To make sure you manage this easily, we
have provided accurate information in this
manual on how to dismantle your bike and
store it in the case. Furthermore, we have also
compiled useful information on air travel and
provide you with tips on what you should
take along with your bike.
We recommend different versions of the bike
case depending on the bike type:
1. bike case for trekking bikes,
full-suspension mountain bikes and
Triathlon bikes and equipment.
2. bike box for racing bikes (up to frame
height 62 cm) or hard-tail mountain
bikes.
3. bike bag, the affordable and easy to store
alternative (however the plastic tray only
protects the lower parts of the bike
such as the chain and gears).
4. clapton box for folding bikes from
Brompton Bikes and the Frog model from
Riese und Müller.
Should you have any questions on this
manual or on our products, please contact
us at [email protected] or at +49(0)5451/8946-0.
Your B&W Team wishes you a good trip with
our bike cases and lots of fun cycling.

All cyclists know from their own experience: you ride your own bike much better and safer
because you know the sports equipment inside and out, the seat position is right and you are
thoroughly familiar with the brakes and the gears and know the condition they are in.
Available space in the case can be used to store your helmet, shoes, tools and bike rucksack etc.
Please note that the overall weight of the bike case should not exceed 30 kg.
Before travel
•

Find out before booking whether the airline carries sport luggage (bike in the case) and
how much the charges are.
Notify the travel agent directly when booking that you want to take your own bike. This
information will be passed on to the airline and you will receive separate notification.
There are costs associated with registering with the airline and we have listed them for you
(status as of December 2011). If you don’t receive any other notification, these costs are usually paid directly at the check-in desk.
Also think about transport from the airport to the hotel. For package travel deals: notify
the travel agent about bike transport from the airport to the booked hotel and back when
booking otherwise additional costs may apply.
Cycling event organisers: transport is frequently included in the travel cost. Inform yourself
in good time before departure.
Departure
•
•
•
You should generally plan more time to check-in when you travel with a bike.
For early morning departures, we recommend the check-in service the evening before to
save time on the day of departure.
Report to the check-in desk as usual. Once you have received your boarding card, you usually have to go to a separate desk for bulky luggage.
This table only serves the purpose of providing initial orientation. For the actual possibilities of use,
please compare the applicable inner dimensions with the dimensions of the dismantled wheel
from the front edge of the fork drop to the end of the rear derailleur and the height of the seat
post to the underside of the chain wheel.
At the destination airport
For the bike box, the rear derailleur must be dismantled on all bikes so you should therefore measure the front edge of the fork drop to the back edge of the frame drop.
The bike case usually arrives on a special conveyor belt or is handed to you through a door for
bulky luggage. It is rare for it to arrive on the normal suitcase conveyor belt.

Damages to the case

B&W
Please note that the bike bag only offers protection in the lower section in contrast to the
bike box and the bike case. The top section remains susceptible to pressure and impacts.
Report any damages to the case immediately to the airline. The “Lost & Found” desk usually helps
you at most airports.

Switch to the large chain wheel at the
front and the smallest pinion on the back.
This provides some protection against the
sharp edges of the chain wheel.
Keep a special pedal key or a long Allen
wrench ready and unscrew the pedals.
The right pedal has a typical right thread
and is released in an anticlockwise direction. Please note that the pedals release
with a jerk. Therefore use an angled
wrench and position the tool so that your
hands move away from the sharp teeth of
the chain wheel when you turn the right
pedal to release.
For pedals with an inner hexagon, insert
the tool from the inside of the crank into
the pedal axle. Make sure that the tool
is fully inserted. Apply the bike brakes
and step on the rear key until the pedal
releases.
In contrast, the left pedal has left thread
and is therefore opened in a clockwise
direction.

Open the release lever on the brakes
(Shimano, SRAM) on racing bikes or slide
the pin in the gear brake handle on the
handlebars (Campagnolo).
For mechanical calliper brakes (cantilever
and V-brakes); you must initially take out
the cable on the brake arm. Hold the calliper with one hand and press the brake
pad or brake arm together. In this position, the mostly barrel-shaped nipples of
the brake cross-tension or tension sleeve
(for V-brakes) can be easily taken out.
For hydraulic calliper brakes from the
company Magura, you open the quickrelease lever on one brake side and pull
the brake out of the holder.
For disc brakes (hydraulic or mechanical);
you should first of all look where the brake
pads or the points of wear (metal lug/pin)
are. You can use them later to establish
whether the pads are still in the right
position after dismantling. Please read the
instruction manual provided by the brake
manufacturer.

Open the quick-release or full-floating
axles on MTBs. If the front wheel can’t be
pulled out, it is due to the drop locks.
These are holding pins in the wheel
mount (drop end). You must open the tension nut on the quick-release slightly and
remove the wheel from the locks.
Remove the back wheel. To make removal
of the back wheel easier, pull the rear
derailleur slightly back with your hand. Lift

Turn the crank parallel to the chain bar
and fix the right pedal eye with a cable tie
to the chain bar.
Also fix the chain at the point where it
meets the chain wheel and where it leaves
it again. This means the chain cannot fall
and cause damage and the sharp edged
chain wheel is somewhat defused.
Switch to the lowest gear with the right
gear lever so that the rear derailleur is fully
on the inside.

