    Shipping help

    I have recently sold my medium frame camber and I need to pack it up and ship it UPS. I know my LBS can pack up bikes but I'm not paying an extra $75 for someone to do what I can do myself. My question is what size box do I need? Thanks for the help.

    The size you need partially depends on whether its a 26er or 29er. Specialized uses different size boxes to ship new bikes to the dealers.
    I would go to the LBS and ask them for a box close to the size the bike was shipped to them in. Usually they just recycle the boxes anyway - they would probably just give a box to you that is an adequate size.

    Yah... most local shops are happy to give boxes away if you ask (and I typically pick up some chain lube or something while I'm there... two birds one stone kinda deal)

    If its only a frame, you should be able to get away with a much smaller bike box as well, which might lead to cheap shipping costs.
