I'm hoping to start a new career in the next 6 months which will involve travelling a fair bit... Along the lines of 6 weeks away, and 3 weeks at home.
With that in mind, considering travelling with a bike and the difficulties involved. I'll be pitching up at a major airport (probably Glasgow), flying to another destination (probably a couple of hops), before jumping in a taxi to go to the accomodation.
My bike is a 27lb carbon frame full sus trail bike. Even if I went simpler with a hardtail I wouldn't save much weight. I'm more concerened about the size once packed up. Don't want to arrive at the other end and non of the taxi's are able to carry a bike box/bag.
Any experience of this kind of travelling? Hints/tips/suggestions to get a hardtail to make life easier? Anyone had work pay for the flights but they've paid for the bike to travel seperately?
