After last year’s incident with the baggage handlers, I decided to take some extra precautions when packing my bike this year. Firstly, I got some pipe lagging to protect the tubes of the frame – it’s available in a number of sizes and should fit most bikes – I got mine off eBay for about £12 for five 1m lengths of various sizes.
The second change to the packing was that I bought a set of Allen key wheel skewers, eliminating the chance of the lever end damaging the frame, should the baggage handlers again try their best to bust my bike.
Update: The bike arrived in Lanzarote without any damage.
