Packing sequence for a road bike with down tube style shifters
This sequence illustrates how a road bike equipped with down tube style shifters can be packed without disconnecting the cables. Each bike may pack differently and the method shown here may need to be modified for other bicycles. This bicycle is shown with protective tube covers removed for easier identification of the frame pieces in this packing sequence. Be sure to adequately protect tubes and components when shipping a bicycle.
In this photo it looks like the lid won't close over the front wheel but it will. To close the lid it is necessary to deflate the tire and gently push the tire into the lid while closing it.
