For Euro or US train travel perhaps, but its a little less than ideal.
I worked with some world class bike polo players that travel all over, totally endorsing the soft cases for their Bilenky S&S polo bikes (Go Dusty!). They also ride singlespeed bikes, and don't mind if they are beat up.
I met a bike tourist that combined trains and the soft case for regional trips. it was a huge bundle on top of his rack. Certainly viable. He LOVED it, absolutely LOVED it.
I've used my S&S bike with the hard case so far, but for a point to point tour i would likely use the make a cardboard box method.
