Flying with your bike to a triathlon, tour, or race can be challenging. Assembling the bike once you've landed is often worse. Thule takes the stress out with this hard case that's made from ABS – the stuff in bike and ski helmets, aluminum and nylon. Inside, your bike clamps to a carrier that looks like a car roof mount. Unpack, and that carrier coverts to a tripod bike stand that holds your ride steady while you piece it back together. Integrated wheels get you from carousel to car. [$600; thule.com]
