I'm trying to take a buss trip, and they buss company doesn't have racks for bicycles, and in order for me to take my bike, my means of transportation, they want me to put it in a bag or case. The only cases and bags i can find require me to tear the bike completely down, which i can't do.

Do they make bags where you can leave your bike assembled, so i meet their requirements. I have to ride to the buss stop, and need my bike assembled when i get to my destination so i can ride to where i need to go... and why don't all buses have bike racks.

Hey BikerinNE,
I think with most bike bags. You will only need to remove the peddles and the front and rear tires. The rest of the bike should fit in the bags fairly easily with the tires on both sides of the bike. The only problem would getting to the bus station and getting it in the bag.

This one on Ebay, looks like you don't have to remove the peddles.
Hope this help.:rolleyes:

It shows the different options. I would suggest shipping your bike rather than hasseling with it on the bus.
