Pack Bike into Bike Guard

Whether you’re travelling or sending your bike in for a service, the Canyon Bike Guard is sturdy and can be used several times. It is of course necessary that you retain all the packaging material with the Bike Guard.
1. You will need this packaging material in order to pack your bike correctly. Picture 1

2. Unscrew the pedals and remove them.

3. Release the front quick release and remove the front wheel from the fork. Picture 2

4. Unscrew the quick release completely and pull out the quick release rod from the axle. Picture 3
Now press the plastic protective caps onto both sides of the axle as shown. Picture 4

5. Push the plastic pad spacer between the brake pads. Picture 5

6. Now remove the rear wheel. In order to do this you’ll need to slacken the quick release. Picture 6

TIP: Before removing the rear wheel, shift the chain onto the smallest chainring and the smallest sprocket on the cassette. Then the chain is under a minimum of tension allowing you to remove the wheel much more comfortably.

7. Now remove the quick release and push the plastic protective caps onto the axle. Picture 7 Picture 8

8. Push the plastic pad spacer between the brake pads on the rear wheel. Picture 9

9. Position the wooden plank between the drop outs and tighten it with the rear quick release. The wooden plank serves as a spacer and provides stability when the bike is inside the Bike Guard. Picture 10

10. Now wrap the protective foam around the chain stays and secure it with adhesive tape. Picture 11

WARNING: Do not wrap the chain with adhesive tape. The chain must remain slack.

11. Wrap the cassette in foam and secure it with adhesive tape. Picture 12

12. Slacken the quick release and remove the seat post together with the saddle. Picture 13

13. Now disassemble the handlebar. To do this, slacken the bolts of the stem face plate using the Canyon Torque Wrench. Picture 14

14. Retighten the stem front plate so it doesn’t fall off and get lost.

15. The handlebar should now be hanging down loosely by the shift cables and brake lines. Now wrap the handlebar in bubble wrap and secure it with adhesive tape. Picture 15

WARNING: Twist the handlebar as little as possible since this could damage the shift cables and brake lines.
16. Deflate the fork with the shock pump and compress the fork so that it will fit inside the Bike Guard in terms of height. Picture 16

17. Deflate the shock with the shock pump (if your bike is fitted with one) and compress it.

18. The bike is now ready to be packed into the Bike Guard. In order to do this you’ll need to prepare the box. Place the two cardboard inner supports into the Bike Guard.

19. Now place the bike in the Bike Guard as shown in the pictures.

20. First pack the rear wheel, then the front wheel as shown in the picture. The cassette, which is packed in protective foam, is positioned between the seat and chain stays of the rear triangle. Picture 17

21. Now place the accessories box in the Bike Guard and fold the flap with the recess for the seat post and the exterior flap of the Bike Guard inwards. Picture 18

22. Now push the seat post through the recess and wrap protective foam around the post. Now fold the seat post inwards. Picture 19 Picture 20

23. Now pad the top tube with protective foam rolls. Picture 21

24. Push the middle cardboard support down into the Bike Guard in such a way that the wheels sit exactly in the relevant recesses. Picture 22

25. Now fold the flap on the Bike Guard in such a way that the stem fits snugly into the recess. Picture 23

26. Now close the Bike Guard completely and push the flaps into their respective recesses and secure the top cover of the Bike Guard with strong adhesive tape. Picture 24

Always wear protective goggles and protective gloves.
