Normally found posting in the Road section but a friend from work had a bike question which might be best answered here.

My friend is moving to East Linton on the East Coast Main Line and will be commuting to Glasgow as part of a project. The East Coast Main Line train goes straight to Glasgow and they were wanting to ride to the intial station and at the other end possibly with the following bike. Does anyone know if the bike below would be classified as carry on for this purpose.

Thanks, ... t/boston_8

    I think it's 20 inch max wheels as carry on luggage. However I've always been able to get my full sized bike on ECML trains(admittedly offpeak).
    Commute: Langster -Singlecross - Brompton S2-LX

    Road: 95 Trek 5500 -Look 695 Aerolight eTap - Boardman TTe eTap

    Offroad: Pace RC200 - Dawes Kickback 2 tandem - Tricross - Boardman CXR9.8 - Ridley x-fire
  • Need to cycle to a station on the route and then either get the Glasgow Central (very limited service) or change at Edinburgh onto an E&G or A2B. That bike looks too large but I'd imagine folded and standing in vestibules you'll get away with it - especially on A2B.
