I've been using this bag for a couple of years flying with my mountain bike. Safe so far. Amazing value.
It's an exceptionally well designed bag, considering it's low cost.
- It has a folding hard bottom - more protection.
- Round plastic pins make it actually rollable!
- Pockets for wheels with fixation. Put a wheel it and strap it with a velcro - no movement. Will protect the frame from the sides.
I put some extra protection on the frame and forks - pipe insulators from a hardware store work best.
I also recommend buying wheel bags and using them together - more protection and tidier.
The only drawback compared to bags costing £250-300 - lack of the hard bottom - as mentioned above, it's folding. Its shapelessness makes it hard to leave it standing, for example on an airport bag trolley. But you can replace this with some DIY.
No issues so far. Would need a lot of padding for a flight but fine for car transport.
