We once went cycling in Tuscany and contemplated taking our own bikes on a plane with us. Wish we had, actually, as we ended up trying to climb a mountain from Pisa to Lucca with 3-gear city bikes.
The decision to take our bikes on the plane would have been much easier if we’d known about this inflatable bike bag. The Binkd Helium is an air-cushioned bike bag that’s designed to pack up your bike as small as possible. It fits a 64cm road frame or a full-suspension road bike and has places to strap all of your components in. All you have to do is zip it up and roll it right up to check in with the handy wheels!
We wonder whether you could avoid aeroplane bike cargo fees with this handy bag?
