We're heading out for spring break. By car. The roof rack is full. I'm going to try and stash the coupled RB-T in the back seat.
It all fits pretty easily. There are a couple minor tweaks I need to make to the bike that will simplify packing. Mainly around the stem and front brake cable. I can't imagine stuffing a super nice bike with a really nice paint job in this box. I guess you can use pipe insulators and stuff, but I'm ok with scratching stuff up.
I crammed the wheels, frame and bars in there and then tossed the cranks, saddle and bits in the voids. I'll pack with more care when this bike goes on a plane later this summer.
Liza says I look like a turtle.
It used to be you could haul a bag this size as luggage on a plane for nothing. As long as it came in under 50 pounds. I'm good at 35.5 pounds, but all luggage costs money now apparently.
