    Linda

    Just wondering...what do you use to tote your folding bikes from one place to another? I found a site that handles carrying cases, these would be ideal.

    I have a bag but I rarely use it. I usually keep my smaller folder in the car. Once on a cruise, I left the bag at home and bungee corded the bike to a wheelie cart so I wouldn't have to keep opening the bag for security.

    Welcome to the forum!

    When I travel in town with my folder or carry it on a road trip I use a bag to protect the finish. If I were to take it on a plane I would buy a hard case.

    Just put my Airnimal Joey in the trunk of my Peugeot 407sw . . .
    When having more luggage I cover the Joey with an old blanket.
    "A trip on my Brommie, -or is it the Airnimal Joey?- makes me smile. . ."

    Flatten back seat in our little Yaris Liftback and bungi the bikes to headrest posts with old bath towel in between.

    In 4Ruinner SUV, the front tires come off (and go into custom canvas bags we made) and then are QR'ed to a 2" x 3.5" plywood board. Very solid, no rattles.
