P-38 Voyager 

Now you can take it with you!

The outcome of some discussions between Tim and those who love to ride and race his bikes, but hate the hassles of travel, the P-38 Voyager makes flying to far away bicycling events and tours as easy as packing your suitcase! By adding the Voyager option to any new P-38 (we can also retrofit your P-38) the entire bike collapses into an airline-legal 26x26x12" hard-shell case (included). When you get to the airport, they take is as checked baggage without a question--no additional bicycle fees, no waiver of liability, no hassle!

The case fits in any car trunk or on the front seat of even the smallest compact rental car or taxi, so there's no hassle taking it to the airport. Assembling and disassembling takes as little as 30 minutes, when you get some practice at it, and you don't need to be a bike mechanic to do it--you don't even have to remove the cables!

Consider these advantages:

Here's what you get with the Voyager option:

Note on case size: Strictly speaking the airline size limit is 62" (length + width + height) but our Voyager field tester says they've never questioned the extra 2" of thickness in the case. As an option, you can put the rear wheel in another piece of luggage and then fit the rest of the bike in a 26x26x10" case. Your choice.

Note on frame size: XL frame or seat will not fit in the Voyager case, however you can achieve the same rider fit by using a Large frame and seat with a XXL bottom bracket extension.

Note on brakes: Disc brakes won't fit in the case.
