Best hard shell case for travel?(3 posts)

Best hard shell case for travel?Zonic Man

I'm looking to get a couple of good bike boxes for travel to Europe in a couple of weeks.

It is my understanding the "Trico Iron Case" is the best on on the market.

Some other ones I should be considering?

Also looking at ones that can take 2 bikes.

Thanks

I've got the 2 bike model and I love it. Its a bit bulkier than some of the other cases out there, but aside from that the thing is great. When I moved overseas I was forced to pack ALL my cycling crap. Thankfully spare wheels found another ride, but I was able to stuff my road and mtb bike in the case along with all tools, stands, clothes and other random crap. For smaller trips its great because you can pretty much put whatever you want in it.

Game on.

If you are looking for a bike case that carries two bikes, then I think you limited to the Trico brand. Keep in mind that you will probably be charged extra for such a big package as well.
If you want a singe bike case, for the money, Supergo has one that they are blowing out (old model, discontinued) that has served me well for about a year now.
the thing I like best about this case is that it is a hard shell, it looks like a suitcase, and rolls on 4 casters so it's really easy to get it around the airport.
It also comes with nice padded wheelbags that could use at other times. I think I paid $149 bucks for mine. Can't beat the price.
