It's definitely worth considering foregoing the couplers and spending the money on something like the Airport Ninja, which is barely larger than an S&S bag. The big advantage I see to a coupled bike is the size of the case is small enough to fit in a regular taxi if you have to.

That wasn't really an issue on my PBP trip. Last time, it was a bit of a pain getting my family and my bike is a small van on the way back to the airport.

To get my bike into a full-size case, I pretty much disassembled it as much as I would have with the couplers separated. I didn't get cable separators for the derailleur cables, which would be required on most bikes.
