Well, I just ordered a Sci-Con Aero Comfort Plus (53PL), a soft sided case. I'll let you know how it works after it's first use in a couple o' weeks.vantongerloo said:I seem to always be flying the bike somewhere and my new Merlin doesn't seem to feel comfortable in shoving it in a cast-off cardboard box from the LBS.
Any preferences on which case to get (Hard shell) ?
I thought you are allowed to have a bike case as a luggage. Why pay if you don't have to?vantongerloo said:Hm.
That is a good point about the planet of the apes.
In the past I would actualy FedEx my bike and that was a little cheaper than taking it on the plane and avoids the search.
Seems like I would worry the soft case wouldn't withstand much punishment? Anyone have experience on this?
Because airlines have weight and girth restrictions on luggage. Above a certain weight or dimensions greater than a certain number of inches (lenth + width + height), you have to pay. Exact requirements vary from airline to airline.LBK said:I thought you are allowed to have a bike case as a luggage. Why pay if you don't have to?
