    S5 disc 2019 bike box

    Has anyone tried to get their 2019 S5 disc into a bike box yet? How much dismantling is needed?

    Re: S5 disc 2019 bike box

    I will travel with my S5 Disc in August and I have a Evoc Bike Travel Bag Pro which I've been using the last couple of years. The problem with most boxes is, that you'll have to remove the handlebar and (in case of the Evoc Bike Travel Bag) attach it to top tube and downtube on the non-drive side using the provided tube protector with velcro straps for the handlebar. Siince today's aero bikes have fully internal routed cables this might be quite a hassle. I got my S5 Disc two weeks agoand gave it some thought: Without having tested it yet, I'm pretty sure that unwrapping the handlebar tape on the drive side until the shift-/brake-lever should release just enough brake cable to place the handlebar aside of the bike and attach it to top tube and down tube. Any other ideas for travelling with the 2019 S5 Disc are more than welcome :-)

    I used this bag to go to Europe...https://us.sciconbags.com/aerocomfort-road-3-0-tsa-bike-travel-bag

    It worked great and you leave the bars alone.
