My wife and I recently purchased an EVOC travel bag for our road bikes. This was our first trip traveling with our bikes to participate in "The most beautiful bikeride in America", a Charity bike event and ride around Lake Tahoe. Honestly we couldn't be happier with the bags. The both came in about 4 lbs under the 50 lb limit which included helmet, pedals, shoes, a couple rags and swim noodles around the various tubes of the bike (just for a little extra protection). They pack very snugly and rolling them through the airport was so easy. We will definitely be traveling more with our bikes. Looking forward to attempting a mountain bike trip with it as well. Thanks for engineering such a well made travel bag!
