The clasps are also able to take secure locks and your precious handlebar and seat settings can remain in place, because how many riders actually know their ideal saddle height. Even hydration systems can generally stay in place too. This new addition is designed for all Road bikes, the larger Enduro Mountain Bikes, Gravel, Cyclocross bikes plus some types of Touring bikes. We managed to fit an Easy Fit and a Premium Bike Box Alan into the boot of our Audi A4 easily, with room to spare for bags. At the top of the range you can get GPRS tracking too, so that should the worst happen, you’ll be able to locate your expensive bike, even if it ends upon the wrong aircraft!
When you look at the soft sided alternatives on the market, it’s hard to comprehend the mind that thinks it’ll look after your pride and joy. My own current favourite bike is my custom built Bianchi, finished with 3T and Vittoria, and there’s no way that I’d trust it to something that in essence in no more protective than wrapping a 15 tog quilt around your frame and attending church each Sunday in the hope that the cycling gods will look kindly on you and deliver the baggage handlers of the world from evil. Truth is guys that it just won’t happen, because they’re often on minimum wage, working to pressurised timeframes and limits and haven’t got the time to carefully and delicately place you’re bike down. No, air transport is a rough game and all too often bikes in poor quality bags and boxes get damaged beyond repair.
