Bicycles with rims lesser than 20 inches in diameters are only required to be appropriately packed.

Skis and snowboards
Both the skis with poles and snowboards would have to be transported as checked luggage in proper packaging. Glasses, gloves and boots could be transported in carry on or checked baggage.

Musical instruments
