Hi there. I'm planning a tour through France in april/may 09, and I've got a BoB Ibex.. I've been considering the difficulty of taking both my bike and the trailer on the plane, and just wanted to know if anyone's actually used the Cello to carry their trailer/bike. The idea of being able to hop off of the plane and onto a train with both my bike and trailer in one rolling package sounds nice, indeed. But when I'm ready to head off on my bike, what of the Cello? Although it's attached to the trailer folded up and you can ride with it, I understand that it's about 20 pounds, which will probably end up being about 1/3 (or more) of my touring load... seems like a catch 22. <= but the hassles I've read about regarding taking bikes on trains in France, let alone bikes with trailers makes me think it might be a good option. (I don't want to invest in panniers at this point after buying the trailer, which is used for groceries at home). Any response will be greatly appreciated!
here's the link to the Cello. http://www.wandertec.com/
