The best advice for shipping complete bikes is use a Cannondale box. They are larger and use heavier cardboard but most important have an internal pallet that the bike is strapped to. This keeps the bike away from the sides of the box, suspended in the middle. For frames I use regular bike boxes but make a pallet from a second box, strap the frame to it and use the reat of the second box as padding. I've shipped many bikes and frames this way, some to members of the list, with no damage. Phil Brown
