Hi all, I recently bought a Citizen Tokyo. I have some upcoming travel, and I'd like to bring my bike and check it on the plane. I'd like to get a hardside suitcase with wheels. Can anyone recommend a tried-and-true option for the Citizen Tokyo? I know that the Samsonite F'lite is popular, can anyone confirm if the Tokyo fits it? Thanks in advance!
I don't know the dimensions of the Samsonite F'lite, but my suggestion is to get
a suitcase that has the zippered expansion option. I was in Macy's and got this
on sale(US$150 I think) 3 years ago - Samsonite Winfield 2 28" Hardside Spinner Luggage.
Weight: 12.95 lbs. Dimensions: 28.0" x 19.0" x 13.0". I've used it to check in 2 different bikes so far. In the photo you can see how I packed a 2013 Citizen Tokyo when I went to
Aruba last year. Had to take off both wheels and pull out both the handle bars and
seatpost. I left the kickstand and fenders home. In the video, I packed a different
bike on a trip for China - Tobukaeru folder with 20in. wheels. You can get an idea of
how to break down the bike to make it fit.
I was going to be there as a student(Nanjing University) for three weeks.
Wasn't sure if my dorm room had any(it didn't); plus it helps the bike a bit
from getting crushed when there's 10 other suitcases on top of it.
