This review is from: Avenir Bike Bag (Sports)
I bought this with the intention of using it to store my bike indoors. I don't have access to the garden apart from through the house and figured it would be neater and much less muddy than just having the bike sat in the room. Also the bag is much cheaper than a shed which still doesn't help with the mud in the house problem.

The first trial has raised a few issues. The first one being that my Carrera Fury 20" mountain bike will not fit unless i take the handle bars off. One of the grips and gear selectors sticks out of the one end.

The second issue is that i find it quite fiddly to get the bike in as the zips do not open all the way to the bottom of the bag. I expected that you would be able to lie the bag on the floor, open it up and place the bike frame flat, then half zip up the sides to get the wheels in. It is ok but i so far haven't got the knack. More sliding in the frame which isn't ideal when it doesn't really fit.

Finally although i understood that both wheels would have to come off, i am not sure how long i will be bothered to take the back wheel on and off every time i want to use the bike or put it away.

Other than that the bag looks good quality and i can see as a flight bag or similar it is very good.

Verdict so far is that it will do for the time being but i will have to face the inevitable of buying a shed or bike store to keep the bike in as well as all the necessary security that goes with that. The bag may come in to get the bike from the front to the back of the house when it gets dirty.
