Anyone who has traveled with a BMX bike knows it can be a little tricky when it comes to flying. Getting your bike on the plane without having to pay insane fees is a little bit tricky, but there are a few tricks that can literally save you hundreds of dollars, even if you only fly once. When it comes to traveling with a BMX bike, Brad Simms has undoubtedly logged more miles than most BMX riders and has been to more countries on this planet than most people will in an entire lifetime. With that travel, Brad has mastered the art of packing his bike in a Golf Bag to slide it through the baggage check at the airport without getting hit with that $150 – $200 fee that people can get hit with when they roll up to the airport.
