    it seems obvious to me that the tranzbag wins out because a buxom blond germanic girl will help me onto the trains if I have one....;-)

    check out the Tardis bag, a fellow named Nun on this forum uses one and it looks quite interesting, is about 1kg he has mentioned. I do believe it is smaller than the ones you referred to, so easier to get into cars etc, but the bike has to be taken apart more. I think it is made in New Zealand.

    I have a (well two now actually) Groundeffect bodybag. A slightly smaller model than the tardis. I can pack my bike away by removing the seat, front wheel, and drop bars.

    I can leave my front and rear rack on (and you would get away with turning the handlebars sideways if you had flat bars. Then i can pack all the rest of my gear around the bike to protect it (not a padded bag, but it fairly hard wearing).
    Has carry handles and a shoulder strap, folds down to approx A4 size and 5cm thick. Not sure on the weight, but isnt much

    Not sure if you can get one where you are, but Performance bike has one as well. I used one for a recent trip and it was fine, but heavier than I personally would want to carry during the tour (I mail it home). That said I suspect the Tardis is a better design. I can't comment on the two you linked.
