We were recently featured on Urban Velo, and it was super cool. Here's what they had to say about us:
Riding your very own bike far away from home is an incredible way to experience a new place, but it can get expensive depending on how you plan on taking your bike with you, and how often you plan on doing it. For onesy-twosy trips shipping it using one of the big guys is probably the best option, or just eating the airline fees. Travel more than once a year and a custom bag or travel bike might be a reasonable option. Spoiled Rotten Life is a DIY life and bike blog, and recently posted images of a custom bike airline travel bag. The pictured bag fits a 56 cm frame and pair of 700c wheels, fitting it into a diamond shape that while most likely oversized for the airline regulations looks no bigger than a large suitcase, and proves hard to measure given its shape and soft construction. While soft bags don’t provide much protection against baggage handler gorillas, I’ve traveled all over the place with a soft sided bag and haven’t suffered more than a hearty handful of dings and scratches. If you can talk and smile your way past the bag check bike/oversized process and are willing to eat a charge here and there if caught, this diamond bag is a solid design choice. Look for custom bags for about $150 in 2014, a pretty great price that pays for itself in a single trip. Check out more at www.spoiledrottenlife.com
