Bike box Alan with a disc wheel
Quote | Reply
Has anyone travelled with a disc wheel in a bike box alan? Obviously you can’t use the strengthening pole on the middle.
Has it been on with a disc wheel without the pole? Any other tips to pack it?

I have a VeloVault and this is a reason I am hesitant about getting a disc wheel because I fly to almost all of my races. The hard cases that don't have a pole seem to use thicker plastic. Would be neat if there was a secondary off-center location for the pole. That would help still be better than not having one at all.

Probably worth getting a separate case for the disc wheel, tbh

I've travelled with BBA and a disc without the pole - works fine, no issues.

+1 been using BBA for trips to the PI and Canada + national travel without issue. The pole is a "nice to have" but the case is very strong on its own.

It should be fine. My partner and I have done ~100 flights with our BBAs. She normally has a disc, I normally don't. It's never had any damage. I don't think I've even used the stick with mine since ~2014.
