    Carry bag/luggage for Dahon Curve D3

    I have been looking for a carry bag for my wife's Curve D3, but what I'm finding look a bit flimsy and perhaps a little large for the Curve. They mention that they will fit a 20" FB, so with that in mind, the Curve would swim inside. Can any one perhaps recommend a suitcase or a carry on bag that people use on board an airplane - the ones that have small wheels and a retractable handle for pulling.

    Thanks guys.

    Cheers

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. There are a number of Goodwill stores around and I have seen luggage for sale in some of them. On that theme, I should hit some garage sales in some of the upscale neighborhoods.

    Craigslist is full of soft and hard-sided luggage for relatively cheap. I wonder if you will be able to get the bike into an airline legal size luggage without at least doing some disassembly? I can get my 20" bike into a hardsided 26" suitcase but must partially disassemble. Keep in mind that 26" is too large to carry on. Not sure what the linear inches are for a carry on but it's much smaller.
