General Discussion / overseas travel

I will be retiring in a few years and I would like to do a large circle tour of the world to include, but not limited to, places like Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia, parts of Europe and then home. My question is what is the best way to ship your bike on a tour such as this?

Thanks in advance

General Discussion / air travel and bike touring

If I were to fly to Europe, Australia and New Zealand as an example, what would I do with the $400 dollar bicycle case that my bike would be packed in? Do airports have locker space for rent that would hold a bike case for an extended time? The reason is that I may be on a tour for several years traveling to these places and I would really like to ride my own bike.

Gear Talk / hub generators

I'm going to be building a bike soon and am wondering about hub generators. Is there a noticable drag with this type of hub? Are some better than others? Can a phone, camera or GPS be charged by these hubs or are they just for lights?
