I took this mountain bike to France, rode it across the Pyrenees into Spain, and across Spain to the west coast. 500 miles and lots of mountains. I had had it cut in half and had couplings installed by a professional welder. This allowed me to decouple the bike and fold it into a 61 linear inch piece of luggage. The cost of transporting a bicycle to France would have been $450. The return cost would also have been $450. But the cost of the coupling was a one time cost of about the same, $450. The bike is a Mongoose cromolly mountain bike. It comes with the frame, frame coupling wrench, wheels, tires, and cable couplings. It's great to travel with your own bike especially long treks where you know the condition of your bike.
