John kindly sent us this image from his trip from the US to Germany and Austria – delayed by three years due to you-know-what.

Congratulations John for getting there eventually!

Dave’s Tourmalet “Erik”

Dave R named his Tourmalet after Erik Zabel’s green jersey (sadly it didn’t make Dave any faster).

After returning from his trip to Europe Dave said:

“I love natural metal and anodised finishes but on a whim opted for a Tourmalet in Buxumbox’s Enhanced Powder Coat finish. It looked stunning on arrival – but how long would that last? It turns out I needn’t have worried. After two flights and a 100 mile airport transfer lying on its side in a builder’s gritty van following a rental car debacle the finish unbelievably still looks brand new. Fantastic piece of kit!”

Dave’s Tourmalet is finished in RAL6018 Yellow Green

Steve G’s Ventoux Road box

Steve G’s Ventoux Road box

Customer Steve G has just returned from Greece and provided this review:

I wanted a super-sturdy bike box that doesn’t require removing road bike handlebars. The Ventoux checks off all of the boxes! My first trip with the box included flying transatlantic and a bit of Greek island hopping. One island involved walking from the ferry port to our villa (3.4km roundtrip) on sometimes rough tarmac. The wheels had zero issues rolling and no sign of wear! Every aspect of the Ventoux is very carefully thought out and am very impressed; you get what you pay for. Looking forward to lots more travels with the Buxumbox.

Thanks Steve!

Canadian customer Mike runs the YouTube channel Bikes by Mike

In his latest video, experienced traveller Mike talks about his priorities for selecting a bike box and gives an overview of the most popular products currently on the market – there’s also a handy timelapse of him packing his own Ventoux Road – 5 minutes 59 seconds  not bad at all for a first attempt. See the video here.

UK customer Jeff dropped us this line after his first trip with his new Ventoux Road.

“Just as the sign says – special equipment for sure. I had not anticipated a new phenomenon to appear on my new Buxumbox first outing to Mallorca – namely ‘Bikebox envy’. The attention and questions that i got re new box was amazing.”

Jeff’s box is finished in custom colour RAL3007 Black Red.
