Bike to Work Plan B

It may be obvious from the above photo, which makes the bike bag look like a Japanese designer skirt, that it really doesn't fit ViaRail's (or probably anyone else's right now) carry-on size limitations.  The bike only weighs 11.5 kg (25.4 lb), but it's still bulky, and ViaRail charges $20 EACH WAY to transport a bike (please tell me how "green" you are again). So plan B is to drive to work Wednesday, bringing the bike and leaving it there for the term.  I'm hoping it'll be a smooth ride from there on out.  When I have a bit more time, I'll work on tightening the bag's profile.

  1. Yes, with the side profile pic, it does look like a Japanese designer skirt (maybe a future sewing project?). Too bad that VIA is behind the times re: green. Nice looking bag! Maybe a lycra skin would work with a leather harness for the carrying part would reduce the profile?
