21 Step Guide to Pack Your Mountain Bike for Travel in 21 Minutes. Ish.

Weve been amazed by both how often people ask us for advice on packing bikes into bags, and how little advice there is available on the world wide interweb thingummy about how to do it properly. Actually weve also been pretty appalled by some of the packed bikes which we have seen being hauled out of bike bags; either in a throughly unloved and lousy, or OTT 2 tonne marshmallow, state of packing! The idea of this guide is to help you get the right balance between just enough packing to stop anything getting damaged and not using so much that the check-in attendants rub their hands together gleefully whilst ££ signs appear in their greedy, dead eys….we love excess baggage fees as you can tell! With this guide youll hopefully be able to avoid them!

bah, too much work and time wasted. Just remove the two wheels, pedals, turn and fix the handlebar and put all in a big travel bag (better rigid).

See 1min 15secs for brake spacers.

Travelling to the alps this summer, taking a bike for the first time – where do I get the gear you used? Spacers, frame projectors etc?
Also, what tools will I need to have to do the Job at this end, and again in Morzine!

you don't include putting the small spacers into the disc brake gaps once the wheels are out, I *highly* recommend this. 🙂

Happy to help!
