1 Prepare bike: Engage top gear. Remove wheels and deflate tyres. Remove seat post.
2 Prepare box: Open box, remove Anti-Crush Bar and wheel bags. Slide Rear Axle Mount to forward-most point on carrier.
3 Place saddle/seat-post under webbing in base of box.
4 For thru-axle bikes, attach Dummy Hubs (castellated aluminium tubes) to front and rear dropouts of bike using the bike’s own thru-axle skewers – note that the chain runs over the top of the Dummy Hub to maintain tension in the chain (not applicable for bikes with QR hubs).
5 Load frame to box. Cranks horizontal, right-hand crank forward.
6a For bikes with thru-axle hubs: Drop front Dummy Hub in to the cradle on Front Axle Mount – secure by inserting Thru-axle Retaining Pin through hole in Front axle mount. Then slide Rear Axle Mount backwards until rear Dummy Hub can be dropped in to Rear Axle Mount – secure with two Thru-axle Retaining Pins. Note: there will be some movement in the Front-Axle Mount – this is accommodate a range of head-tube angles and fork rakes.
6b For bikes with QR hubs: Insert front dropouts in Front Axle Mount and tighten quick release as you would on the bike (as with a bike, quick release may need adjustment to accommodate lawyer tabs). Manoeuvre rear end of bike such chain is over Rear Axle Mount. Slide Rear Axle Mount backwards to engage with rear dropouts. Tighten quick release as you would on the bike. Note: there will be some movement in the Front-Axle Mount – this is accommodate a range of head-tube angles and fork rakes.
7 Place wheels in wheel bags. Load wheelbags to box, one each side on frame – on right side (looking from rear of box) located forward and on left side located rearward. The slots in the wheelbags should be oriented horizontally and adjacent as shown in photo.
8 Insert Anti-Crush Bar through slots in wheel bag and locate ends in one of three locations in Anti-Crush Retainer (note that you should use same location point on left and right side).
9 Load any other items (e.g. helmet, shoes, track pump) to spare space in box (these should be housed in suitably protective bags to prevent damage during transit).
10 Manoeuvre box lid over box base, taking care to ensure lid is correctly oriented by aligning two green extrusions on front edges. Check that upper and lower edges are positively engaged on all four sides of box.
11 Engage and tighten four latches by turning handle through 90 degrees.
12 If required, secure case by locking the two TSA-approved lock fittings (one on each side of box).
13 You’re all done – safe travels!
