closed case on four wheels
Each case includes two carry handles on the side and one folding pull-handle. There are recessed wheels on all four corners. The four latches can be locked, if needed.

A demonstration of how we pack our bike for travel (notice how the chain goes around the ASF mount and doesn't hang loose). Wheels will now go into the padded travel bags.

No need to remove handle bars. Simply mount the bike on the ASF and lay it in the box.

Notice the added padding around the freewheel as a precaution, which is no longer needed with the padded wheel bags. Pedals have also been removed to prevent damage to the case.
This is just a suggestion, one could take much more care in packing, but we were too worn out from the trade show.

Notice how the case stays partly open, due to limiting strap.

With the rear seats folded down, this huge case just fits inside the back of an Audi A4 wagon.

Packing instructions: | back to top |

  1. Take the wheels out of the bike and put them aside.
  2. Shift the chain to be on the large front ring and the small cog on the back.
  3. Mount your frame with the rear dropouts first onto the ASF (anti shock frame) on the t-shaped piece (A) and tighten the quick relase to hold it in place. The chain should go around the 'T' mounting bracket on the ASF.
  4. Turn the handlebars by 90 degrees, so the fork dropouts align with the quick release located on the adjustable clamp (D) of the ASF.
  5. Adjust the angle of the fork bracket (E) so that the chain ring is not touching the ground. Tighten both the bracket (E) and then the quick release, so the bike is no firmly in position for transport.
  6. Check if your pedals extend beyond the sides of the ASF. If so, they should be removed.
  7. Place your front wheel in one of the padded wheel bags, after removing the quickrelease. Store the QR in the bag's pocket.
  8. Place your rear wheel in one of the padded wheel bags, after removing the quickrelease. Store the QR in the bag's pocket. Lay the padded bag in the case, so the sprockets(gears) are NOT facing the frame, so they can't possibly damage the frame.
  9. Test the fitting of the mounted frame and wheels into the case and make any required adjustments to the seat or handlebars.
  10. Insert the bike frame and ASF into the case, so that the ASF is at the bottom of the case, where the wheels are, and not 'standing on it's head.
  11. Add any additional clothing, padding or other soft materials around the frame to give it extra protection. Add the compression protector (included) near the middle of the case.
  12. Don't leave any loose items inside the box that might fly around and damage the bike frame. Everything should be secured in padded bags, boxes or similar. We also recommed using pipe insulation found in the hardware store for additional protection of yourr frame.
  13. The ASF includes an extra extension piece for the bracket (E), which is needed for mounting 'fully' or downhill forks. We sell an adapter kit for downhill bikes which use a through-axle system. It comes with adapters for every known size fork/axle.
  14. Close the two halves of the case, making sure things don't shift around. The two aluminum profiles should interlock completely around the case, then slide the four latches into the locked position.
  15. Test your packing job by shaking the case and turning it on its side, like a baggage handler would do.
  16. We recommend not locking the case, due to security checks in the baggage area. If you do lock the case, they may be forced to break the locks open.
  17. Don't forget to label your case with both your home and vacation address.
  18. Inspect your case for damage immediately after you arrive and make any insurance claims while you are still at the airport.

Two 'wheel guard' padded bags are included with this case. Additional bags are $18each with purchase of a case.
