I appreciate the step-by-step instructions; certainly gives me an idea of how to proceed with my bike.
Just be careful in selecting a suitcase. Many are only 19" wide, which makes it hard to pack a 20" wheel, and many of those that are 20" wide (the Samsonite f'lite 31") are well over the airline limit of 62" and are subject to oversize-bag fees.
