A bike to travel with

At Interbike 2007, Surly was demo'ing their new travel version of their Cross Check bike, named the Traveler's Check. Check out this photo -

You can actually get any bike modified with the fittings to do this. My buddy has a older steel road bike that he sent in for cleaning, painting and cutting. They did a great job and it looks almost exactly like this picture including the gray case for travel. While I say any I am not sure that they could make this work with CF.

I would cry if they did this to my Simoncini. I do like the idea of one made for this though - because I have to travel so much I could take a bike with me.

I would like to buy one of those cases if they didn't cost so much.

Nice idea. Of course, you don't have to be so practical about it.
