Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Travel Case
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Anyone know of a good travel case? Or better yet, a diy way to travel on a plane with your bike? I searched around a bit but I only found really pricey ones online, aboiut $200+, and anyones of a reasonable price where just for shipping, which seems a bit of a waste.
I have a feeling there has to be a better way!

just took my bike to mexico. I went to a local bike shop and asked for a bike box. Took the wheels, pedals and handlebars off wrapped them and the frame with newspaper. costs nothing. I also put all my tools, pump, and other misc stuff. its about $100 flat rate so you can make as heavy as you want it.
anyone have experience with this kind of set-up on a plane? I kinda don't think its worth it if I am taking an 1.5 hour trip on a plane to ship my bike out there for an extra $100, has anyone ever tried this? I mean, even if you had to pay the extra $25 for the carry-on its totally worth it.
