Yeah take the pedals,handlebars,and front wheel off and then you won't need that big of a box

ive had to ship bikes twice.
both times i just went to my lbs and asked them if i could have a box from a 20" bike. they gave me one and i disassembled the bike completly and wrapped each piece in bubble wrap then put it in the box, took it to fedex and sent it out.

1. go to a bike shop, get a bike box.
2. Take off pedals, front wheel, bars. Slam seat.
3. Wrap everything up really well. Bubble wrap, news paper ect.
4. No air in either wheel, but bike in box, slide your wheel onto your non-drive side crank arm.
5. Make sure nothing is going to move around, ect.
6. Tape close and make sure you get insurance on what ever your shipping. UPS USPS does not treat items well.
