    Shipping?

    Jeremy, are you out there? Is it cheaper to ship those bikes on a boat rather than send them a few hours in the air? Wednesday is my purchase day. Thought it woukd be today but got way to busy. Anyhow its going to seem like an eternity until I get my box! Can you explain the shipping process from factory to wharehouse a bit? Thanks Man. Just killing time till my bike arrives!

    I'd imagine it's quite a bit cheaper to ship that many bikes in a container or two on a ship.

    Did you get the HG XO? Were they out of your size?

    Shipping bikes by container overseas is WAAAAAYYYYYYY cheaper than air.

    Shipping one bike overseas via air freight is $300-$500 more per bike versus shipping via container lot.

    I ship single samples here via air ocassionally for our internal use so that's why I know how expensive it can be to do that, but we would go out of business if we shipped customer bikes here in that manner.

    The bikes left the port last week and are on schedule to arrive here on time. We promise as soon as they arrive, clear customs, and hit the warehouse we will ship them out! We have a LOT of pre-ordered Goblins and Guardians so our shipping department will be busy that day (that's a good thing!).

    Thanks,

    Jeremy
