One of the most important questions that we’re asked is ‘will my bike fit in a bike box?’ The bikebox Online Velovault bike box has the largest internal space of any lightweight rigid box available so we’ve used it in this short video to demonstrate the crucial measurements to determine if your bike will fit into the box.
For those who don’t fancy watching Sam in action then these are the measurements to take:
- Bottom of the chainset to top of the saddle must be equal to or less then 90cm.
If your bike is larger then this then you’ll just need to remove the seatpost for most bikes or the saddle for ISP’s.
- Front fork to rear derailleur to be equal to or less then 118cm.
For bikes greater then this length then you can gain an additional 5cm by removing the derailleur or much more space by removing the front forks.
This helpful video shows how to remove and reinstate the front forks of a mountain/downhill bike- it’s really easy!
