Just got myself paid up for a week of singletrack bashing in Andorra! (stoked)
since i took a bike on a plane last, things have changed a little bit, namely with the introduction of uppy downy seatposts!
Considering a reverb is sprung by 200 psi, do we know if there are any issues with taking them on a plane?
equally, if one does let it down just to be safe, are there any issues with getting it back up to pressure?
How about forks and shocks? Hypothetically i was thinking i would let my float36s down, and compress the stantions into the lowers to make them smaller, and also protect the working surface from dings and scrapes. Could there be any issues with negative chambers going a bit wiggy if they are flown in a "compressed" position?
Last time, i went with a well travelled cardboard bike box from my local bikeshed. I recently sold a frame in this box, and subsequently need to replace it.It was a pain in the arse around the airport with no proper handles let alone wheels, Worth investing in a bike bag? any suggestions or recommendations?
anything to avoid.
