (and consequently the most expensive at 15K円) and will see how it holds up to a 40lb bike :mtb00:. Cheers!
