    Thanks for the idea. Can I eat the popcorn instead?



    Won't survive the trip as checked baggage. Expect torn wheels.

    Good idea, but I don't want a suitcase, since I'll be stuck with it the whole tip.

    Hence my looking for a light, compact solution that I can disassemble/roll at the airport.

    Thanks.

    So do you suggest not inflating them at their fullest and/or using heavy-duty material that will withstand that higher pressure?

    Don't pets fly in the checked baggage area?

    At worst, instead of air, I could use expanding foam.

    The Brommie is only 65x65x40cm when folded, so it's no bigger than a regular suitcase.

    Another idea: Get an inflatable mattress and fold it around the bike:

    Thanks for the input. I'll ask Brompton what parts I should pad to make sure I don't walk out of the airport with a broken bike.

    It's strange that no one sells a padded bag with inflatable butyl...

    Is it really safe to simply use a padded bag to carry a folding bike? No broken part or bent wheel, as some people reported?

  11. Building a travel case to carry a folding bike on the plane?

    Hello

    Since it's now pretty much impossible to take a folding bike on board as hand luggage, I need to find a way to take a Brompton with me as registered baggage.

    However, since 1) I'll go...

    Apparently, bike cafés/café vélos are mostly for-profit organizations that happen to offer a "cycling atmosphere", rather than a volunteer-based, non-profit like NYC's Time's Up.

    So the challenge...

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Finding the right saddle looks like black magic :bang:

    Or does everyone's butt hurts after 100 miles, regardless?

    I did about 150k yesterday on my six-speed Brommie and a 10kg bag in the front, but the last 20-30k were very painful on the rear-end.

    Still haven't found a saddle that will let me do that kind of...

    Thanks for the feedback. If they sold for less than €150, I would get one.

    Incidently, I just saw this home-made single wheel trailer at a bike workshop:

    Not foldable, but with just one wheel, small enough to be taken on trains.

    I guess it can be made lighter...

    The wheel can't be attached simply to the outside because the weight won't be equally shared on both sides of the axis (sorry, can't explain it better). Maybe a better solution would be to get two...

    Yes, I was thinking of replacing them with inflated tires for a smoother and faster ride, although there isn't much clearance to fit bigger wheels.

    Or maybe I could drill holes on the side and...

    Would they be OK for 100km/day trips?

    Belt drive: Why no strap?

    Hello

    I was wondering: Why do belt drives à la Gates have to be continuous and require cutting the seat stay?

    But €500 is way too expensive just to carry a bag while travelling.

    Hard to believe those can't be made for circa €100. Two wheels and a light structure.
