    I need to get a bike, recumbent, from Indiana to anchorage sometime. Its a family heirloom and still functional, rode it tons as a kid, been away 19 years and grandpa can't ride no more. Shipping is ridiculous for it and no family member seems to want to break it down and build a crate. Frame i think is 5' long.

    How about having someone drop it off at a bicycle shop and have them deal with the breaking down and shipping it properly. Just a thought...

    A couple years ago, our oldest Son was home for a day or two and spotted his old Schwin 10 speed hanging on the wall of my garage and wanted it. We turned it over to the Bicycle shop in Wasilla and they boxed it and shipped it to Dallas. I do not recall the exact amount we paid but at the time I thought it was a reasonable price (and I'm known for my "Thriftiness")...

    Cause its the length, frame is over 5' w wheels off, maybe more, and that is where it gets ridiculous on price, was quoted $700 to get it to anchorage, with them building a box or crate for it.

    Honestly I hardly find that price 'rediculous'. Think about it; you're having someone crate your bike from halfway across the lower 48 and deliver it to south central Alaska. I can't even get a small skiff or fourwheeler sent up on the barge from seattle to SE AK for that little. I guess it's time for you to decide how much this bike is really worth to you. Maybe you should drive down and pick it up yourself?

    Also- what does this have to do with 'Alaska Hunting'?

    akrstabout is really just looking for a comfier ride into his non-motorized hunting hotspot, but was embarrassed to say so. His recent aging is really giving him fits with his current ride
