    Travelling with a Brompton

    Hello,
    complete newbie to the forum, so apologies if this has been asked before.
    I'm trying to find out what's the best way to take my Brompton bike on a flight, has anyone had any experiences with this ? And how did you pack your bike ?
    I'm thinking about getting the Brompton B bag, but not completely sure if it's worth the 100 price tag...
    Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions will be very welcome
    Many thanks

    I re-use my Brompton box and have no trouble with the airlines. Bit of a pain to carry the box without wheels though.

    I'm not sure if the airlines let us through with a soft bag. I'll ask them next time round.

    I've wrapped the folded Brompton in a cheap camping mat, secured with a bungy cord before putting the standard slip bag over the whole lot and tightening it's drawstring around the base.

    I've found that it's best to remove the two frame clamps and put them in the slip cover's bag at the rear of your saddle whilst doing this.
