U.S. Postal Bike Shipping

I just bought a used kid's bike on ebay. The seller shipped it US Parcel Post via the US Post Office. Can i expect to get it before Christmas?

Seriously, has anyone ever received a bike US postal? I have never had anything shipped this large come from US post before. Thanks.

You dealt with an inexperienced seller. Yes, you will get your bike by Christmas. Oh, and get to know your mailman.....you're parcel may arrive soon at the post office but may just sit there for several weeks....

That doesn't sound good. The bike is for my son. His birthday is Sept. 20th. I'll cross my fingers.

So do i have to go to post office to pick it up? Or does the mailman actually bring it?

Oh, you will definitely have to go pick it up. USPS won't deliver that package.
