What I do in these situations is write them and ask. Say, "I apologize for not being able to speak Swiss-German but I would like to know..."

The person is Swiss, from the German part, and probably below the age of 80. So the chance of them speaking English in some passable form is roughly 97.6%.

I asked... we'll see. Shipping will gouge me, so I may just have to sit tight and wait for one to come up here.

Naw dude, no way. If you cut the box down it shouldn't be more than $75. SLIM's FSR [frame only] was about $60, and I cut that sucker down good.

I got an email back from the seller... nice enough guy, willing to help if it doesn't sell locally.

it depends on the weight. if the size is small enough for the swiss post. usa is zone 3. so a whole bike could be more than $75.-!

If you're looking for a small Yo Eddy, isn't this an easier nab?
