...but yes, I violently agree.
Agreed although his post may carry a little more weight as he claims to be a pilot and sees it all first hand.
A cycling buddy tells the story of his marmotte trip. At Geneva his flight arrived at the same time as a flight from the middle east. He collected his bike from the outsize luggage place at the same time as a guy (from the ME) who had his P&J in a decent brand hard case. He opened the case to find his Cervelo with a snapped chainstay.
I am not sure how it could have happened. Maybe it was a scam to make an insurance claim but the frame was broken.
I just watched this authoritative video:
Being serious, it's just so obvious - a bike's a vulnerable thing. One may be insured, may be able to get it replaced, but if you're relying on it to do the thing that you went on the trip to do, then not sensible to, effectively, leave it to chance. Similarly, my being able to fish means I need fishing gear - intact, so I take ownership of that!
