    Hiya,

    I'm looking to take me bike to crete late august for two weeks- does anybody in the north west have a bike bag I can hire/loan for the duration?;)
     
  2. yes - a SciCon- the soft, grey one - without wheels, just a shoulder strap and carrying points etc...
    You'll just need to get some decent pipe lagging and a bit of foam to zip tie around the cassette teeth...blah blah.. I'm sure you know all that dan

    Keep your options open for a better offer though:smile:

    They're under £40 now so you don't want to waste too much time or money getting hold of one. You may even want to use it again!

    Don't forget to get a couple of those little plastic bits that sit between the droupouts that stop your forks and frame getting bent inwards in transit. Your LBS should have loads going spare. I've got a bag you could borrow but I'm in East London so not very local. Wiggle have them for £40
     
  7. gezza - who posts here, got a neat chain holder thingy which slipped in where the axle goes - (his bag iswas nice sparkly new like his bike...;))

    Wiggle bag seems a good deal too.

    Old spindles will do the "don't crush the forks/stays" job very well too.
