New Case


The new backpack case from S&S just showed up. It doesn't look like a bike is going to fit in it, but they say it will. We shall see. From the technical drawings, it is easy.


The idea is to be able to take the bike with me for travel, but not get dinged $80-100 each time I fly with it, and also mix in some public transit to increase my range of fun, ie, take the bike on the bus to Chicago, etc. I'll let you know how packing goes.

You'll have to let us know if it works and if you are able to take on a plane without a huge fee-- Sean and I have been searching for something so we can take our bikes with us when we fly! Jealous of your and Jens ride--we're not quite there weather wise in Marquette...

I look forward to seeing your review of the back pack. my new 650b is S&S and I'm trying to decide on cases...

Hi - I was wondering how you got on with the S&S case ? I'm thinking of purchasing one myself, as I'll soon be off to S America for a cycling trip. When it's empty, how compact can you get it ?
