Fly your wheels.
Despite the hardships of plane travel that we experience as people, our bikes have it much, much worse. Though it can't completely eliminate the unfortunate facts of flight for a bike, Thule's Round Trip Traveler helps to ensure that a bike completes its cargo hold sojourn in safety. The requisite, separate wheel pockets are complemented with smaller pockets for some internal organization, and an assortment of handles provide options for either carrying the bag or rolling it on built-in wheels. The fork mounting block is fixed, which offers a bit more stability while rushing through the concourse. The Round Trip accommodates bikes with wheelbases measuring up to 116.8cm, and — though Thule recommends it for "most road, mountain and cyclocross" frames — it seems best suited for road or 'cross bikes.

Solid Bike Traveller
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Product is good value for the $. Lightweight and flexible, yet durable and protective. I have used for intercontinental travel with both my monster Yeti SB6c and toothpick Stumpy HT. Both bikes were reasonable to pack, fit in carrier, and arrived to the destination undamaged.
The Thule carrier arrived at my house containing an incorrect plastic support insert (too long for the short side)....perhaps the Thule worker who did the final packaging had lutefisk for lunch. Anyways, worked with Danielle and she was diligent in working with the manufacturer to remedy the situation and send me an extra insert of the correct size.
What's the weight and dimension?
