    I ship complete bikes through a shop here in Philly for $60 bucks - that includes them boxing it. Domestic though, not sure how much more it would be for international.

    Also - his bike will probably be stolen while here. Best to just get a local bike since it's so cheap here and his euro (1=1.35usd) will buy so much in USD :D

    Also -- I should be getting my new xtc in the next few weeks and you are welcome to borrow my SS 29er for some rides at that point!

    the shops I would recommend you talk to for a mountain bike are:

    Trophy Bikes (they carry some inexpensive brands)
    Bicycle Revolutions (great dudes at this shop)
    Wissahickon Cyclery (please note: team sponsor)
    Breakaway had some bikes on clearance when I was in last week but I know you stopped by there not too long ago.

    They might have some 2011-2012 models on clearance. I mean, an entry level 29er is only $700 new right?

    Thanks a lot for all the support and help you are giving me!! much appreciated!! you are great!
    I think that it's not worthwhile shopping my bike from Italy to Philly, now..it'd cost too much..the big problem is the insurance..
    Satan thanks you a lot!!If by that time I haven't solved the situation yet, I'm going to bother you about that.. :)
    I'm going to call these shops..and if I can I'm going there so I can see..gonna do that on Saturday..gonna walk through the city to see if I can get a bargain.. :)
    At Breakaway they had one but it was around 750$ if I am correct..so a little bit over my actual budget..
    THanks again guys!!
    gonna be posted!!

    make sure to haggle with them. don't accept the first price they offer. you are italian right? so this probably sounds like a no brainer to you... but just making sure.
