Jeff, I recently(jan. 2009) sent an on-topic frameset to Australia US priority airmail for around $80, i think. it may have been less, but I know it was not more than $80. It was just a frame and fork(58cm), so the box was able to be smaller as the fork was not installed. I had no size restrictions problem. Just look on the USPS website, I think the max girth is 108" and that is easy to do a frameset under that. A lot harder to do a complete bike with wheels, but is possible. joel ralph flood philadelphia, PA
