The Armored Hen House is the latest and greatest release from Ruster Sports. This hybrid hard case features high density polyethylene sewn into the walls for added protection. The Armored Hen House makes traveling with your bike even easier with the use of luggage wheels and a pull handle for ease of transport. Best of all, your bike still flies as a standard checked bag!

  • 3 Plastic Inserts
  • 1 Wheel Bag Insert
  • 2 Pieces of Pipe Insulation
  • 1 Axle Skewer
  • 1 Derailleur Bag
  • 10 Velcro Straps


  • The Armored Hen House is compatible with triathlon, road, and mountain bikes.

    The Hen House is TJ Tollakson's personal invention to fly with his bicycle. As a professional triathlete, TJ travels with his bike anywhere from 10-16 times per year. He does the majority of his travel on United Airlines and if he were to travel with his bike in a traditional bike box ($175 each way), just 10 trips would total whopping $3500 in bike fees alone! In response to these costly charges TJ developed the Hen House to fit within the 62 linear inch requirement for standard luggage on all major airlines. The weight is minimal, the packing is snug and to this day we have not had a single report of damage to a bicycle while flying in the Hen House. Both the frame and wheel bag offer a significant amount of excess space to pack in gear, clothing and other travel needs. TJ often eliminates the use an extra piece of luggage and packs the majority of his travel needs in the Hen House!

    Both bags fit nicely on the conveyer belt and will come out with regular checked luggage upon arrival at your destination. Since additional handing is not required for the Hen House, we have yet to incur an excess luggage fee.

    The frame bag is roughly a parallelogram and is sized to be 30" on the ground, 24" high, and 8" thick, a total of 62 linear inches. The frame bag holds the complete bicycle frame, handlebars/aerobars, fork (removed from the head tube) and the crank. The interior pocket of the frame bag easily accommodates the pedals, seat post and saddle, and other small accessories. The Hen House will accommodate most bikes (XS-L), but will not fit many bikes with an integrated seat post. Excessively large frame sizes will typically fit in the Hen House with the removal of the crank.
