Question: Do the Amtrak-supplied bike boxes fit exceptionally large bikes?
Background: I'm a tall guy - 6'4" - and I have a tall bike. (I'm not sure of the size.) I bought it from Nashbar many years ago and, luckily, saved the box. In 2004 I took a bike tour down the Oregon Coast. I rode Amtrak to Portland. I thought I'd box my own bike to make sure it was done properly. I went to the local, high-volume bike shop and asked for the biggest box they had. I brought it home and, alas, my bike was too big. I had to haul the original box down from the rafters of my garage, and use it.
When I got to Portland I dragged the box out onto the sidewalk outside the train station and started assembling. When I finished I had no recourse but to put my old box into the nearest dumpster.
I would like to take another tour this summer, and may have to use Amtrak. Since the big box I had is gone, I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not their boxes will fit a big bike like mine.
Thanks in advance!
