A simple solution to the hassle of hauling your bike around. Just whip off your front wheel, remove the seat and pop your precious toy inside the Dogsbody. For big trips, line it with 'disposable' cardboard to provide additional impact protection. Folds into a compact 'A4' package when you get to your destination.

The only way my small enduro bike would fit was to remove the bars, snug them in alongside my forks, and put the bike in upside down. Perfect. My husband's large enduro bike fit like this too. Except now the carry handles on the 'wrong side' of the bag and it wouldn't be too cool to store the bike upside down on the plane. ANy way to tweak the design of this bag to have handles/straps that work no matter which way your bike was placed inside?
Got a new Dogsbody for a trip over Easter where we flew to Nelson. followed instructions and didn't have any problems fitting my large mountain-bike though it was a tightish fit. Found a couple of tears in the bag where the front forks sit upon arrival in Nelson and doubt it'll survive too many more trips.
My Giant E Mountain Bike with 27.5 wheels just fits and no more into my "dogsbody".

I recently went on a bikepacking trip in the far north of Japan and I used the Dogsbody bag to get my bike from Tokyo to Wakkanai (it’s the furthest north train stop in Japan) for my trip. It took two days of travel and five trains to get there, and the Dogsbody bag held up through all of it. I have a rack attached to the back of my bike and I could still zip it closed. It took some finagling but it happened. As a newbie to bike on train travel, I really appreciated the instructions written on the outside of the storage bag, The only thing I found was that I think my arms a little shorter than the typical user as I couldn’t use the shoulder strap and hold on to the side handle at the same time. I’d love for the shoulder strap to be adjustable to allow for shorter humans to use all the handles! Overall, I’m delighted. Thanks Ground Effect.