Place the assembled bike in front of the
upright bike case and make sure that no
components protrude beyond the dimensions of the bike case. Optimise the alignment of the frame on the ASF if necessary
once you have loosened the screws of the
ASF. Tighten the screws again with 10-12
Nm. Should this still not be sufficient,
please dismantle the seat and seat post if
necessary, remove the rear derailleur and
turn the handlebars.
Removing the rear derailleur:
1.2
Turn the gears back slightly and continue
to hold them in place with one hand so
they do not fall uncontrolled due to the
spring tension when you release the
screws. Unscrew the connectors fully. Protect the chain bar either with air cushion
film or foam tubes e.g. hot water tubes.
Pack up the removed rear derailleur and
bind it to the middle of the protected bar
with copper wire.

Open the seat post clip on the clamp or
on the frame by one or two turns. Pull the
seat post out. This should be possible
without too much force and without
strongly turning it back and forth. Never
apply force. If necessary, read your general
instruction manual or ask your bike retailer.
Turn the seat post clip using little force on
the tool and only as far as required so that
it just securely holds the seat post.
Turning the screw connector on the seat
post clip too tightly can damage the
actual clip or the frame.
Protect the whole frame with insulation
tubes or with air cushion film
Release the front screws on the handlebar
stem by one or two turns and turn the
handlebars down until the smallest possible construction width is achieved. Only
turn the four screws with little force so
that the handlebars are only just held in
the stem.
Removing the seat and seat post:

Mark the insert depth of the seat post
with sticky tapes. Stick a second piece of
sticky tape to the same point on the frame
and draw a vertical line. This makes a big
difference when setting the seat height
and aligning the seat at the destination.
1.8
Place the bike and the ASF in the opened
bike case. Clean the seat post and protect
it with insulation tubing. Store the seat

so that they cannot cause any damage.

Place the wheel bags on the bike in the

should point inwards and the width
should be as small as possible.
Close the lid slowly and carefully. If the lid
on the bag cannot be closed easily, check
whether the wheel bags are not positioned well, whether the handlebars are
too wide or whether the seat is protruding
too high. Dismantle as described above if
necessary. Align the wheel bags better if
necessary.

Mark the insert depth of the seat post
with sticky tapes. Stick a second piece of
sticky tape to the same point on the frame
and draw a vertical line. This makes a big
difference when setting the seat height
and aligning the seat at the destination.
Open the seat post clip on the clamp or
on the frame by one or two turns. Pull the
seat post out. This should be possible
without too much force and without
strongly turning it back and forth. Never
apply force. If necessary, read your general
instruction manual or ask your bike retailer.
Turn the seat post clip using little force on
the tool and only as far as required so that
it just securely holds the seat post.

Keep a special pedal key or a long Allen
wrench ready and unscrew the pedals.
The right pedal has a typical right thread
and is released in an anticlockwise direction.
Please note that the pedals release with a
jerk. Therefore use an angled wrench and
position the tool so that your hands move
away from the sharp teeth of the chain
wheel when you turn the right pedal to
release.
For pedals with an inner hexagon insert
the tool from the inside of the crank into
the pedal axle. Make sure that the tool
is fully inserted. Apply the bike brakes
and step on the rear key until the pedal
releases.
In contrast, the left pedal has a left thread
and is therefore opened in a clockwise
direction.
Turning the screw connector on the seat
post clip too tightly can damage the
actual clip and the frame

Open the quick-release or axles on fullfloating axles on MTBs.
If the front wheel can’t be pulled out, it is

point where it meets the chain wheel and
where it leaves it again. This means the
chain cannot fall and cause damage and
the sharp edged chain wheel is somewhat defused. This means it cannot cause
scratches and the sharp edged chain
wheel is covered a little.

If your stem cannot be opened at the

should now be able to be moved and can
be taken from the shaft with the handlebars.
Slide on spacers in place of the stem,
which you secure with the cover and the
Aheadset® adjustment screw. The frame
and fork remain as one unit and you
thereby reduce the packing size.
Insert the bottles into the holder on the
frame so you do not forget them. Protect
the whole frame with insulation tubes
or with air cushion film. Lift the frame
up slightly and place it with the chain
wheel into the supplied foam support for
the bottom bracket. This is how you can
prevent the chain wheel and/or bike case
becoming damaged.
Place the prepared bike in the B&W bike

bags. Make sure that you do not lose the
two little springs per wheel. Also pack the
pedals in the wheel bag compartments
provided. Close them.
If necessary, push the plastic hub protectors (available from your bike retailer)
onto the axle ends. These are relatively
reliable in preventing the axles pushing
through the packaging or causing damages to the frame.
Place a cotton cloth over the sprocket and
slide the ends of the cloth towards the

packaging becoming dirty and the cloths
are useful for taking care of the bike later.
Pack the wheels in the wheel bags and
close the bags with the zips.
Please generally check before travelling
with your bike in the bike box whether
damage to the frame or other components
can occur due to vibrations or gravitational forces during transport. Therefore,
please do not place any loose objects
