Smallest bike travel case? Quote | Reply

I am a corporate pilot and looking for the most compact travel case for my bike so I can bring it along on trips. Since I load all the luggage myself I am not too concerned with strength/impact resistance etc., just looking for something that will allow my bike to occupy the smallest space possible. Right now I am riding a Guru ventus, but considering switching to a BH GC aero which has the semi-integrated seat mast which may be a factor for some cases. Anyone have any suggestions?

Try a Pika Packworks soft case. Took my bike to Finland, Dallas and Kona, no problems.

I use scott bike case, bought it for 30$.

Suppose that any soft bike cases ~equal in size, because they just wrap your bike.

This is the smallest I've seen that will fit a standard (non-break-down) frame. It's from Titanflex. 36"x 27"x 10.5". Its "trick" is that you have to remove the fork to make the bike fit.

Can you get it by itself? Also it's more than 62" linear so it's oversize as far as fees go. Does anybody remember the name of the company who was making a 2-bag set where each bag was under the limit? I'm looking for those.
