I just read +Bike Hugger post about flying bicycles for free.  I wish that could work for me, but sadly NO.  :S

Because of the crazy-excessive numbers of miles that I ride, I owe myself the pleasure and ergonomic benefits of riding a real bike, not a folding/travel bike.  So I pay $150 each way to fly my own bike.  It turns out that's still cheaper than renting a high-end bike for 7-10 days, but there is a huge amount of inconvenience and time spent packing and unpacking the bike -- twice.

On this past holiday trip I could not find any professional-grade bikes for rent in my size, so I opted to fly my own bike, instead.  I already own a really great corrugated plastic travel crate that I have used to fly the MTB a dozen+ times, but this was the first time flying my Trek Madone 7 in it.

See the original post (shared), and the follow-up posts:

https://plus.google.com/109792156715755708589/posts/NxeVPtxr2Pv

and the return trip:

https://plus.google.com/109792156715755708589/posts/ESrxySmPffW

So here is the reason I am writing...  I had more than one comment on the prior posts from people telling me that if I had used brand "XYZ" case/bag, then I wouldn't not have had to remove the crankset to compensate for the Madone "seat mast" -- sounds great, but I became skeptical because of the size of my bike and the fact that the commenters all had much smaller bikes with conventional seat-posts (fully-removable).

So are there any Trek Madone 6 or 7 owners who have a 62cm frame with a Dura-Ace 9000 crank size 55-42T size who can recommend first-hand a hard case or re-inforced travel bag that can fit my bike without removing the crank set?

Maybe someone at +Trek Bicycle could offer some first-hand advice as well?
 
Curses!!! :-(
Things were looking great for taking the Madone with me on holiday, until the seat mast happened. :S

+Bike Hugger Thanks! Ritchey's only go to 59cm. I ride a 62cm, but really should have a 64cm, except Trek doesn't make them big enough. :-(

So I would have to go with the custom bike and S&S couplers, but now we are talking about so much money that spending $150 each way to fly a couple times a year is still looking to me to be more economical.

I think I shall keep on my quest to find a better bike case/crate that accommodates the seatmast without removing the crank. :S

You Know What Lies Outside Of Your Comfort Zone? Opportunity. Door zone: The space right next to the parked car lane. To avoid the hazard of an opening car door, ride on the opposite side of the lane, hugging the white line.
