Bike Bag Rental
At the Bikerack we offer a Bicycle Bag hire service for those travelling abroad with their bikes.
Bicycle bags are specially designed to allow you to transport your bicycle safely and conveniently when travelling by plane, car or boat. With built in padding, a security frame and durable roller wheels bike bags make it a lot easier to travel with a disassembled bike than a standard cardboard box while reducing the chance of damage in transit.
While regular travellers may justify owning their own bicycle travel bag for riders who only occasionally travel with their bike or who do not wish to store a bulky bag when not in use, bike bag rental is a convenient and cost-effective solution.
We choose the durable and reliable Evoc Bike Bag Pro bags* for our rental fleet which are a versatile bike case that fits everything from road bikes to large 29" full-suspension mountain bikes. With integrated wheel bags, ample padding, well thought out fastening straps and convenient castor wheels the bike bag pro is our top pick for transporting your bike safely and conveniently.*We reserve the right to offer an alternative bike bag from a different brand subject to availability.
How to pack your bike
Packing a bike bag is a relatively simple process that involves partial dissassembly of your bicycle to allow it to fit inside the padded bike case. Use the included padding to secure your bicycle and prevent damage during shipping.
To pack and unpack your bicycle you will require some basic tools which are not supplied. Typically a set of allen keys and a large allen key or pedal wrench is all that is necessary to pack and unpack the bike but the exact tools needed may vary depending on your bicycle.
We've attached a handy video below which shows the process of packing the bag or download Evoc's official packing instructions below.
