    Durango - shop to ship bike to

    Can anyone recommend a shop that I could ship my bike/case to? I have a trip for early Sept. set and just looking for a good reference from riders in the area.

    Thanks in advance,

    I'm doing the same thing, except I'm shipping it to Fedex, "hold at location" (in Albuquerque, not Durango). They'll hold it for 5 days. According to FEDEX it's on 115 Bodo Dr in Durango, but they close at 4:15 on weekdays and open at 9:30.

    BUT, I'm not a local so what these guys are recommending may be better. Just offering an alternative.

    I wouldnt chance that imo....plus If you ship it to a shop they can reassemble it and check for/fix any damage from shipping.And you can walk in the shop and p/u your ready to ride bike!

    +1 for helping out the local shops.


    -2 for me b/c I'm poor and will be assembling my bike myself.

    I used 2nd ave sports for 3 shipped bikes last year, but Cliff at PtP would be a sure thing also.

    I've gotten to hang out at the FedEx facility quite a bit the last couple days...

    They really don't close until about 5:30. The 4:15 time is the cutoff for counter service for outgoing packages.

    But yeah - learned that yesterday. They will hold your package (get your mind out of the gutter BGB) if you ship it to

    Your Name
    C/O FedEX
    115 Bodo
    Dgo, CO

    And have your phone number on the package so they can call you to let you know it's in.

    Thanks for all the advice - I'll give PTP a ring and get things in motion.
