As I recently discovered, safely transporting your bike on an airplane can be tricky. The bike I used for that trip was a 10 year old much abused Marin Hybrid Bike. But let's say I was transporting a two or three thousand pound prized road bike. I wouldn't exactly want to wrap it in a plastic bag and hope for the best.
That's where a bike bag such as those sold by Italian company Scicon come in handy. A little while back the company got in touch with me to offer a Scicon AeroComfort 2.0 bag which retails at Â£363.04 for testing. I told them to send it over!
Packing your bike
With these bags there's always a worry that packing your bike in there will be unnecessarily complicated and time consuming. Fortunately Scicon has created a video that explains the entire process. After you've completed it a few times, it should take you around 5 minutes to safely get your bike in there.
I really like the two separate compartments in the bag for the wheels. Not only can you easily store road bike wheels in there, you can also store larger mountain bike wheels. When you are spending so much for a bag it's good to have that flexibility.
The only issue I came across during the packing is that wide mountain bike handlebars won't fit (my bars are 59cm in length). However, that can be solved by loosening the bars and pushing them more tightly in to the bag. It's an annoying extra step but then mountain bike bars are huge!
Overall, the bike packs in very snuggly inside the bag and as long as you follow the steps you'll keep it very safe.
Features of the Scicon AeroComfort 2.0
There's a lot to love about the Scicon AeroComfort 2.0. For a start, the wheels on the bottom make it easy to move the bike around when it is stored inside the bag. For anyone who's transported a bike by plane thatâ€™s a huge advantage as a packed down bike is really uncomfortable to carry.
The strap provides another way of carrying your bike. Fortunately, it has lots of padding around the shoulder making it as comfortable as possible.
A TSA approved luggage lock is also included. If you are travelling to America this will no doubt come in useful.
There's also a tag for you to add your name and address in case the luggage is lost along the way. Admittedly you may want to go for something a little more visible as on quick inspection this is hard to spot.
Finally, for when your bike is not being stored inside the bag, it does pack down in to a neat package that should fit under your bed. This is useful also for when you reach your destination and you need to store the Scicon AeroComfort bag while you are off cycling.
Safely transporting your bike
The single most important feature of a bike bag is of course to keep the bike safe. The Scicon AeroComfort 2.0 achieves this through clever design and this is where you can begin to justify the big initial expense in buying the bag. There's padding in all the right places so you know your sensitive bike components will be cared for. Also, the way the bike is stored inside the bag feels very safe and secure.
If it's good enough for the Garmin team to protect their bikes, then it will be good enough for most purposes.
Overall, I'm really impressed by the Scicon AeroComfort 2.0. Whilst initially the price tag may give you a bit of a heart attack, if protecting your bike is important to you and you'll be using it a few times throughout the year then it's worth the expenditure.
So who is this bag ideal for? If your bike is worth less than the bag, then this isn't really the solution for you. However, if you are transporting an expensive mountain bike, touring bike or road bike then you'll appreciate the Scicon AeroComfort.
Packing your bike is quick and easy and there are not too many difficult components to remove that would make set up at the other end a hassle.
The Scicon AeroComfort takes away the pains of storing and transporting a bike. For that we give it a big thumbs up and a London Cyclist seal of approval.
The Scicon AeroComfort is available from Wiggle for Â£363.04 and there's plenty more information on the manufacturers website.
Ideally suited to road bikes but also accommodating mountain bikes, the AeroComfort is a real top of the range winner that provides plentiful protection for expensive bikes. We loved how quickly you can pack and unpack your bike.
