Few things are more vulnerable to the capricious hobgoblins of travel-related dings and dents than bicycles. Whether it's as simple as a bent derailleur hanger or as serious as a structural failure, the woes of traveling with a bike or two are assuaged by Tri All 3 Sports' Velo Safe II Pro-Series Bike Case. Quick-release mounts hold the fork in place while straps and strategically placed foam blocks cradle the frame and crankset.

I've beaten the heck out of the Tri All 3 Sports Velo Safe Case and am a huge fan. I've traveled extensively to stage races with my road and TT bikes, and this case made it a very pleasant experience.
The best part is obviously being able to pack up 2 complete bikes within 15 minutes -- pretty great! But the bonus is that it gives you a built in trolley for carrying all of your other bags through the airport. You can put any additional luggage on top of the case and then wheel it up to the baggage check. I've even walked it over a mile from the Pasadena Goldline back to my apartment.
Final selling point -- if you ever have to take a public bus system to the airport after a race (which I wouldn't necessarily recommend), this case fits perfectly in the wheelchair lift, making it easy to carry with you on planes, trains and automobiles.
So yeah, maybe I'm biased because I used this case during some of my favorite times racing bikes, but if you need to travel with 2x bikes on a regular basis, it's hard to go wrong with this one.
Will a full suspension 29er fit in this box? I have a Pivot Mach 429.

The problem with this bike case is that the wheels are prone to damage (good luck if this happens when when traveling to your race venue). I called the company to see if they would replace a broken caster and was instructed to go to Home Depot and buy one myself. When I explained that the company website says they guarantee everything on the case I was told that they have no control over who handles the case and therefore don't know if it was handled properly. OF course they have no control! Neither do I! That's the nature of shipping a bike. On this planet, you don't get to interview bag handlers at the airline, fedex, etc. If there's a more serious problem with the case I doubt that this company would stand behind any guarantee.
Is there enough room for the wheelsets too...
Is there enough room for the wheelsets too or are they packed separately?
I was only able to pack one front wheel with two bikes in this case. I borrowed a Tri All hard wheel case which holds 1 front and 2 rear wheels nicely. I would like to know if anyone has been able to put 4 wheels with 2 road bikes in this box.
