    Getting my bike from Sydney to London

    hey all,
    wondering if anyone knows the cheapest way to get my trek 6700 from Sydney to London.
    I have left Sydney already and was planning to sell my bike and buy a new one in London but having seen the prices here I just want to bring my old one over.

    Anyone know the best way to do this and have any idea of rough costs??
    Thanks

    Ask these people for a quote, http://www.packsend.com.au/

    I think the cost will be prohibitive but you can always ask.

    wouldn't the wooden crate add a lot to the weight of shipping it?

    While not the quickest or least expensive...

    Seems to me it would be funnest to ride it most of the way

    More seriously, do you have any chances of going back to Sydney for a visit for other reasons? You might then take it with you on the return.
