biknd

Having gone on several bike touring trips overseas, I’ve often wondered why bike transportation is so clunky. Apparently someone else has too, since the company Biknd has come out with a nice and light case called the Helium Case that inflates with a foot pump to keep your bike nice and secure. Apparently the case is only 9.5kg, which would have been nice on more than one bike trip that I can think of. It also collapses to a decent size so that when you get to your destination it won’t be as hard to stash it. Now if they would only lower that $600 barrier to entry, and if the airlines would only become reasonable with their oversized prices…
