A friend of mine has offered to give me a lightly used bike free of charge. The only problem is that the bike would need to be shipped, and my friend has no way of disassembling or packaging the thing.
Does anyone have any suggestions concerning shipping a MTB cross country?
I was considering contacting their LBS and inquiring if they would disassemble, package, and ship the bike and how much such a service would cost. Then having the bike shipped to me or directly to my LBS for reassebmly. I just have no idea if LBS' are generally willing or able to do such things or if there are better / cheaper alternatives I'm overlooking.
Anyone have any experience or advice that might be of assistance?
