Moving the bikes and carry-on luggage around the airports, hotel and taxis was very easy. Compared to our previous air travel experiences with our full-sized diamond frame tourers, this was a pleasure. The black case contains the folded, dissembled Bike Friday and some general luggage. The red case has the pannier and other carry on luggage. The black case for check-in is 22 kg. The red case for carry-on is less than 7 kg.
