- Recommend a Bike Bag
I had a crc bike bike, it struggled to fit my small bullit with van 36’s on it. Was also pita to move around and a bit of a faff to pack so I flogged it favouring bike boxes. But after seeing the evocs in use I was v impressed so bought one the other day. I was still doubtful as to wether my dh bike with jeffing great fox 40’s would fit but it does with ease. Seems mega stable too.
To get to this stage took about 10 mins, not much more to do and its zip up time.

That evoc looks great, but pretty heavy at around 7kg (apparently?). With a DH bike can you still get away without having to pay excess baggage fees? With padding and cardboard sides added to my bag, the whole lot somehow ended up weighing about 28kg (despite having a 17kg bike and 2-3kg bag), the limit is 30 apparently.Posted 6 years agobebMember
+1 for evocs – fantastic bit of design. Easy and stable to wheel around too.
I find the worst bit of a foreign bike hol is packing the bike up at the end when all you want is to chill with a beer and savour the last precious moments in the sun 🙂 Evoc bags make it easy.
As long as you don’t go over 32 kg’s (H&S limit) you’ll be fine. Plus with evocs you don’t need any other packaging the bag’s designed properly in the first place.
Only thing is I’ve only done a couple of trips with mine so can’t comment yet on longevity. And they are a lot of cash. But if you’re planning on doing a fair bit of flying with your bike I’d say they’re worth it.Posted 6 years ago
