Does anyone have any advice on flying on airplanes with your bike? I have done it a few times and, besides having to pay extra, have not been pleased with the results.
The last time I did it, my bike box got rained on both coming and going. Another time I was on a flight and then bumped and my bike box looked like it had already been flown around the world, when it had only been put on the plane and taken off again.
I have used the airlines bike boxes, but since I do self contained biking/camping, I don't usually have anywhere to leave the box for a couple of weeks.
Any advice would be appreciated.
