I've done this a couple of times. If you take it to the post office Parcelforce will charge you £50-60 I think, but this was posted in a cut down bike box so quite a big package. Might be less if you could make it a smaller package. However you can find places online like senditnow and parcelsplease that will be more like £15, but not all of them will send bike frames. I'd measure up the package and check prices online, it does vary on the volume and weight of the package.

It does differ quite widely... I've paid £50 for a full bike and the same for a frame, so you do have to shop around.
