• As per thread title - i need a bike bag for transporting my polo bike to geneva for the euro's.

    If it's good, i'd be interested in buying. if you don't want to sell, i'd fling a bit of money/some bike bits/beer your way. if i know you, perhaps you'd just lend it to me?

  • Tom has a DHB one doesn't he?

  • aaah, yes. can't remember if he actually bought it in the end or not...

  • Have a DHb bag, as new if you still looking to buy one?

  • cheers, but i'm sorted now.

  • Sorry to resurrect this thread that's a few years old now, but I'm in a similar situation.

    I'm flying to Linz in Austria from 14th July - 14th Sept and would only need a bag for the flight there and back. I don't know how often I'd end up using a bike bag afterwards so I'm not sure if it'd be worth spending that much money on buying one.

    If anybody has any leads to hiring / borrowing one, I'd be highly greatful.


  • Try getting a card box from the lbs you can fly using one of them

  • Thanks for the very fast reply RuffStuff.

    I just started to look into the cardboard box solution and it seems to be the most feasible. My only issue is handling and transport - i.e. will it fit into the bag of a car as I'll be taking a suitcase too.

    Any experience with sizes of cardboard bike boxes and taxi boots / back seats (I understand all cars are different though).


  • Should fit in most cars with seats down or estate fine. Use bubblewrap to line it/ protect bike.
    Other options a cheap bag from crc but they don't look like they'd offer much protection.

  • Yeah, I saw those bags and thought the same - the reviews are quite mixed too.

    I'll give some shops a ring about getting hold of a cardboard box. Thanks for the help!

    Will probably post back in case anyone else comes across this in the future.

  • I'm based in Birmingham so it'll be difficult. Phoned Evans in Birmingham who said to phone them tomorrow morning when they have a delivery so fingers crossed!

  • Try halfrauds its surprising how many people actually let them build bikes, always piles of boxes behind my local one

  • iv just had a dolan frame delivered and still have the box, might just be big enough to hold a full bike. you can check it out if you want, can also measure the dimensions if itl help?
