Packing sequence for a 62cm road bike with ergo style shifters
This sequence illustrates how a large road bike equipped with ergo style shifters can be packed. The derailer cables were disconnected using Bruce Gordon cable splitters and the chainring (self extracting) and front brake caliper were removed to facilitate packing. 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 and compression members removed for easier identification of the frame pieces in this packing sequence. Be sure to adequately protect tubes and components when shipping a bicycle. The chainring was removed due to the large size of the frame. Most bikes do not require removal of the chainring although it can make packing much easier in some situations.

in this photo it looks like the lid wont close over the front wheel but it will. To close the lid it is necessary to deflate the tire and gently push it into the lid while the case is being closed.
