I'll be anxious to see the condition the bike and crate arrive in, if this is all there is to it.
Um...this isn't exactly Dougs first rodeo. You can bet he knows how to crate a bike.

indeed...notice how he put the crate on the trailer before he put the bike in the crate...saved himself the hassle of trying to lift the crate onto the trailer.

Doug ain't nearly as dumb as he looks

Damn Doug, Dirtster boxed up already? Time flies! Looking forward to your ride report. I had to laugh when I saw the pic of your buddy's shop. Wonder if anybody has puked behind there lately.

This n00b has never crated a bike. But I have uncrated a few, and, ... I've put a few thousand of those metal studs in walls. Maybe there is more to it. (the crate) I hope so.

The heads of the screws used in the construction of the crate will hinder the tight fit of any sheet, boxing material that might be applied to the outside of the crate. My experience in construction would not let me build it this way because I would fear it would not be rigid enough to withstand handling.

I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

I don't think Doug needs my instructions. My intent was to issue a caution. He certainly should know by now if what he has done to complete the crate is sufficient for transport.

Metal stud contruction is an engineered system. There are three primary components. The stud, the track, and the screws. Track replaces top and bottom plates (when compared to wood construction), and is used extensively when building rectangular boxes such as soffits, or fake beams. These components, sized correctly (dimension and gauge), along with proper technique, joining methods, make very strong structures.

I think the crate needs chicken wire and some 5 v tin roofing.

A bit of binder twine and some duct tape oughta get that thing spiffed right up. Extra credit is awarded iff'n some of the crate ends up as part of the bike later.
