    airline travel

    I am sure this has been discussed ad nauseum but any recommendations for a triathlon bike travel case for airline travel? I would like to keep under the 62 inch linear limit and hopefully not spend $625 required for an Armored Hen House.

    Thanks!

    What kind of bike do you have? An S&S coupled 700c road bike can just barely meet the 62" limit with deflated tires and careful placement of the couplers. No chance with a normal road bike frame - keep in mind that the wheels will be almost 26" long + 26" high, so that only leaves 10" for the width (not even including the thickness of the case itself).

    I have P2 but figured I would have to tear it apart a bit to fit the 62 inches.
