Wife and I have finally decided that our main vacation this summer is to take our bikes to Tuscany for 2 weeks riding. Getting them there is the problem. There are different types of bike bag on the market but can you recommend some of the better ones?
What experiences (good and bad) have you had transporting by plane and what tips do you have to improve the odds of getting it to destination without damage. One thing I read is to use a spacer to protect the dropouts for example. Other suggestions?
