I am starting to plan a trip and I want to utilize the military's Space A program.
They have very strict baggage restrictions, so I'm trying to figure out what the dimensions (hxwxl) are on a complete bike box (20" and 24" wheels).
I can always go to the LBS, but was hoping somebody would know from experience.
Worst case scenario I can break it down over two boxes as long as both come in under the linear inch/weight requirements.
I don't know how much help this is for you, but I was able to use a baseball bag to pack my son's 20", the inside length was a little over 36" so will accommodate most frames. I did have to remove the fork. I then put the wheels in a separate suitcase and kept both bags under the 62 linear inches limit for checked in bags and avoided bag fees.
