Rated 1 out of 5 by Terribly difficult to hold and flimsy material I borrowed this bag which I put on the Eurostar. It was a complete NIGHTMARE. Positive points: + Spacious allowing easy packing + Semi-rigid offered good protection to bike Negative points: - It has no real handles and as a 5ft 5 woman this means that it is incredibly difficult to carry around - The wheels are only on one end of the bag which means you have to lift the other end up to your shoulders using a ridiculous indent of a handle to use the wheels - There are no shoulder straps - The wheel skewer protrudes on one side which will rip your legs to shreds as you walk along with the bag - Without proper holds a bike, rack, tools and helmet quickly becomes unbearably heavy - The bag is also completely unbalanced and will fall over on its side while attempting to wheel it along. It also will not stand on its own for very long which was very distressing when you leave it upright to do something and return with it on its side! The bike bag definitely helped to build character, gave us tons of laughs but only because the design was so ludicrous that one couldn’t help but laugh at the desperate situations we were left in. It was not good value for the money overall and I would most definitely NOT recommend it to anyone. Unless you are perhaps a 6ft 6 individual who is able to lift 40kg with your fingertips. 03 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Polaris bike pod endured 25 hours flight to Borneo!! I used this excellent product to transport my cannondale flash4 carbon to Borneo, travelling on Emirates airlines and Air- asia for 25 hours!! and back to Manchester. My bike was well protected, nothing damaged except the brake rotor was slightly bent, which was easily straightened by truing fork. Only fault was the flimsy metal ring/washer for the skewer hole, It had come loose on arrival and I had it replaced with a stronger/ thicker metal ring in a local bike shop for £6 I highly recommend this product. 06 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good I've borrowed a non-Polaris-branded one of these. I got my Flash 29er (size L) in it but needed to take the tyres off. A friend with a similar-sized 29er says he didn't need to take his tyres off. The one I used weighed more like 9kg, rather than 6.7kg. It looks almost identical to this one, though. It protected the bike well. 13 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Winner ! Highly recommended! After a couple of trips to South Africa, bike (and deep section carbon wheels) have come off unscathed. Not ultra rigid, but also not super heavy which helps when airlines are weighing everything these days (and charging accordingly) 1.Yes, the handles are just indents but its not a massive issue as I just use the strap opposite the wheels to pull the thing along which makes it very easy (even with another wheelie bag and hand luggage over my shoulder) 2.Yes, the little metal surrounds holding the wheel axles deform easily, but rectified easily with 4 large metal washers from any hardware shop. When the QR's are torqued down on these, nothing is moving! 3.Yes, the straps don't seems to tighten down crazy tight, but I think they just need bedded in after my first trip. Anyway, to save on security costs I just throw a dozen large zip ties into the bag. These keep the handles togther with enough disincentive to keep the sticky fingers at bay. 4.Yes, the stock QR don't seem too tough, but I just invested in a super cheap, bombproof steel set that luckily no-one seems to want in this age of titanium. A few very minor modifications as above and this thing is the business, but don't you do the same with your bike..? Why spend 3/4/5/6k on a bike and transport it in a cardboard box! 19 March 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but fragile I have recently purchased this box and used it for a trip abroad and the box was damaged at several places so I am a bit disappointed. Great looking box and good protection for you bike with space for the wheels but I find the box itself a bit fragile (one quick release to attach the wheel got broken, the plastic support at the bottom was damaged, the seem has came undone at one place, but the most negative comment I have is that there is no ''real'' handle to carry the box). My suggestion - don't pack it with too much weight when traveling by air for easier handling. 15 May 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by good bike case, could be great with small improvements shell, wheels concept all terrific and work well. Annoying that internal straps are cheap and don't work, wheel securing system could be a bit neater and NO HANDLE when using wheels or lifting, SHOULDER STRAP when it needs to be carried (not often thankfully) - I haven't seen anything on the market that I would prefer to use for my race bike, a 10/10 concept limited by some annoying details. 08 April 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight but reassuringly sturdy Have only taken (2 bikes) on 1 trip so far, but bikes and pods emerged in perfect condition. Bike is strapped/suspended in the middle the the pod, so if it is dropped onto its base, the chainring doesn't take the brunt. The pod is light enough that I could pack cycling clothes as well as the bike to add extra padding. 25 August 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy I have used this case to bring my timetrial bike to the continent and the USA for races. I am pleased with it. Things to note. It is quite light so should be easily under the 20ks baggage allowance on most flights. You can pull it aling using the front clasping strap if you loosen it a little You need to be careful when attaching the airline luggage label since the label could be lost if the clasp were to open. There is no obvious place to attach a label. Airline personnel noticed this and used double sided sticky tape to ensure the label attached back on itself using one of the clasps and hecnce cannot be lost. You can get alot of clothing and other items into the pod in addition to your bike. 25 April 2008

Answer: 
Unfortunately not; this bag was primarily designed for 26"/700c wheels so the recess for the wheels is not large enough to accept full 29er wheels with the tyres fitted.
