Will Bike box fit in my car ?
Due to clever geometry the Bike box alan appears small, when compared to bike bags and rectangular bike boxes; Yet it can accommodate the biggest I S P ( Integrated seat post) Bikes.
As you will see from the photos transporting the bike box in your car should not present too many problems. We also have experience of putting 2 boxes, 2 cabin sized back packs, 2 average sized soft cases and 2 people in a Golf Polo (the second smallest VW)
Below is a 2010 BMW 3 Series with 3 doors. As you can see one box fits in comfortably with the rear seat folded.
Facts. what you need to know!
If your bike is damaged by the baggage handlers the maximum pay out for the total claim is £900.
Baggage manglers, constrained by time restraints, and a less than sympathetic appreciation of the value of your steed, receives the bikes at the top of the conveyor, he then literally 'skims' the bikes in there boxes and bags in what ever order they receive them, to his colleagues up or down the baggage hold, they are then stacked 5 to 6 high, there is no time or desire to put the stronger boxes to the bottom of the pile, so the bottom bag or box will have at least 70 to 80kg resting on it.
This is information obtained from a baggage handler and is not mere speculation. Bike box alan is the only lightweight box that does not compress even when stood on. Further more, it is the only box manufacturer that dare record on film the box loaded with a £3000 Colnago carbon bike that is thrown out of a speeding car, which resulted in no damage to the bike and only superficial scratches to the box. Bike box is designed and made in the UK by a life long traveling Ex International racing Cyclist with advanced engineering qualifications. Bike box, we believe, is the safest and most cost effective way of transporting your bike by air in style.
Custom Graphics - Branded Boxes (trade) - Can be supplied in shops livery (at extra cost). Straps are suitable for both mountain bikes and road bikes.
Specials. Supplied with your choice of graphic/s - Specialized, Pinarello, Giant, Trek whatever you require to match your current bike - at extra cost.

INSTRUCTIONS TO PACK BIKEBOX

Deflate wheels completely and fix into lid of Bikebox using wheel skewers.
Remove seat pillar and release shock pressure (where applicable).
Remove handlebar stem.
Secure frame into Bikebox (Chain set adjacent to hinge and chain set facing away from you).
Having the bike professionally secured within the box plays a significant role in keeping the bike and its components free from damage; our competitors generally ignore this fact relying on the rider to hopefully wrap and protect his bike themselves.
Experience and painstaking development at Bikebox has generated a means of transporting your bike that no other manufacturer can match.
For that very special reason we have a number of fitting options listed below.
A standard bike box in general is for a road bike rider with either a standard bike or integrated version as long as the are between 5ft (153 cm) to 6ft -1" (183 to 185cm) providing they have a frame with a 53 to 58 cm seat tube (excluding seat post) x 54 to 58cm top tube.
A taller rider at 6ft - 1 1/2(187cm)" to 6ft -3 with a standard geometry frame or sloping top tube needs a box made from our large frame template. The box is the same size but the bike is turned on a different angle within the standard box.
A rider at 6ft-1"(183cm) to 6ft-3" (191cm) with an integrated seat post frame will struggle to find a box to suit. Only our bike box offers a chance.
However the only way is for the rider to provide a simple paper template of the internal and external geometry/shape of the frame/forks and chain set and rear mech (gears). Wall paper joined with Sellotape™ is ideal.
With the customers paper template we can accurately customize the box to suit.
NOTE:That this Specialist service as a surcharge of £25. Please note in certain cases chain rings and rear me mech may have to removed if you have a very large integrated seat post frame. Do not hesitate to contact our technical department if you need help with the specification
Road Bikes – forks stay in place, Head tube Velcro straps are usually passed through frame and top of forks. Secure handlebars with small Velcro strap.
Mountain Bikes – sometimes forks have to be removed. Place forks and handlebars into available straps. Bars and forks can share the same Velcro strap. Larger forks may have to fit under the frame.
Secure seat pin/seat and crash hat into available Velcro straps.
Lay foam sheet over bike – check closure.
Install anti crush pole – spokes may need adjusting to allow alignment.

BIKEBOX IN DETAIL.
The bike box is manufactured in specialised robust plastic. A highly durable plastic that will not crack or splinter.
2. Toggle catches.
Rival manufacturers boxes and bags use a variety of fragile plastic toggle catches and zips / straps to hold the sides together. Bike box believe in longevity choosing robust serviceable steel catches.
The most vulnerable part of any style of case is usually the wheels. Bike box use robust twin bearing rubber bound wheels. Mounted on energy absorbing rubber pads to ensure silky smooth, quiet operation. .The bike box is designed for smooth surfaces and trouble free operation, with the added unique advantage that the wheels, unlike our rivals, have serviceable nuts and screws to facilitate removal in the event of damage.
4. Integrated Seat Posts.
Bikebox is one of the few manufacturers that can cater for the 6ft 2in rider with integrated seat post. Straps are provided to accommodate the bike. Usually by removing the seat top section of the slide over post. Taller riders may have to remove the chain set.
