General Discussion / Getting a Bike to where you are going

Interested in seeing how others get their bike to a destination. Also if one was going to get a new bike is it really worth considering a bike that breaks down and can be checked on an airplane or purchase of a good shipping container and having the bike shipped to a destination.

Thanks pblamb
I'm looking for a bike that will carry a full load front and rear as I will be packing camping gear. I would like the tires to be wide/soft enough to ride on unpaved roads found in many national parks and forests. My current bike has very out dated suntour components with shifting levers on the frame. I have been told by a couple of bike shops to upgrade would require bending/cutting of the frame which I am not willing to do. What I like most about my bike is I am used to it. It has 27x1.25 tires which is max for the bike. I would like wider tires. Hope this is more inline as to what you suggest. Thanks

I have begun my search for a new bike. I am replacing my 20 year old Cannondale ST400. I am asking for any advice or help on selecting a new ride. I am currently limited to 3-4 day camping trips but will be retiring soon and plan to extend my travels to 2-3 weeks at a time. I will be riding paved as well as unpaved roads. So far the Rivendell Atlantis and Co-Motion Pangea have caught my eye. Any feedback will be helpful and appreciated. Thanks
