International bike transport
I'm in Melbourne, just about to move to London and wanting to take my bike. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to get the thing over there? Has anyone here had good/bad experiences moving bikes in a variety of ways?
My current options seem to be:
- take bike with me on the plane, pay extra baggage fees (my checked luggage will be close to the 20kg limit without the bike).
- ship bike by sea. slow. would prefer to have my bike with me when i arrive or soon after.
- ship bike by air freight. not sure how much this would cost or the best company to do it. would love suggestions.
The bike is a carbon fibre road bike, which I will probably pack in a dedicated bike transport bag.
