General Discussion / Re: Cardboard Box for Bike as Checked Baggage

Just curious! How much did your bike and box weigh. My surly is pushing 50# and will be getting ready to head to San Diego to start Southern Tier in September. Looking for options to get it and my gear to there from Iowa.

Gear Talk / Re: Retiring, getting into self contained touring

I have a couple recumbent, bikes, as well as Carbon Fiber diamond frames. I will be doing the Southern Tier with Adventure Cycling self-contained later this year. I was worried about the climbs I'd encounter during the ride, plus the difficulty with shipping a 'bent, so decided not to use my recumbent and instead had a Surly Disc Trucker built. Yes, the recumbent is very comfortable. But I don't climb as well on the recumbent and also ride a couple MPH slower overall average speed. I realize speed doesn't matter much when fully loaded, but the climbing is an issue. Also, even though the Surly and my recumbent both weigh about the same, I find it is harder to push my recumbent uphill than it is my uprights. But that is just me, maybe someone else doesn't have the same issues on a recumbent.
