Re: Shipping bike from South Africa?

Have a look at this:
CyclingTips: Flying with your bike - tips from a baggage handler
Apparently a soft bag is the best option (which I now see all your linked items are). There also are tips on how to pack the bike - lots and lots of bubble wrap and stuff.

I'd go with the Tura bike bag - yes, it's more expensive than the others, but the other three offer virtually no protection against bad handling. It would be a shame to arrive home only to find out that the bike you went to such lengths to retrieve was destroyed. Consider the 1000 Rand part of the travel costs - or the cost of the bike.
