Looks like my carrera has been saved from breaking if I can find a cheap way to ship the whole bike to Norway. Anyone have any experience of shipping to abroad they can hekp me with?
The fellow is in no hurry for the bike so cheapest method preferred.

Thanks

Norway is not a member of the European Union. From The Netherlands to Norway I'm paying more for postage than to EU countries and I'm not able to post larger packages such as framesets or bikes. And I have to fill in a customs form.
I think you'll have the same issues sending a bike from the UK.

Have you tried Parcels to go they find best rates to send parcels, or Parcelhero. If you can make it fit into a box less than a meter long its normally cheaper.
