Getting a bike into a bike box

Discussion in 'Bicycle Mechanics and Repairs' started by arranandy, 21 Jun 2008.

  1. Is there a knack or technique on getting my bike into a plastic box carrier box. I've just spent nearly an hour strugglling to get my Bianchi into an Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op plastic bike box:angry: I've done the obvious things like taking the bars/pedal/rear mech off but I just can't get the box to close. Am I missing something obvious? Should I put the bike in first with wheels on top or vice versa?

    All suggestions/advice gratefuuly received

    There's nobody sitting on the bike still, is there?
    Sorry, can't be of any constructive help....:smile:
    Good luck :biggrin:
  3. Got it sussed after 3 or 4 attempts:smile:. Going to the TdF in 3 weeks time with my bike so wanted to have a dry run at getting the bike in the box instead of struggling the night before I leave
