Travelling Frame Protection

Travelling Frame Protection

Packing my bike up to head over to GCN Mallorca for my honeymoon, I became worried about my frame getting damaged during transport. Without the wheels in place, there’s not much preventing the fork or rear triangle from getting crushed together. I had some old copper pipe lying around and it turned out to be the exact proper diameter and thickness to make a little spacer for each axle, so I cut a couple lengths and inserted them into the frame and reinstalled the thru-axles. The frame is now protected against getting crushed from the sides, giving me piece-of-mind, and not a zip tie in sight!
