I will be travelling with my bike by plane.
I have a hard plastic bike box, but have gotten different advise on these 2 points:
1. Should I remove the rear derailer, or just wrap it in bubble wrap?
2. Should I remove the handle bars with the stem from the headset by loosening the screw at the top of the stem, or leave the stem in place and instead remove the handle bars by opening the face plate (2 screws at the front), take out the handlebars, and then screwing the face plate back on?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
