yep...it's definitely over the limit when properly measured.

they like to sell the unusual dimensions as a positive -- that it is easy to mis-measure (and therefore under-measure).

technically the agent was right. IME, it is rare to even get questioned about it, much less measured. if it happens 5% of the time, you still come out ahead.

it just LOOKS so much smaller than any other bike bag. that makes it easy for people to believe it's not a bike.
