Samsonite f’lite security upgrade for bike Friday bikes.



The Samsonite f’lite suitcase is the recommended case to carry Bike Friday folding bikes.  It’s a great deal for the price, it does a great job at protecting the contents and it can double as a travel trailer.  The latches are not the best, but can be replaced if they broke.  Since I travel a bit with the the tikit, I started using some medium weight cargo straps from the hardware store.   My center lock had already broke, so these have replaced it.   I like it a lot better now because of the extra security and also how it stands out at the airport luggage claim.
