    LBS in Manchester/Boston

    I recently purchased an older Koga Miyata Randonneur from a seller near Manchester, NH. The problem is 1) He doesn't have the experience to disassemble the bike and pack it for shipping, and 2) He's having a hard time finding an LBS in his area that has the box (or the ability) to pack a large frame (63cm).

    Does anyone in the Manchester, NH / Boston, MA area have LBS recommendations, someone who you know would do a quality packing job?

    The seller has said that anyone in and around Manchester or Boston, or along the I-93 or Rt 3 corridor, would work (his commute).

    Thanks for the help!

    Tell him to try Belmont Wheelworks in Belmont, MA or Harris Cyclery in Newton, MA.

    Harris would be my first choice, and they're just off the 'pike.

    Naults is in Manchester

    http://www.naultsbikeshop.com/

    Says here they do boxing:

    A wrench from there wrote the bike repair book for Bicycling Magazine.

    There is Goodale's in Nashua and Hooksett.

    Don't know how much shipping either does, but there are both full blown
    bike shops. Goodale's does pretty big volume.
