I need some info for an upcoming trip (April) to Moab:
When my wife and I went to Moab last November - We brought our bikes with on the plane. Even though Delta advertises that bikes fly free - their restrictions are nearly impossible to follow - unless you have a folding bike or Ritchey Break-away:
"Any bicycle in a box with overall dimensions not exceeding 62" or 157.5cm (length + height + width) and checked in lieu of one bag is accepted. Bicycles exceeding 62" are subject to standard oversize baggage charges."
Needless to say, my Iron Cases did not meet these requirements, and I was hit for $100 each way for the excess bagage charge, and $50 each way for the over 50lb limit -per bike. This ended up being $600 in charges to fly with 2 bikes (which was more than our round trip tickets!!!).
This year I am shipping our bikes - $60 each way.
Does anyone know of bike shops that let people ship their bikes to? All they would need to do was sign for the bike, and stash it for us to pick up... no assembly required.
