Re: Bicycle on Sailboat

Storage space is at a premium on a "small" 28' sail boat. With survival suits and sails being a couple of the bulkiest. We decided to purposefully devote the quarter birth to storage. It allows a "disassembled" for transport full sized bike to easily fit along the hull. A bag contains it but I may buy a rigid commercial bicycle transport carrier sold for air travel. It would be nice to take my RB-1 or my XO-1 with me when I visit the kids, too. Riding something else is another compromise I don't need to make anymore. Ha!
