- Bikes on easyjet
looking at flying with easyjet this year and saw their policy:
The bicycle must be packaged in a bicycle box or bag
Only one bicycle per box/bag is permitted
No other items can be carried in the bicycle box/bag (i.e. clothing)
The handlebars must be flush with the frame.
Pedals must be removed or flush against the frame
Bicycles with hydraulic suspensions or brake systems will be accepted.
I was hoping to put my biking clothing & helmet in the bag with it; does anyone have any experience of this?Posted 4 years agocbikeMember
Sometimes the ground handlers will open it, sometimes they don’t.
I’ve put helmets and shoes and pads taped to bike as “protection” in there in the past but carry a plastic bag just in case. If you have a bag, helmet can go in on the way to bulky item drop off. whoops.
if caught, use up the handlers time, be nice and pedantic – they will always break before you. 🙂Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeMember
Knee pads on forks and elbow pads on rear drop out, as packaging,
helmet between forks and BB,
bars wrapped in bubble wrap cable tied to frame,
rear mech and hanger off but tucked inside rear triangle, but not removed from cable,
dropper past removed, bubble wrapped and tied to frame,
pedals off, in a box, inside helmet,
bike box from Halfords cut up and 2 sides as additional protection,
fork stanchions protected with lagging,
rear DO wedged open with a lump of wood,
forks wedged open with one of them plastic things that come with them,
brake pads wedged open with cardboard,
rotors off, in a box, wrapped in fresh kitchen roll.
Standard Easyjet procedure when I’m packing my bike.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Helmet as hand luggage, don’t want it rattling round.
Luke’s methods are a bit overkill if you have decent bag (Evoc etc.) I’m down to rotors off and bars off with a pad spacer in the brakes if I remember.
As for other stuff in the bag never had them checked if they are in weight, other wise clothes etc. are arranged to look like packing.Posted 4 years agoshowermanMember
easyjet give you a total of 50kg to include all travel luggage per tripPosted 4 years ago
your bike bag is a max of 32kg
the rest is for your suitecase and carryon
gets interesting for me as the evoc bikebag is great but comes in at 8kg before putting anything in it i am always 29kg ish with tools and a few odds and ends
as said ^^^^^ if possible carry shoes helmet ect in suitecase if your bike does go walkabout you can at least hire something fingers crossed never happened but many reports on here every year of things turning up later.
