Hey, I'm going to Chicago pretty soon and I can't bring a bike so I'm wondering if anyone can hook me up with a $100 25lb complete..
I'd also like a tour guide and all that other cool stuff, holler at me.

I'm not sure I'll be able to take the BMX from Chicago to NY so I may end up just dillydallying a couple days there, going to NY aaaand theeeen buying the bike. Idk idk

For $100 you'd be better off buying a bike bag such as the DK Golf or Odyssey Hawks Nest for a little bit more. Most transportation services should allow them. There is also extra room (in the DK at least, I haven't used an Odyssey one) for clothes and shit

This.

Or hit up craigslist for the area you will be in, and see what is there. Maybe you can get a solid deal, and then just UPS it back home before you leave.

A couple buddies of mine did that when they went out to PA a bunch of years ago. My buddy Josh (edited the ORCHID FOOTWEAR video) was living with Van Homan for a while while working for Little Devil, so Cole and Aaron went out and visted for a week. They UPS'd their bikes out, rode, and sent them back.

Honestly I would look at the costs. Shipping there and back will be like 120 bucks round trip, depending on weight/size etc. Hence the suggestion of the DK GOLF BAG that you could put your bike in and fly there.

Shipping will vary based on what you tell them the value of the bike inside is, they WILL ask for insurance. And if it is lost you are SOL and get the insurance amount you said it was worth. The higher amount you say will be a higher cost to ship. A buddy said his was 500, cost him around 50 to ship ONE WAY.

I would make sure to get tracking info.

So it will be $200 to get my bike here by the end of the week. I just bought a beater MTb for $50 and will try and cop a BMX off CL for under 100 asap, wish me luck.
drinking a beer at the bar next to the coop which should open in an hour, I hope they let me fix this bike there.
fuck I need a bmx
I don't know how long I can stay here for. Girl doesn't seem amped on me in her bed for a month straight
