PRO Mega bike travel case - First look

New case from Shimano's component and accessory arm

PRO, Shimano's component and accessory arm, has a new bike travel case called the Mega. Somewhere between a hard and soft case, it uses a rigid metal frame as its base, with fully adjustable mounting points for the fork and rear dropouts. It also has a chain guide and rear derailleur protector.

Inside are numerous Velcro straps and adjustable protective pads that cover the most vulnerable areas, plus zipped pockets for pedals or spares. The wheels slip into external, zipped pockets, and the whole thing is easily transportable with chunky handles and four tough, steerable castors.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
