On one of those annoying 'Popular across Facebook' posts that now seem to occupy most of my FB, there was an ad for this:

Don't know if anyone's tried these, but looks pretty cool.

The 'hotel room' scene is very resonant when I remember doing various overseas races and having to (rather embarrassingly) keep my bike in the room. This cover quite neatly gets round that.

Wonder how small it folds when not in use? Can't imagine it's very big...

Doesn't seem outrageously priced, either.

I must have been really luck but I've never had a single hotel that refused to allow me my bike in my room.

I actually have used one of these previously, when I was renting a room in someone elses house. It was really easy to use, covers everything that would get dirty (chain, derailleurs, wheels etc) and does fold up really small and light.

For what it is, it's quite expensive

Forget that!

I have two of these, which cost way less and have lasted 10 years so far - I bet the Velosock won't. https://www.roofbox.co.uk/scripts/rbvehsel4_tab.php/car-specific-accessories/b_w_international_bike_tub_black_no_bh96260_96260_/Qx%40w%2C6M42VAwp3%40Rb%7B~cC4ure%60Hvo%60
