I have been looking at getting a case to use for either shipping my bike or taking it on an airplane. I would like know your opinion, experiences or suggestions. I have been looking at the Trico Iron Case and cases from Tri All 3 (not sure which model from them?). Any other hard case manufacturers out there? I am looking for protection first. I own both a road/touring bike and mountain bike. I would like to be able to take either depending on the desintation. With any hardcase will you always be charged for flying with a bike or if you have a smaller case might you slip it by?
