I won’t lie: I have a fear of travelling with my bike. I’ve tried pretty much everything - cardboard box one time, a flimsy, cheap soft shell the other. I’ve even once wrapped a bike up in dozens of bin bags and loaded it gently and fearfully onto the floor of a bus luggage compartment (the bike survived).

Thankfully, dear reader, you will be put at ease by learning that in recent years I have had a much better soft shell case that has mostly done the job, although it still hasn’t dealt with my (irrational or justified?) fear of hopping on planes with my bike.
