Anyone got a MUni Travel Bag they will sell?

Post by ratherbekayakin » Thu, 21 Aug 2003 04:13:31


UNI dot com is sold out and says they are discontinued, and Roach hasn't
responed to my email.  

I'm gonna be flying to Georgia for training for a month around October
or November.  

I know I can use a really big suitcase or even the box it came in, but I
am hoping to get the bag if possible.  

Anyone not needing theirs anymore?
Anyone know where I can buy one?

I'm looking for one that will fit the 24inch Gazz and KH seat.

Boxes still work fine. Just bring the unicycle packed in the box, but
not taped or otherwise sealed. Security will do their inspection, then
seal the box for you. I've done it several times. The only challenge is
that you can't touch the box after you've given it to security. They
have to do the re-packing and taping/roping.

Ed I can't help you, but I thought I remember that someone had commented
on not using a box, because "they" may need to open it before it goes on
a plane.  Which leads me to believe they might leave it open after
checking it.  So, maybe the box may not be an alternative.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Box-n-Airport thing.

I'll check into that Army duffel bag thing as well.  I have 2 or 3 of
them kicking around full of Whitewater gear.  (All those years on active
duty paying off!) If it fits the Gazz, that may be the ticket.

Or, if someone else out there has THE travel bag, I'm still looking for
that as well.

You can use one of those bags that road cyclists use to carry their
spare wheels with.  I got a Mavic Crossmax wheelbag from my LBS- it will
fit most 24-29' wheels but you may need to take the tyre off.  Bike
shops often have a few spare so you may even get one for free.

I prefer a good wheelbag- line it with cardboard for added protection.
I find a wheelbag easier to foldup and carry once you reach your
destination.
