Trico Iron Cases

Anyone here ever used one of these for your touring bike with front & rear fenders and racks? I'll be trying this magic trick after work tonight but it's not looking good with 58cm & 56cm bikes. I think I might need to send the racks ahead in a separate box and I'd obviously like to avoid going that route. If I find a way to get it all in the cases then I'll post photos to show how/prove it. : ) Ideas and experiences of others trying this would be fabulous!

Cheers,

Wow, you don't come across uncharted territory often in touring but apparently I have here. I'll report how it went after our tour.

Well if you've searched the forums for answers to the same questions I had...

Here they are:

It's tight but it works, even with wide Tubus racks. You can check out quality images of how I did this with two touring bikes. Just follow the link to our current tour.
