So true, especially in my town.
There is a two piece case- one holds the frame and the other the wheels. It gets you under the oversized fee so you just pay the checked bag fee for each. I just saw a review for it in the last year but now I can't find it. Might be worth it if you intend to travel with your bike more often.
The other issue is how you get to your hotel, etc with your bike. Can you cram it into the cheap rental car or will you need to go up a size in cars now too. Everything starts to add up so is having your bike for comfort for a few days worth the extra fees all around?
For me, if it's not a race I just bring my measurements, pedals and Garmin watch.
