Ethan’s Christmas Buxumbox review

Ethan’s Christmas Buxumbox review

“I made the decision to purchase a Ventoux MTB BuxomBox as I travel frequently & need a quality hard case not only for peace of mind but because my cycle insurance requires it. I contacted the company with a few questions before I put in my order. Correspondence was quick, extremely helpful & all queries were dealt with efficiently. I even had a few issues with the design of the box that they assisted with. I put my order in & was excited to see what it would look like.
Upon delivery the box was packaged safely. I was & am still, very pleased with the service & high quality of the product. The design turned out better in person than I imagined.
Pro tip: don’t be like me; read the instructions of how to pack the bike properly on the website. I was worried at one point that the bike didn’t fit but rest assured eventually after reading the instructions it fit like a dream.
Due to Covid I haven’t managed to travel with it yet however it is making a handy storage box for the bike to keep it out of the way when I don’t ride it for a few days. It is easy to manoeuvre the box due to the wheels, which are super smooth & the bike sits extremely securely so I am confident it will travel well. I highly recommend these boxes if you are looking for a safe secure bike travel box.”

Very tempting to make a box with graphics to match Chris’s bike…

This Yeti is sitting in a Ventoux MTB box.

Dave’s his and hers Tourmalets

UK customer Dave designed his own decals for a pair of Tourmalets to great effect. He says “Very pleased with the service and quality,  massive step up from our last boxes much easier to pack. Thanks Buxumbox

Jamie’s Tourmalet

Jamie from Trinity Sports Management needed a box for his trip to Tour Down Under – here it is (in RAL1015 powder-coat finish).

 

As he said, the box was “Turning heads all over Aus.”

This from Singapore customer James – his first generation Tourmalet box is still going strong…

“I had a weekend in Thailand. There’s a track around BKK airport. So I was riding within an hour of landing 👍🏼

 

Tourmalet Workstand feedback

This from Leslie White in the US…

“Tourmalet workstand arrived – definitely very cool. Elegant, well constructed, lightweight, easy to use. You ticked all the boxes. Congratulations!”

 

 

Michael’s Ventoux MTB

Feedback from Michael from Hong Kong…

At Queenstown airport last week, I rolled up to the oversized check-in counter with my imposing Ventoux MTB box. The woman asks me what’s in the box. “A bike”, I said loading the box onto the conveyor belt for scanning.
“Oh”, she said. “I wish everyone packed their bikes in a box like this”…!

SpyVelo box

Thanks to James from SpyVelo for sending an image of their box – we supplied in matt black – they applied decals.

Ventoux MTB review by off.road.cc October 2018

As the only aluminium bike box on the market, the Buxumbox Ventoux MTB’s unique design means it affords great protection for ultimate peace of mind.

It’s quick and easy to pack and extraordinarily easy to wheel around. Yes, it’s a lot of money but it’s a high-quality piece of kit and should last a very long time

Road.cc July 2018 Tourmalet review

The Buxumbox Tourmalet is a strong aluminium bike case for carrying your bike safely when you fly, and it’s very easy to pack too. The price and possibly the weight are hurdles.

  • Pros: Strong, durable, easy to pack
  • Cons: A little heavier and pricier than most rivals

Several changes have been made since we first reviewed the Buxumbox Tourmalet three years ago, the most significant being that you can now get it with fixing points for bikes with thru-axles as well as open-ended dropouts and that assembly has now been moved to the UK – Okehampton in Devon, to be more precise. I’ll tell you about other changes later on.

I’ve used many other boxes but this surpasses them by far. They thought of everything and top of the list is style and function. You couldn’t want more. – Xterra World Champs Competitor
