Question for Evoc bike bag users
Just slip mine in. Find it very satisfactory. Mind you never had a problem when I had a cardboard box either. I do regular trips flights to Holland with a carbon 29er or carbon road bike and have had no issues. Suppose it will all be bent to bug….ery in a fortnights time.Posted 4 years ago
On my first use, they did manage to crush one of the pvc wheel reinforcement. I’ve now replaced them with alu ones.
Caliper removal is a two second job for most as they’re post mount calipers on IS frames. However, the wife’s forks are an H mount, pm to pm so the alignment makes it a bit more involved.Posted 4 years agorichiethesilverfishMember
I’ve travelled with mine around ten times now and have never removed the rear mech/etc.
I’ve not had a problem so far. Infact, I don’t even take the pedals off anymore.
As you say though – it is a two second job so if you have the time (and you’re not lazy like me) I guess it’s worth doing to be on the safe side.
The bags offer amazing protection and are easy to use but I can’t help thinking that even if you locked your bike in a safe and checked it in some baggage handler somewhere would find a way of damaging it!Posted 4 years agoturboferretSubscriber
Mine has been used about twice a month for the past year, and never had any issues with MTB, road or TT bikes.
I don’t take my pedals off, and for the rear mech I undo it slightly to let it sit close to the chainstay then tighten again.
I have added a cut-up foam camping mad to add to the wheel pocket padding, probably through not removing my pedals I’ve managed to scuff up a rim slightly.
Overall a massive improvement on all my previous bags, especially the fact that it doesn’t sit the bike on the chainring.

Cheers folks. Seems I am going a bit over the top with mine.
There’s no harm in going OTT. Folk always laugh at me and think I’m too precious about my bike due to the way I pack it…I’d much rather be like that, than arrive on my holiday with a damaged bike, especially in more remote places where there’s no decent bike shops.Posted 4 years agopdwMember

This. It’s not like baggage handlers apply an equal amount of violence every time. Most of the time going OTT won’t be necessary, but every now and again it’ll fall off the trailer, or get run over by a car/truck/plane and you’ll be glad that you did.Posted 4 years ago
