Are you looking for a hard bike case or a car rooftop box?
If it's a rooftop cargo box you need I may have one.

I have one of these that I'd like to sell to clear out my bike closet. Only used once, protects the bike very well even if it's not the hard style you mentioned in your original post. I still have tons of cardboard reinforcement material to us with the bag if you're interested.

Thanks Skunky, i have one a very similar to that one, but last year my bike got damage really bad, that's why i'm looking for a hard shell, i rather pay to rent one than buy another chain ring

I dont have a case to offer, but just wanted to share a travel idea that someone else I know has tried and used successfully;
He has found a way to get his (size Xlarge specialized epic) full suspension mtb to fit into a hard suitcase (no oversize or "bike" charges at all) obviously, it requires a full suspension bike, and a bunch of tools and your time at either end of your trip...for him, it saved a lot of money, since he was traveling with his bike a lot.
Here's what he does. Takes the seatpost, fork/bar/stem, the whole rear swingarm assembly & the shock off of the frame. Takes the skewers out of the wheels.
Everything gets wrapped and carefully packed into the case. Smaller bits go into separate bag. It goes right through as regular baggage.
Of course, with the recent airline fees going sky high for regular checked baggage, I dont know if this still saves money...
