    Do Cruiser bikes fit in standard bike box?

    I won a nice New Belgium Fat Tire Ale cruiser bike made by Felt and I may sell it (have alot of bikes).

    I have up until now only shipped road bikes, which are a snap to pack (remove pedals, front wheel, curl handlebars downward, remove seat and you done).

    The cruiser has a fairly long wheelbase, has full fenders, big wide handle bars with those molded grips on the end. It just seems like a ***** to disassemble.

    Any tips on to get this beast into standard bike box? How far would you disassemble it?

    Think about it this way, the bike was shipped in SOME kind of box. You just have to find that right kind of box. There are many sizes of bike boxes. I have found that Giant uses some pretty large ones.

    It would be nice just to be able to remove the wide cruiser handlebars, seat , and pedals..

    I recently got a Worksman bike in, and it comes with the front fork separate from the frame, so that may be a necessary step. Rear wheel, chain, sprocket, were assembled already. Rear fender was in place, front fender loose.

    How far do you have to tear down a crusier to pack it?
