Ed I can’t help you, but I thought I remember that someone had commented on not using a box, because “they” may need to open it before it goes on a plane. Which leads me to believe they might leave it open after checking it. So, maybe the box may not be an alternative.
Boxes still work fine. Just bring the unicycle packed in the box, but not taped or otherwise sealed. Security will do their inspection, then seal the box for you. I’ve done it several times. The only challenge is that you can’t touch the box after you’ve given it to security. They have to do the re-packing and taping/roping.
Thanks for the heads-up on the Box-n-Airport thing.
I’ll check into that Army duffel bag thing as well. I have 2 or 3 of them kicking around full of Whitewater gear. (All those years on active duty paying off!) If it fits the Gazz, that may be the ticket.
Or, if someone else out there has THE travel bag, I’m still looking for that as well.
You can use one of those bags that road cyclists use to carry their spare wheels with. I got a Mavic Crossmax wheelbag from my LBS- it will fit most 24-29’ wheels but you may need to take the tyre off. Bike shops often have a few spare so you may even get one for free.
I prefer a good wheelbag- line it with cardboard for added protection. I find a wheelbag easier to foldup and carry once you reach your destination.
