Bike travel by air
A recent post by Yorgo Tloupas, only adds to my desire to build up a single speed bike. It solves one of the problems of travelling to new city: getting around without spending a fortune on taxis or having to figure out the public transport riddle (admittedly some cities are fantastically simple).
I've spoken to a number of people about checking in a bike as part of your luggage and this little write-up just cements the brilliance of the concept. There are still problems to overcome though; last time I flew I was carrying a crate containing two lamps for the exhibition I was attending,. I don't like my chances of hauling that and the bike through the terminal, let alone riding with it.
