About how much would it cost to Mail a 62cm Road bike from California to New York?

Asked by peoplefood (29points) September 11th, 2007

I am considering using USPS/UPS/FEDEX to have my bike mailed out to me, but I have no idea how much it might cost. Anyone have any idea?

Depends on 1) whether you can take it apart and box it yourself, and 2) is it just frame and fork, or the complete bike? A bike shop will generally charge about $25 to take it apart, and I’m guessing it costs around $50 to ship it. Check out ebay and see how much people are charging for shipping complete bikes.

Check this out if you need to disassemble your bike:

Yeah, I looked into this once and I think it was between $50 and $100 if your bike is small enough to fit in a special bike box (my huge recumbent wasn’t). You might also try DHL.
