"The Economy Bike Case"

The Crateworks Pro XL-C Plastic Bike Box is our pick for the Best Economy Bike Case. It offfers a big step up from any cardboard bike box in terms of durability and protection. The Pro XL-C is constructed of corrugated plastic and thus is more resistant to impact and water (wetsuits, shoes, sweaty clothes, etc). The Pro XL- C exterior meets the 130 shipping size restriction yet is roomy inside to pack most road bikes, triathlon bikes or even a full suspension 29er. The Pro XL-C uses the layer packing method where both wheels are removed and separated from the rest of the bike with protective layers. One of the layers is a frame plate with tie downs to secure your bike during transport. Overall the case offers improved protection over an cardboard box and will hold up to more trips, but we wish it came with a fork block, rear drop out protector and foam tube wraps for even more protection.

  • Ultra durable external CORR-X construction with over 400 sq.inches of hook and loop fasteners at the corners
  • Internal CORR-X frame plate with multiple hook and loop tie downs
  • Includes protective liners, foam chocks and external H-Strap
  • Smart reinforced handholds
  • Meets shipping 130 size restriction
  • Outer Dimensions: 46x30x11 in (114x79x29 cm)
  • Inside dimensions of 44x29x10 in (111x76x28 cm)
  • Weight: 22 lbs empty
  • Folds flat when not in use

BikeFlights.com ships the Crateworks Pro XL-C across country for around $70 and ships it to to Europe for around $325.

Buy It:  If you ship your bike in re-used cardboard boxes and want better protection and to lock in low shipping rates.

Forget It: If you lack the mechanical skills or the desire to pack your own bike.

I purchased a Crateworks bike box from BikeFlights when I decided to spend several weeks exploring Yosemite on my cyclocross bike. I actually flew with my bike on the way out, and was suprised at how easy it was to construct and pack, and how roomy it is! I was able to fit ALL of my cycling gear (helmet, clothes, pack, shoes, food, etc.) in the extra space, which made it much easier to navigate the trip there. On the way back I shipped the bike via BikeFlights and was pleased to see the Box on my front step, looking like new. This box is a must-have for people that don't like to vacation without their bikes, or racers that want something durable, easy to clean, and easy to break down to transport their beloved bikes!

Rating Crate Works bike box: Great solution
I purchased a Crate Works bike box about a year ago from bikeflights.com (they've also been great with shipping my bikes and helping with airfare in the past). I wanted to try the Crate Works box for two reasons: 1) It is much lighter since it is made out of strong (but thin) sheets of plastic, and 2) the case folds flat for storage when not in use. I've traveled with the case on international flights, hauled it onto trains, into cabs, and in and out of cars. So far, the case has performed impeccably well. My only worry at the start was durability, but this has not been a problem so far. If it gets damaged in the future, the case is modular so it would be possible to simply order the needed part and not an entirely new box. Lastly, I also ordered the attachable wheel truck so that I could roll it through airports and train stations -- I HIGHLY recommend doing this. Summary: great box, light weight, durable, easy to store.
