If I got a dollar for the number of times people have asked what the best way to get their bike on a flight without getting hassled by the airport staff, I’d probably be able to hop a flight to Australia. There are only a few BMX specific bags that riders have for an options, the Nest bag and then the other is the popular DK Golf Bag. Odyssey decided they wanted to make something a little more up to their specs, and that lead to the Nest bag to make traveling even easier. The exterior of the bag is kept simple with minimal details to help avoid attention with bike specific handle locations along with re-inforced and riveted handles and heavy duty wheels to keep things rolling smooth when you’re running late for a flight. Inside you can find two compartments with a divider that allows you to keep your bike separate from other things like clothes, also giving you a chance to dodge a quick bag check. There are multiple tie downs and an interior tool pouch to keep everything in place and organized without getting everything all greasy.
The Nest bag is available through all shops and mail-orders that carry Odyssey worldwide now for around $139.99 in black only.
Another great option is the DK Bicycles Golf Flight Bag.
