Anyone have experience / input on a sturdy soft case to handle a 29er?

I was ready to buy the Epoc http://www.evocusa.com/#images/BikeTravelbag_left.jpg based on great reviews, yet company indicates you have to fully deflate the tires, and if you use Stan's, you have to re-seat the tires/wheels at your destination. Maybe not a big concern for a great bag - yet looking for a bag that accepts & protects 29er wheels.

Read about Scott Deluxe bag and Picka Packworks - other great choices, yet looking for good advice - Thanks!

Did you ever get a case or bag for your bike? I have the same bike (large) and have been looking for a solution. If you found something, what size is your bike and how tight is the fit?

In fact, I just got this bag last week and already took it across the US. Was not billed one way, yet got hit for the expense coming back. Take a chance and google Evoc Bike Bag and check out the reviews. I purchased the bag from ChainReactionCylces.com

You don't need to buy the adaptors for road bikes with the new model as it comes with bag and with the 2011 model it accepts 29er wheels (albeit I had to let out some air). This bag rocks and its built very solid.

My bike is a Large, and there was no issue. Total weight of bag & bike was 46lbs...under the airline weight limit of 50lbs.
