I’m writing this review in the middle of winter. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s grey, and it’s generally rather miserable. There’s nothing I’d rather do than get outside on my bike in decent weather. Unfortunately, if I want to do that, the only option is going to involve an aeroplane. Flying with a bike isn’t that big of a deal provided you’ve got a quality case, but as always, the question is which one?
To help find the right protection for your bike on an aeroplane, we’ve got an expansive list of the best bike travel cases. In that list, there are hardshell options and softshell options and one thing you might notice is that many of the cases require disassembly.

One of those is the Scicon Aerocomfort 3.0 road bike travel bag, which like its closest competitor, the Evoc Road Bike Bag Pro, only asks that you remove your wheels and pedals.

These plates sit under the four wheels that rotate 360 degrees. They also cap off the edges of a rectangular section that makes up the base. Like the rest of the Scicon bag, it’s soft with dense padding and covered in an…
