How do you protect your STI shifters / brake levers for transport?
Last year on my trip to Italy, I simply removed the handlebar and placed it under the top tube in the box. On my way back, I decided to loosen the STIs and turn them inward, thinking they would be better protected. I was wrong. One got damaged on the way back.
Does anyone using a box, do anything different to protect their shifters / brake levers? If so what?
The next time I go, I think I will place a piece of a large foam tube I got as packing material with a hot water tank.
