[QUOTE=iTrod;20710968]One could get this for a mere $1,130 (890 GBP). Only wheels, seat, handlebars need be removed. It weighs in at 27.5 lb and is probably one of the more indestructible boxes on the planet. No need to remove the rear derailleur! For more info:[/QUOTE]

Might be a fine box (if you're an internet millionaire), but it looks like you're going to be stuck paying oversize and overweight airline fees with that monster. OK, my bike is big, and I've got a pound of Brooks saddle on it, but my 17 pound S&S case with bike, tools, pump, and saddle bag weighs 48-48.5 pounds when I check it. You'd need a light bike with few to no accessories to keep a 27 pound bike bag under 50 pounds checked weight.
