Overall, the process of putting this all together was quite smooth. Josh has done a very good job with his design. My reactions, after this first attempt at setting it up, were that I was happy with it. It appeared to be solid and is easy to maneuver. The test, of course, was how it would hold up to the actions of baggage handlers and over 20 hours in the air. Given my flight across Canada and having to transfer through US Customs in Vancouver (as the plane would re-fuel in Honolulu) on my way to Sydney, I had the opportunity to check.
I noted in Vancouver that one of the lugs on the CELLO top case had come loose. This was a result of my not securing one the tensioner cords tightly enough (not an issue with the design). Despite this, the case held together perfectly and I re-secured it. I am happy to sat that my bike arrived in Sydney without issue.
