Bicycles are high precision equipment and must be packaged as such. Shipping companies require bicycles to be packed in a hard travel case or a corrugated box. The bike must be professionally packaged before pickup in order for the bike to be eligible for our value protection program. If you are not experienced with bike dis-assembly and assembly then you may want to have a bike shop help you with packing.
Specifically, this means that each bike requires the following internal packaging:
Frame and Fork
Rear Derailleur and Hanger
Stems, Handlebars, Shift and Brake Levers
Insert spacers between frame and fork dropouts to protect ends from damaging the box and to prevent frame and fork damage. Spacers may include:
Seat and Seatpost
