Round Trip Sport Bike Travel Case

Reinforced with a rugged polyethylene construction and foam padding, the Thule Round Trip Sport Bike Travel Case protects your favorite bike from overzealous baggage handlers and rough airline transport. Four heavy-duty straps bolster the case's contents from coming undone during transport, while integrated wheels make for easy rolling.

The case splits in half for fast loading, with an internal divider separating your frame and components from the wheels for added peace of mind. It's roomy enough to fit most road and cyclocross bikes, also accommodating smaller mountain bikes. Internal dimensions are 45 x 28.5 x 10in, with the external dimensions coming in at 47 x 30.5 x 10.5in.

Good Protection

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

We bought these for the occasional trip with our bikes. The case is big enough for a bike and all the accessories we needed to bring- including cycling shoes and helmets. We put clothes in zip-lock bags to keep them together. We took pictures of how the bikes fit so we could get them packed quickly on the return home. They are durable and didn't even get a scratch from the airlines

Thank you for the great review

Hi Michael, do you know if a full suspension mountain bike fits in the "Thule Round Trip Sport Bike Travel Case"?

I just came from riding GFNY Mexico, case worked just fine, the bike was protected 100%. Room enaugh for the bike ( 56 cm), foot pump, uniforms, helmet and in my way back home, some dirty clothing. A 29" will fit perfectly inside.

Do you need to remove the handlebars, or can you simply twist them sideways? Thanks

Adequate but heavy

This case is bomb-proof, no doubt about it, but it is 30 lbs. empty, meaning that most airlines will charge an overage fee if anything (bike, tools, kit) exceeds 20 lbs. The other improvements would be to make the shells nest together for storage in a car trunk, and better latches. The quality of these items is much lower than on my other Thule products.

The dimensions exceed the checked baggage fee limits (l+w+h of 65in.), so regardless of the 50 lb weight limit, expect to pay the overage fee for dimensions alone.


Does a Specialized Roubaix 61 fit in

Yes. I have a 58 that fits with plenty of room and have loaned to a friend that ride a Roubaix in 61. Further, for the price, I don’t think this case can be beat. It is not the most comfortable to carry around airports but it does the job and is bombproof!


Do ya think I will be able to fit a Trek Madone 5.5 SL, 52 cm, standard triangle road bike inside? Thanks



I have a 29er Gary Fisher Genesis 2.0 Does it fit in this box?Thule?



What are the main differences between this case and the Thule Round Trip Transition Bike Case (retails for $600). I have an R3 cervelo (50cm) and I would like to buy the best case (quality, safety and price). Any suggestions or feedback is welcome, please email at Thank you!

The Round Trip Transition Bike Case is larger with interior dimensions of Internal height 37 in Internal length 54 in Internal depth 15.5 in and is also a little heavier. With a 50cm bike you won't have issues with space on some shipping cases as someone with a large frame size would.


Does it fit tri bikes? Hows the padding...

Does it fit tri bikes? Hows the padding on the inside?

Hey! This is also a similar situation as the EEP bag that we have. It will fit a medium size tri bike, but you may have to take the bars off. The wheels travel great in these and there are large pads inside to protect. These tend to be a tight squeeze, and I may have had to sit on my box a time or two when stuffing it full. I have never had any issues when traveling with my mountain bikes or road bikes in this box. Email me at if you need further insight! -Sarah


How much does it weigh?

How much does it weigh?

The weight we have listed for this item is 14.80lbs.

Hmmm. Bill above says 30lbs empty. Dan below says 15lbs empty.

My Specialized Roubaix with nothing more than additional padding and tools to put the bike back together come in at exactly 50 lbs at the airport. It is a fairly heavy case but its amazing.


do the handlebar and or rear derrailler...

do the handlebar and or rear derrailler have to be removed

DBUP650303, It all depends on the size of the frame. It is almost certain you will need to remove the handlebar. However, having to remove the rear derailleur would definitely be dependent on frame size. I would say if you had a small frame you should be alright, whereas a larger frame may require some attached parts to be removed.
