I am a bicycle commuter, riding a traditional bike most of the time. I also travel for my work, and have often thought how nice it would be to bring a folding bike with me on some of my business trips - more as a form of transportation than anything else. I found a used Yeah! folding bike locally which looked like it would fit the bill, and was very reasonably priced. Now I am trying to figure out how to pack the bike for air travel.
The bike that I got has 16" wheels, rack and fenders, and when I fold it up, it is about 30" from end to end, and about 24" wide - I think that if I were to remove the seat-tube I could save a couple of inches on width. The height of the package is about 12".
When packing folding bikes for air travel, do most of you use a standard suitcase? What suitcases work well? Is disassembly required, or just folding? - what other questions should I be asking?
