Looking to rent a bike travel bag

I'm headed out to Colorado in September and would love to find a way to bring my bike. Does anyone have a bike bag they are willing to rent out that could fit and XL SC Hightower? I am more than willing to negotiate collateral and payment for renting the bag. 

(Yes I do know you can rent bikes but I'd really like to bring mine Grin)

You could rent from here:

Looks like you reserve dates, they ship you the bag, you use it, then ship it back when you're done.

I did look at that and I'm not keen on spending $200 for that. At that point I might as well just buy one.

(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) shows $15/day or $100/week, that's not too bad I don't think. I guess it depends on how long you're going to need it for?

I've got one that may work. It is a soft sided I picked up at the Recyclery. 

You can borrow it for however long you need it if it works.

Last time I went to utah I got a large bike box from a shop and brought it as a checked bag. If you fly delta (or I think american) and double check the dimensions it can count as a regular checked bag without extra fees. Bike box worked fine if you pack it well.

As this was discussed a few months ago. I was looking into the same about the same time.

With that  I purchased an EVOC XL bag... Traveled recently via Air
  Want to offer my bag ( plus i can get access to 2 more if needed) 

Would like 100$ per week (7 Days) + or - 10$ per additional or less days needed.

I would ask for a Digital security deposit , refunded upon return. ~300$

Would delver in the CLT area. help get it out there.

   I also have + will include a  GPS/WIFI Tracki you can use the app to see with relative accuracy location of the bag.


Can offer my advise that I experienced flying with Delta ( yes they allow bikes, but flying under the 50# weight limit is impossible . Had to pay oversize each way. )   Overall went very smooth
