    Take some stress out of those travel days.

    Traveling with a bike can be a stressful experience, full of horror stories of broken frames and tense moments watching baggage handlers throw cargo onto conveyor belts and transfer carts. The Thule Round Trip Transition Bike Travel Case eases some of that stress by providing exceptional protection and security in a top-load format that eliminates the need for airport security to remove any padding layers to see what's inside.

    This travel case makes packing your bike easy with an integrated fork-mount stand that lets you break down, build up, and work on your bike with ease. For packing, the top rail of the stand clicks into place in the travel case to securely hold your bike in place. The wheels sit on either side of the frame, and the case topper latches firmly down with heavy-duty clamps to securely cocoon your bike inside.

    The Thule Round Trip Transition Bike Travel Case accommodates both road and mountain bikes and is easily transportable with an oversized handle and two roller wheels.

    solid case and super awesome stand

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For an expensive TT bike, this is the best case there is.

    I've had this case for 12 months and have traveled with it maybe 7 times. Two things I love about this case: 1. when I check it in at the airport, I have no fear that my bike is safe and secure. The bike locks in, there's very little movement and its protected by the wheelbags on either side. With previous bike boxes TSA regularly broke things on the case to open it, broke or lost bike parts when they repacked the bike, and generally didn't understand how to close the case. With this one, I've had no issues. 2. The bike stand is amazing. Its light and so helpful as there's nothing worse than trying to assemble a bike in a hotel room. Mine is excellent quality, I'm not sure what others are complaining about.

    Cons: its big and heavy. Yes, this case is bigger than other cases, You'll need an SUV to pick you up. For me, its worth it for the peace of mind I get leaving my bike with baggage handlers. Its not much heavier than my other cases and I have no problems moving it around (and I'm a girl).

    Awesome case for the right type of rider

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Lets get the cons out of the way up front. Yes, it is a very large case. Perhaps just a few inches larger than the other top cases in one direction or another, but enough to limit the type of vehicle you can fit it in. Minivan - no problem. Jeep - on its side but not straight up. Smaller than that - I don't know. And there is no way you are going to avoid paying the baggage fees.

    Now the positives. First, the bike stand is awesome, so long as you watch the video and practice it one time before your trip. Remember, the stand keeps the bike in a safe position locked inside the case. Second, you can fit any size bike in one way or the other, with less need to dissemble the bike compared to other cases. All I need for my R5 is one 5mm torque wrench. Or you could fit a standard road bike and two sets of wheels. Third, your 10k dream bike is going to arrive unscathed because it is a Thule hard case.

    So - if you don't mind fees or renting a big vehicle and you hate taking your bike apart, but you do want your dream bike to arrive unscathed, this is a great case.

    Not worth it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    While I haven't owned any other travel cases, this is not what I expected. I have owned it for six months and traveled roughly 8 or 10 times with it. It's a big indestructible box with two cheap wheel bags inside. The bike stand is useless. Throw the tripod legs for the stand away. Put the handlebars back on the bike while it's in the case, take the bike out of the case and flip it over to rebuild it. The stand is useless. There is no way to secure the wheel bags inside the case. So if you have a set of expensive carbon wheels, unless you secure them yourself with tape, they just flop around inside the case. Really Thule? You couldn't include a simple way of securing the wheel bags to the case? The inside of the case is the same as the outside. No high density foam liner or anything. Raw hard plastic. Even when the bike is properly secured to the rail, and the rail is properly secured to the case, you can still rock the bike back and forth 5"-6" in each direction. That's a lot of movement and bouncing around...especially if you have ever seen how luggage handlers toss things about. It's heavy and big. With a light road bike it's going to weigh around 45-50lbs, with a big heavy mountain bike it's going to weigh well over 50lbs, with no gear in the case. It is a nightmare to lug around an airport, barely fits in the back of a medium sized SUV. With a little thought and engineering this could be a great case. But for $600, I find it to be a piece of garbage. Add a foam liner, a way to secure the wheel bags and a more secure mounting for the bike and it's a winner. As it stands, it's not worth $100, let alone $600.

    CUMBERSOME

    My boyfriend has one of these and it's heavy, heavy, heavy! It always means paying a huge amount of excess baggage. It also requires a lot of dismantling which isn't so great if you've had a bike fit like me or integrated handlebars like my boyfriend.



    The Scicon AeroTech or AeroComfort TRI are better, much better!

    A part of the buying process needs to be evaluating the airlines fees. This box fits the bill for me. The airlines I will be flying with are Southwest and Jetblue. Two of the more bike friendly airlines. Up to 99lbs for $75 and $50 respectively.

    As for dismantling, taking off handlebars, integrated or not, is also a part of your bike purchasing process. THe new tri bikes are riduculously awesome. But a more simple cockpit will cost you time in a 70.3, but unless you need every second for a WC qualifier, not going to affect me.

    Easy to Use.

    Adding this review to subsidize the pictures below and add a rating to offset the negative reviews below. This is a large case which keeps the bike safe and makes it easy to pack. Its weight is lighter than your average case, but still in the 25 lb range. Add a 25 lb bike and you're right at most airline weight limits- which is pretty normal for a hard case. Personally I prefer a soft case, but this is my favorite hard case I've seen.

    Some Photos

    This case is fairly large, but one of the most secure and probably the easiest I've seen to pack. Mount the fork, attach the bottom bracket, put the wheels in bags, and then remove the handlebar. Very easy with plenty of space. Pictures below are with a Small 29er MTB but as you can see there's plenty of room for much more bike.

    Ginormous!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    You truly need a pick up truck or large SUV to carry this thing around. I have an Audi S4 (A fairly standard size sedan these days.) and couldn't get it in with the back seats folded down.

    How much does this case weigh?

    How much does this case weigh?

    I've seen 35lbs. However, be sure to check the airlines policies. The ones I will be using are Southwest and Jetblue. Both have 99lb limits when paying the extra $75 & $50 respectively. Be sure to know the airlines policies and be prepared for the gate agent to be clueless on what to do. Be patient and nice, referring to the policies stated on the website.
