If you are traveling to New Orleans for the Ironman and need to ship your bike please follow these instructions;

  1. BulletWe strongly recommend taking your bike to your local bicycle shop and having it professionally packed. We have many horror stories about bikes packed at a shipping store. If it's done at a bicycle shop there will be much less risk of damage, and you can rest assured that you will not encounter additional assembly charges related to improper disassembly or packing.

  2. BulletBikes must be received by the specified time. When you make the reservation we will send you an e-mail telling you what date we'll need the bike here. The longer you wait, the earlier you'll need to ship. Please bear in mind that this is the date we'll need to receive the bike, not the date you need to ship. See the bottom of the page for the current receive date.

  3. BulletUnless your arrange for additional services you should expect to receive your bike from us in the same condition it was in before it was packed. If your chain was worn out before, it will still be worn out. If your rear brake was squealing, it's still gonna squeal! We will do some minor adjustments during re-assembly, but if it has any significant problems you should arrange ahead of time for a tune-up.

  4. BulletPlease complete the form as soon as possible to reserve a spot. There is a limit to how many we can build in such a short period of time.

  5. BulletTune-up service does not include parts. If you schedule a tune-up, and your bike needs $30.00 or less in parts, we will install them and charge you. If your bike needs more than $30.00 in parts we will attempt to contact you before continuing the work. If you will not be easily contacted during the week before the event we encourage you to set this limit higher. You may do this on the shipping request form. Click for more info on tune ups...
