Bike box advice

Postby n13lat » Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:50 am

I will be emigrating later in the year to New Zealand and would like to take my new Cervelo R3 with me on the trip (3 separate flights) and am looking for advice on bike boxes. I have thought about the semi hard type and padded bags but I think i'd spend the whole 30+ hours worrying. Any advice on the different Boxes available would be appreciated.

I've flown plenty of times with a soft bag - if you pack it well then it will be fine.
For the sake of your Expensive bike and complex flights though - go hard case. But still pack it well.

Me too. Great semi-hard bag.
