I am trying to box a bike to bring on a flight and Delta's size req's are (length + width + height) under 62". I scored some bike boxes from a local shop, but cant find anything near this small size requirement. Does anyone know where i can find a bike box/container this size?
Has anyone out there manage a way to travel with a bike on commercial airlines without having to pay overrage fees? I think even after taking off wheels and handlebard + stem, my frame is almost 62" (length and height) without the couple inches necessary for width of the box. this seems liek a pretty impossible squeeze.
i've heard of people wrapping a dissassembled bike in bubble wrap and a burlap sack. has anyone had any luck with this?
