I just wrote up a post on my blog on how I packed my geared 36 with a disc brake without taking the disc or frame off. Check it out. If I get a chance, I’ll copy over some more of the pictures here but for now there is a little preview below on how I protect everything.
Well documented Scott. Like the blog too.
Are the airline fees pretty crazy for schlepping a 36?
And here I thought the steps would be like this:
- Ride really fast.
- Grab brake rally hard
- Now you are flying with a geared 36!
While the bag is technically oversized baggage, it is just barely so. Because of this I have only been charged an oversize bag fee once in all my travels. It still incurs the regular bag fees that most airlines are charging for domestic flights now-a-days.
Well I was talking about flying for at least an hour Corbin. For short flights, the only protection I use is kneepads, gloves, and a helmet.
