    Shipping a bike

    I have a Cannondale that I need to get home from college. I drove out but will be flying back so I was thinking of shipping it. Can anyone tell me what the best way to do this is and about how much it will cost?

    Thanks

    Boxing a bike for shipping is a common service that pretty much all bikeshops perform. They will partially disassemble it and put it in a bike box in such a way that it hopefully doesn't get damaged during shipping.

    You can save yourself ~$50 if you do it yourself. Check out Youtube. I'm sure somebody has an instructional video on how to do it.
    A shipping guesstimate would be $55-$90 depending on how far you have to ship it. I have found Fedex ground to be cheaper than UPS ground for bikes.
    Good Luck.
