How do I transport unicycles on airplanes?

How do I transport my unicycle on an airplane? I’m going to the Bahamas and its my golden chance to learn a unispin at the resort we’re going to- but how do I get the unicycle there?Do I put it with my luggage, bring it on board, or what?
Please answer fast ,I’m leaving on the 26th of December- 19 days.

Ok, maybe not sooooo soon, but please reply!!


A search for “airplane” found this from not to long ago.



All seam to be about flying with uni.
Its always better to search first before starting a new thread.

That’s true, but you could at least A. answer his question at least or B. don’t even mention it considering this thread will be dead in 2 days. Maybe he’s like me and could care less about the search engine.

I’d think the best way would be to take your uni apart and put it in another suitcase, or put the pedals, seat post, and seat in your carry on and just try to fit the frame and wheel wheel set in one of your normal suitcases.

Okay I will reply here since you felt the need to let this thread live a bit.
First off, you could care less? So you care then? I could care less about the search button also. That is becuase I care about it. It works well and I find tons of cool things in there, as well as it being good forum etiquette.

But really now. I only stated that “you should use the search before starting a thread” because as a member of this forum, you should. Im not even OG in this place, and I am tired of answering the same thing over and over.

A lot of us take time out of our day to write up usefull answers to peoples questions. That usefull answer will stay there as long as the forum is here. It makes much more sence to look and see if your question has already been asked than starting a new thread on the same topic, which will only clutter up all the actual usefull things here.

To wrap things up, I really only added any comment here beucase I feel the best way to respect new members and also respect all the info the old members have givin is to do 2 things. One explain that searching is better than starting a new thread, and two, provide links to threads that will be usefull to that person.

So dont give me crap for doing the right thing, and please, ground zero, do us all a favor and dont brag about not using the search button. I know you could care less, but maybe you could care a bit more…?

The search feature is very important.
A. Agent Q answered his question much more than you did. He gave the links to similar topics, where his question was answered in depth. Perhaps you should have done the same?
B. All newcomers must learn to use the search in the end. I remember getting yelled at.



Hey Beni, welcome to the forums

the threads that AgentQ linked to should help but the big question is how big is your uni?

basically a small 20" or trials can be broken down and fit in regular luggage
a 24, 26, or possibly a 29 can be put in a hockey bag and checked as “sports equipment”
a 36 will probably need a bike bag, they might try to charge you a bike fee but they shouldn’t if you say it is circus equipment.

In all cases you should at least take the petals off to make it more compact.

Ignore the bickering and have a good trip
