When I used to live in New York, a common bicycle travel hack I’d use were these portfolio cases from Chinatown. They were awesome for flying with a road, track or ‘cross bike but required you to take almost your entire bike apart. Small bike travel bags are great. You can sometimes sneak them on board for less than the bicycle check fee and you don’t have to lug around a big case or box through airports. Using what they’ve learned over the past few years of traveling with bikes around the globe, Mash contact San Diego’s Jandd to build a bicycle travel bag based on their design input. These bags will fit a road, track or ‘cross bike. Perhaps even an S&S tourer, but I’ve yet to confirm that. They’re in stock now at Mash, so if your interest is piqued, like mine is, head over there to check them out.
