I would recomend a torker ax for weight savings. To protect my ax for
shiping I use two thin disks of 1/4 inch under layment plywood on each
side of wheel. To make, cut disks slightly smaller than tire. Cut slots
approximatly 2" wide to center of disks so they will slide over axle.
Drill 5 or 6 holes around perimeter a little inboard of wheel and
secure with cord. I also remove pedals and seat and put in bag. The
floatation noodles with a hole in center used for swiming works well
for pading seat post, cranks etc. With uni so well protected I believe
you could use a soft bag which should be easy to find at camping,
surplus store.

This is just what I did a month ago for a flight on Southwest Airlines.
The wheelbox was great, except too small to fit my 29er without taking
the frame off the hub. With removing pedals as well it took about 10
minutes to take apart & same at the other end. _This_ airline charged
no extra fee for the box as my second piece of luggage, but they
required I sign a damage waiver as the box is more easily damaged or
ripped open. It came through fine though, and I've saved the box for
next time.
