Bike-in-a-Bag

In this four-minute video, you can see how I put my bike in a bag for transit between Anchorage and Switzerland.  It took me 22 minutes to do the job, but I speeded up the video for you.  No fancy music, just funny squeaky sounds.  I flew with IcelandAir with this bike as checked luggage and two carry-on items.  I was not charged for the bike.  It was placed with the other oversize luggage and appears in Zürich on the conveyor belt for bulky items with no damage.  I took off the packaging and reassembled the pedals directly in the airport, and rode away.  Thanks go to my friend Mark for the research and the original idea, and to Wiggle for the bag.
