|Does anyone have experience with S&S couplings (that let you take your bike in a small suitcase on the airplane)?
I am thinking of getting a new frame with these and just wanted some input.

|I have a couple of pairs of close personal friends who own S&S equipped tandems. One of the bikes is even in a huge, custom frame size. Both of them have extensive cycling experience and they both love their bikes. I asked them about frame feel and they both indicate they can't sense the difference.|

|A friend has a new, large size custom steel bike with S&S couplings (comotion). He loves the ride of the bike. His frame size is large enough that even with the break-down the frame barely fits the smaller luggage-sized case. No word on durability yet, but he loves the travel options and the ride.|

|a tandem with S&S couplings:
people I know, riding a Calfee tandem with S&S couplers (they are going to take it to PBP in August):
The alternative: a bike friday tandem:
(on the Davis 600km, this one was faster than the calfee tandem :-) )
