Go MGTOW: DEFINITELY get a HARD-SHELL suitcase specifically sized for your Brompton folding bike, otherwise the Attendant at check-in will see that there is a bicycle in a soft-sided bag and will charge you $150 for checking-in a bicycle. Plus; the hard shell will prevent handling damage to your rather EXPENSIVE ($2,000 +) bicycle, and you don't want that. In Canada, any wheeled vehicle, be it bike, baby carriage, or wheel chair, has to be checked in. They cannot be carried onto the airplane.

Explore By Pedalling: great but why bother taking the seat off. no need

PAUL GDX: A great video! Appreciate! Clever!

nick sim: Beware of the front wheel skids!

Laurentius Soepomo: awesome

James Langford: Very cool! I want to travel from Europe to the States and back with my Brompton, but I have a couple of questions:

1. Since most airlines only allow you to carry on one piece of luggage, how can you get on on the place with both the Brompton and the T-bag?

2. I've bought my tickets, but it doesn't say on my e-tickets what kind of airplane I'll be flying on. Is there any way of finding out in advance?

Thanks again for this fine video.

veffari: THAT. Was informative, thank you sir!

Fazurin Jamaludin: This is awesome! Thanks for this video.

Isaac Senderov: Shalom aleichem, Matt! I want to do the same with my Bike Friday Pakit. Will I be able to do that? When it's folded it slightly longer (30"x17.75"x12.25"). Thanks

80MileKyle: you can put the case on the rack

massoud999: Shkoyach Matt

Explore By Pedalling: great stuff

William Bartholomew: Thanks for making this very thoughtful presentation.

Girlspeedo: Legend 👍🏻

Paul Lee: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. I appreciate the details.

Mark Nichol: Great detail. Thanks! Giving it a try this weekend

Jose Ballester: Matt, first time looking at a video from you. Fantastically detailed. Bravo and keep doing them like that.

Miguel Marcos: Excellent and helpful.

Bill Reals: Get the extended seat post, with that you just use the QR to pull out the seat. I got rid of the awful stock pedals and put on QR pedals, i remove those and put them in my carry-on. Don't waste your time covering your Brompton in a bag, TSA is more amused that anything else, nor does the airline care. I carry the DIMPA bag with me in my carry-on should they ever ask me to gate check in. In 8 flights, I've never had to gate check it, I just put it in the overhead bin. Also, the Brompton fits into the folding wheel chair space in the back of the plane. I've found that if you are nice and smile, the flight attendants are more that willing to help you.

Marconi Zadok Lordelo Neves: Very good explanation. Shalom Aleichem 🔯🙏‼️

Rayvolt B: sublime scenatio de Zhang Ting l'un des meilleurs scenaristes chinois. J'ai vu le tout récent Monl Comes Down The Mountain dont le scenatio a été signé par Zhang Ting j'adore ce qu'il fait je suis de tres près sa carrière
Tim Wong: I tried this VPN and it worked fine at the beginning but then after 1-2 weeks I started having problems and contacted their customer service and when things got tough then shut me down and refunded me immediately no explanation given. Up to now, I am not sure what happen. I was in contact with Jennie and then all of a sudden Neil Smith, took over the ticket/conversation and BANG!! shut down. I would not recommend using 12VPN!!!
Black Feniks: Dope!
MxAndy: Hey i can't figure out y the brace for the trans fluid will not line up to any bolts i could find. Any help would be great.
