Which hard shell travel case?

    I intend to travel abroad in the near future with my bike. Can anyone recommend, from experience, the best bike travel case to buy? I'm looking at keeping the bike from being damaged and ease of handling to & from the airport.

    I bought the Revolution hard case from EBC. I have not used it yet but it seems OK apart from its weight, about 14kg I think, and the catches on the side which look flimsy.

    Many airlines have a weight limit of 20kg for hold baggage for cattle class so you will probably have pay extra for carrying a bike in this bag.

    I've been looking at the cost of air travel as well - seems that the average price to carry a bike is an extra £15.
    14kg --wow that seems heavy!
