Given the reputation of baggage handlers at most of the major airports around the world, it's no wonder why cyclists get queasy at the thought of traveling on a plane or across international borders with their bicycle. But if done properly, taking a bike on your next vacation shouldn't present as much of an issue as you would think. All that's needed is a solid travel case like the Dakine Bike Bag. This bag is packed with features that will help keep your mind at ease after handing over your prized possession to any of the major airlines. The Bike Bag comfortably fits one road or mountain bike and has internal padding to help protect your wheels, fork, and rear triangle. When it's not being used, the bag rolls up for simple and easy storage.
If you're traveling and don't have access to a bike shop or mechanic, you'll probably want to bring along a multi-tool to help you reassemble your bike.
