    I want to buy a hard bike box, for travelling to European races this year (I'm based in the UK). I
    didn't particularly want to spend over £200 ($380) so I seem to have narrowed my choice down to 2.

    BWH touring box at approx £175 (£330) http://www.roofbox.co.uk/Hirenew.html

    or the VK at approx £189 ($356) http://makeashorterlink.com/?A26316667

    There is also the TC1, but that's a bit more at £224 ($422) http://www.wiggle.co.uk/?Manu=TC1

    I don't mind paying the extra though if it's worth it.

    Has anyone got one of these, or heard about how they perform?

    Other groups I've posted on don't quite understand, and say I'm better off getting a cardboard box
    or wrapping my bike in bubble wrap and sticking it on the plane as it is. That is just not an
    option, I wasn't my Ti bike and equipment to have a little more protection.

    Thanks in advance.
