Traveling with a bike can be a stressful experience, full of horror stories of broken frames and tense moments watching baggage handlers throw cargo onto conveyor belts and transfer carts. The Thule Round Trip Transition Bike Travel Case eases some of that stress by providing exceptional protection and security in a top-load format that eliminates the need for airport security to remove any padding layers to see what's inside. This travel case makes packing your bike easy with an integrated fork-mount stand that lets you break down, build up, and work on your bike with ease. For packing, the top rail of the stand clicks into place in the travel case to securely hold your bike in place. The wheels sit on either side of the frame, and the case topper latches firmly down with heavy-duty clamps to securely cocoon your bike inside. The Thule Round Trip Transition Bike Travel Case accommodates both road and mountain bikes and is easily transportable with an oversized handle and two roller wheels.

For bikes other than a triathlon bike, I'm not sure I'd go with this case. The reasons are the ones others have stated - its heavy and a bit bigger than other cases. This makes it a hassle sometimes when airlines can't figure out how to charge it, and it won't fit in a standard taxi (but, then again, neither will many other cases). But if you're a triathlete and you're traveling with your triathlon bike, this is hands down the best case. It will get your bike to your race safely and even help you to reassemble it. There's other small problems (e.g. the pull strap is a little too tight), but overall, this is the best case I've ever used and I can't recommend it enough.
Ok now the down side. The case is quit roomy even with your bike in it so you my be tempted to throw all your gear in with it. BE CAREFUL air lines have weight limits. I flew With the largest airline in Atlanta and there weight limit on bikes is 70lbs. I have a small frame full suspension mountain bike that weighs 29lbs. I had my helmet and tools in the case and it weighed in at the airport at 72lbs, They let it fly. So make sure you check with your airline coming and going as some smaller airlines may have different weights and limited room in the cargo space as we found out coming back that we should have reserved space on the small airline for our bike cases.

So damn heavy!!!!!
MOUNTAIN BIKE : You will almost for sure go over the weight limit for bike with most airlines. You will have to pay for over weight penalty. With my enduro double suspension carbon fiber mountain bike the price was around 500$ for a around-trip with Air France to South Africa. And almost as much with Air Canada. So I strongly suggest you calculate exactly the weight of the bike case PLUS your bike PLUS your gears PLUS the packing material. Yes it's Thule but it's always better to use foam pipe over your carbon frame.
ROAD BIKE : My carbon fiber road bike weights around 10 lbs less than my mountain bike. So the weight problem might not be for road bikes. But even with a road bike I don't think you'll be able to put a lot of your gears inside beside the bike and the wheels.
But it's the SAFEST, STRONGEST bike travel case on the market. PERIOD. So if don't mind paying the extra penalty for the ultimate protection of your 10K or 15K or even 20K bike, yes you should definitely get yourself that case. With this Thule Round Trip hard case you can leave your precious toy to the "good care" of the airports employees and take your flight with peace of mind.
N.B. People I know with inflatable bike travel case only had bad experience with these. The inflatable air bags don't survive the chaos of airports and air flights.
Downsides- it’s quite heavy...with a 30kg limit for airlines, I had to empty some cycling related items out of the case before Air Canada would take it.
It’s big. I had to get an Uber XL to the airport for $85 because it wouldn’t fit in any of my friends’ cars. I had the same problem at the other end, luckily I had a friend in the UK who came through for me.
Probably my fault for not checking first, but it won’t fit in my car, meaning whenever I look to use it I’m either renting or taxiing.
La valise est vraiment comme dans la vidéo de présentation. D'habitude, on voit un technicien qui a fait la manip 1000 fois faire la démo et quand c'est à nous de le faire, on n'y arrive pas (ex : les chaines sur la voiture). Là, c'est simple, précis rapide efficace.
J'aime particulièrement le fait que le cadre ne touche aucun des cotés, la valise peut se prendre de méchant coup dans le transport sans risque d'endommager le cadre.
Le trépied (inclus !!!) permet aussi de faire de la mécanique :)
Un micro point d'amélioration (sinon, on va croire que je bosse pour Thule ;) ) : j'aurais mi deux roulettes directionnelles à l'avant aussi, histoire de faciliter le transport quand on n'a pas de chariot par ce ça reste lourd (un vélo + une valise + tout ce qu'on bourre dedans parce qu'il y a la place). En effet la poignée basse à l'avant n'est pas du plus pratique.
Question solidité, une fois fermée, elle est vraiment rigide. Encore une fois aucune fois, pas d'inquiétudes à mettre un vélo de prix dans cette valise entre les mains de bagagistes à la délicatesse légendaire ;)
