Hi Millar, I am now thinking maybe the bike box will be too heavy I'm going to Australia and it is included in my baggage allowance I do have a bike bag but was going to just put rest of my luggage in if I got a box do you know what box weighs ? Thanks Stewart

I have seen numerous people at airports who have simply wrapped their bikes in cellophane or plastic wrapping type stuff
The idea behind doing this is baggage handlers can see what it is and treat it less robustly than a box or hard case
Its a leap of faith when bike is carbon, but apparently it works and wrapped bikes have been perfectly sound when returned to owners after flights
I have cling film you can have and also a hard case you can borrow if needed

Stewart, we have a fairly old, heavy hard case box that you’re welcome to use if you haven’t sorted anything else out yet.

Yes, it’s a bit old but does the job. Strong plastic rather than anything more solid. You’re welcome to take a look. I’m in Stirling.
