Hi, is it possible to fit a road bike in this case? I have rmountain, road and gravel bikes and I want a bag that can fit all.
Excellent MTB-Specific Bike Travel Bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've used the Scicon Aero Comfort 3.0 MTB bag twice now to ship a Bonson CC XO1 via bike flights. I got this particular case because it requires the least amount of tear-down of the bike to get it into the bag AND the solid frame that the bike attaches to inside the bag. The fact that you only have to remove wheels and pedals is amazing - I would also recommend removing discs from wheels to ensure they don't get bent (this takes about 5 extra minutes).
As you can see from the video below, once you remove your wheels, you then use the thru axle to connect the fork and rear triangle to the frame - this creates a very secure base and limits vibration during transit. once you've done that, loosen your stem bolts and turn your bars 90 degrees - it is important to re-tighten those bolts, as your bar will provide structure to the case once it's zipped up. Drop your wheels in the pockets on each side, and boom you're done. *I use some bubble wrap to protect the most delicate parts of the bike, but it's not really required. The bag comes with a smaller bag for your helmet and shoes, etc that fits nicely under the downtube. The bag rolls very well and hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear at this point.
Bike Flights lists this travel bag in their dropdown, so it is easy to get a quote - for me, it was $53 each way for 3-day shipping from San Francisco to Denver (pretty awesome if you ask me). For someone like me who may use the bag a few times a year, this is a fantastic investment that will accommodate my mtb for years to come, regardless of what model/size I get next.
