Bike travel box

Hi all. Does anyone have a recommendation for rental/purchase of a bike box/case? Preferably northern beaches or not too distant, I need one for a four day trip. Sorry, I know this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything. Cheers

Is anyone on here using the Maxxis Minion SS and if so what are your thoughts?

Bike transport

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I'm looking at changing my car and one of the considerations is transporting the bike's.
I need to take 3 sometimes 4 bikes at times, but generally its only the one or 2.
I'm looking at maybe a twincab ute and getting a tailgate pad similar to https://www.mountainbikesdirect.com.au/dert-tail.... It looks simple to use, no need to disassemble bike, or wrangle with bike racks not designed for odd shaped MTB frames.
Has any one used these and would recommend for it or against it?

the curse of .. warning (major) rant follows!

press fit bottom brackets - aaaarrrgghhh!

I hate these changing standards, what was wrong with 26'ers anyway? My old one was light, ~10.5kg and very agile and the XTR bottom bracket in this bike was absolutely bullet proof, after almost three years of riding in frequently wet, muddy and shitty conditions it was immaculate, good as new, that was real engineering - simple, elegant & effective!
