The problem of packing up your bicycle and loading it onto an airplane isn't likely an issue many of us face regularly, if ever. But if you do—and you've got $1,400—the AeroTech Evolution looks like a killer way to safely ferry your ride.

The case, made out of hardened plastic, fits a disassembled bike, allowing you to check it as luggage rather than paying extra fees to have it specially shipped. Now, a few caveats—the case is designed to be as compact as possible (given its cargo), but might surpass the size limits of certain airlines. And at 50 lbs with a bike inside, it's not exactly a roller bag. But it's durable and rather sexy, and a clean way of transporting messy gear. [AeroTech Evolution via GearJunkie]
