Feedback from the past week…

Tom D, UK
Just wanted to say I went on my first trip with the box a few weeks ago. Absolutely great piece of kit. May seem like small details but the wheels roll so smoothly. Packing is super easy. Its clearly taken a few knocks in the hold so definitely doing its job.
Everything about it is extremely well made and it works beautifully.
A great product and delighted I have got one. And the big plus for the household is that by splitting it you can get it through the loft hatch.

The box has arrived and I must admit it has far exceeded all expectations even if it does look like a large oblong Royal Mail letter box!  It certainly won’t be hard to spot at the airport.I have tried it out and managed to get my bike in the box without even removing the seat so that’s a real result.  The perfect box for a woman, dare I say it.  I will photograph it and add it to my instagram account.  As far as I can see it has to be the best box on the market which accommodates integrated handlebars.

Box arrived a few days ago and it looks beautiful and unharmed! Thank you so much for all your efforts to get it to me in time for my trip. I recognize that it was probably a logistical challenge for you and your team, and I want you to know I appreciate your efforts.
I’m excited to use the box in my move and I am sure to recommend you guys based on your customer service!

Santiago’s Tourmalet box

Santiago is based in New York and travels with a S-Works Tarmac. This is what he had to say about his Tourmalet box:

“It arrived on Friday. Did a test packing, just to see. Wow! Super fast and what a well-designed product. After years with a Scicon Aerotech hard case I know the Tourmalet will be a breeze to travel with, likely fits into cars with more ease!”

Ian in UAE – feedback on his Ventoux Road

The box is just magnificent; a piece of art!!

The design appears to have considered every detail, manufacturing quality is excellent and finish is great.

Those points don’t come through completely on the website as the box is even better in real life.

Definitely worth the wait – now looking forward to get a chance to use it and show it off.

Ben is an airline pilot who takes his bike on long-haul trips from his Australian base. His beautiful new Caffin S&S bike needed the best protection, hence Ben opted for our Galibier model – the box that’s small enough to qualify as a suitcase and therefore avoid excess baggage fees.

 

And oh, check out his garage floor – clean enough to eat your dinner off!

 

 

Ethan’s Christmas Buxumbox review

Ethan’s Christmas Buxumbox review

“I made the decision to purchase a Ventoux MTB BuxomBox as I travel frequently & need a quality hard case not only for peace of mind but because my cycle insurance requires it. I contacted the company with a few questions before I put in my order. Correspondence was quick, extremely helpful & all queries were dealt with efficiently. I even had a few issues with the design of the box that they assisted with. I put my order in & was excited to see what it would look like.
Upon delivery the box was packaged safely. I was & am still, very pleased with the service & high quality of the product. The design turned out better in person than I imagined.
Pro tip: don’t be like me; read the instructions of how to pack the bike properly on the website. I was worried at one point that the bike didn’t fit but rest assured eventually after reading the instructions it fit like a dream.
Due to Covid I haven’t managed to travel with it yet however it is making a handy storage box for the bike to keep it out of the way when I don’t ride it for a few days. It is easy to manoeuvre the box due to the wheels, which are super smooth & the bike sits extremely securely so I am confident it will travel well. I highly recommend these boxes if you are looking for a safe secure bike travel box.”

Very tempting to make a box with graphics to match Chris’s bike…

This Yeti is sitting in a Ventoux MTB box.

Pritpal’s first reaction…

“This is a think of engineering beauty! I cannot thank you enough.”

 

On receipt of his stealth Ventoux for travels to Africa.

Dave’s his and hers Tourmalets

UK customer Dave designed his own decals for a pair of Tourmalets to great effect. He says “Very pleased with the service and quality,  massive step up from our last boxes much easier to pack. Thanks Buxumbox

Jamie’s Tourmalet

Jamie from Trinity Sports Management needed a box for his trip to Tour Down Under – here it is (in RAL1015 powder-coat finish).

 

As he said, the box was “Turning heads all over Aus.”

SpyVelo box

Thanks to James from SpyVelo for sending an image of their box – we supplied in matt black – they applied decals.

Ventoux MTB review by off.road.cc October 2018

As the only aluminium bike box on the market, the Buxumbox Ventoux MTB’s unique design means it affords great protection for ultimate peace of mind.

It’s quick and easy to pack and extraordinarily easy to wheel around. Yes, it’s a lot of money but it’s a high-quality piece of kit and should last a very long time

Road.cc July 2018 Tourmalet review

The Buxumbox Tourmalet is a strong aluminium bike case for carrying your bike safely when you fly, and it’s very easy to pack too. The price and possibly the weight are hurdles.

  • Pros: Strong, durable, easy to pack
  • Cons: A little heavier and pricier than most rivals

Several changes have been made since we first reviewed the Buxumbox Tourmalet three years ago, the most significant being that you can now get it with fixing points for bikes with thru-axles as well as open-ended dropouts and that assembly has now been moved to the UK – Okehampton in Devon, to be more precise. I’ll tell you about other changes later on.

I’ve used many other boxes but this surpasses them by far. They thought of everything and top of the list is style and function. You couldn’t want more. – Xterra World Champs Competitor
