    Giant hard cases?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of any manufacturers of generic hard cases that can be used to hold a bike? I'm not referring to bike-specific cases such as the Tri All or the Trico Ironman as I want something that can also hold a large amount of luggage. Something along the dimensions of a standard cardboard bike box, but made of something more durable. I'm not cycle touring- rather I'm moving around different countries this year and want to take a bike with me. I've checked Pelican, and the largest case they do isn't anywhere near big enough.

    Thanks.

    I may have just what you need ... I had several problems with the flimsy boxes from local bike shops so I built a ruggedized version for the 3 -4 tours I do each year. Check out this link for the details ...
