    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.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    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.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
