I think that this may be a stupid question, but here goes anyway..
Is there any problem putting a bike with suspension forks in the hold of an aircraft? I'm just thinking of the problem with inflated tyres.

My advice would be to get a travel case, pack it in there. With the way stuff gets treated by the airlines I would nt trust my MTB with them.
I had a hand made, numbered and signed beer stein broke in three places from air travel.

If they're air sprung I'd let the pressure out just in case (don't forget to pack a pump ;) ).
I wouldn't worry about it.Most baggage pits are pressurized,heck you can haul your dog in the bag pit a bike should be no prob:D

I flew my bike to Europe... no problem. Well, the Dutch customs guys hauled me over for a detailed inspection. Dutch cops are scary bastards.
Thanks for your replies, much appreciated.
The forks are oil filled, so I was concerned about the possibility of arriving minus the oil.
