Thinking caps on.....Bike case

by Gkam84   February 12, 2013  

Ok you lovely bunch of people, SOMEONE will have an answer for me.

I am currently trying to find a case to hold my trike because I'm trying to go somewhere with it for sportives and little rides.

The train company have said, it can be no larger than 30x70x90 Which, it will just about fit.....

But I don't mind if its slightly larger by a few centimetres here and there, as I doubt they will get the tape measures out.

So thinking caps on and links to something suitable or suggestions please.

I have been trying things like this

But with no luck so far. Weights not to big of an issue if it has some wheels.

How about a standard bike bag? It will just slide inside if its a flexible type. Then you can just roll it up and zip tie it till your ride is done and Voilla.

But its much bigger than I need and a little to big to go on a train Thinking

Don't know about bike bags, but what about a custom size cardboard box? Just collapse it and store somewhere while riding.

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

YES, great idea Mr Not Fast Enough Big Grin

Then I just need to get a couple of luggage straps and a little dolly skate board style thing to wheel it around on.

Will get a quote today Nerd
