I've thought about one around half that size for my Montague Boston.
I am very happy with my Mash SF x JANDD travel bag. It’s quite compact, padded and decent to wear on your back. Took my gravel bike in it halfway around the world.
So I once made a bike travel bag myself and whilst I wouldn’t like to repeat the effort again (and don’t currently have the tools anyway) it really wasn’t that difficult. I borrowed heavily from the Orucase shape and bought a hiking rucksack from a charity shop which was hacked to pieces. I re-used the whole back of it to give the bag backpack capabilities and then the zips for closure. Inside it has Foam blocks sewn inside fabric that surround the bag width wise that are Velcro detachable and then in it has sleeves on each large side which hold high density foam panels. Like the Orcucase the bike has to be Largely disassembled to pack into it but I can also fit my shoes and helmet as well. So far it’s lasted through +10 journeys really well with one minor repair. Most of the fabric I used was just 500d cordura. The hardest part of making it on a regular kitchen table was having a second pair of hands to help rotate it as I sewed the corners.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
