Welp. Time to pack the bike into its box and get ready for the trip to state college USA. There were some concerned looks from my wife about the fact its only a few days to go, and I always need to get something done at the last minute. I'm pretty fortunate in having a travel singlespeed bike. This is a steel frame which has s & s machine couplings in the top and down tube. This allows the frame to be split in two and the whole thing popped into a travel box. MUCH easier to portage and deal with in the airport, transfers and taxis.
