the RD is unbolted
Front brake cable stay connected
Rear brake cable i un bolt
RD and FD i un-bolt
seatpost off
pedals off
fork pull out

it's more than, a bigger bag for sure. But i'll rebuild my bike > paying 150$ round trip fees per trip, anyday.

when asked about contents i usually say physical therapy equipment. Never had an issue with damage (outside my own doing) with any hardcase or softcase .... knock on wood. In side of my soft case i usually have some stiff cardboard, cut up pool noodles over the tubes of bikes) and random towels anyways.
