I travel so much and I miss riding my bicycle. I rented a bicycle in Cape Town instead of hauling mine to Africa. The rental cost much more than the Aerus Biospeed Travel Case that arrived today. It is small enough I probably won't need to pay excess baggage fees. I did a dry run and it took less than 15 minutes to pack my bicycle. This case is very similar to the Pika Packworks. Both have received excellent recommendations. I had been thinking about renting a hard case, but the rental plus excess baggage fees are about the same price as the Aerus delivered to my door with free shipping.
