Strengths:    Good capacity, rigid case (given that it's plastic)

Weaknesses:    Dinky wheel. No side handle and reinforcement.

Bottom Line:   
I am a tall guy with a 21" MTB frame, and I am just able to fit it into this great case. For average size road and mountain bikes, you should have no problem. I bought this case after getting a bent frame courtesy of baggage handlers. For flying, this is a GREAT case.

The case is separated into 2 wheel wells, with a thick plastic separator and foam padding to keep your wheels away from your bike frame. Like most cases, you have to take your handlebards and seat & post off, and loosen the stem to turn the forks sideways if you have a MTB (road bike forks might be narrow enough to keep as they are).

Inside the case are 4 steel tie-down points with nylon straps that enable you to "suspend" your bike in the case -- no part of the bike touches the outside of the case where it could be damaged when thrown by baggage handlers (through the plane window I saw my own case get tossed on the ground).

My only complaint is a lack of side casters and handle -- this case is BIG, and would be easier to move through the airport on its side. With the bike (and I usually put my helmet, shoes, and pack inside, too -- there's plenty of room), this puppy ends up weighing 75lbs. It comes with lockable side clamps, so you can protect your belongings.

Renting a Cargo Case in San Francisco?

Anybody know of a bike shop in San Francisco that rents cargo cases? I need to transport my bike on a plane next week, but I don't do it often enough to warrant buying one. I guess my option is to just use a cardboard bike box ... I did that once in the past, but I'd rather put my new $2500 bike ... Read More »
