Getting a larger folder on an airline
I've been thinking hard about picking up an old Hummer Mountain bike, foldable, and modifying it some so that it's transportable around. It has 26" wheels.
One tactic for flights that I'm thinking about is separating the bike from the wheels and shipping them in separate containers. Probably would incur like a $20 checked luggage fee...
Could this work? One thing I'm thinking is to put them in soft bags (cheaper) and then around it putting bungie cords to reduce the volume and hopefully keep it from snagging or something.
