What’s an XBike Shipper?
Go to our XBike Shipper assembly instructions page.
The XBike Shipper™ is the low-cost solution for shipping your bicycle.
The container is constructed of layered, high-quality double-wall corrugate and is designed to withstand the compression and impacts experienced during air and ground shipment. Critical areas of the shell will contain four layers of double-wall corrugate when fully packaged. Unlike hard cases, the XBike Shipper™ is recyclable, and its small size and dimensions will minimize the cost of shipment.
However, unlike our Aircaddy® bicycle container, the reduced size of the XBike Shipper™ requires a more complete disassembly of the bicycle. For this reason, the XBike Shipper™ may not be the solution for everyone. To pack the bicycle, the following components must be removed: Both wheels and quick release skewers, pedals, handlebars and/or stem, seatpost and saddle, fork (in some cases) and front brake (in some cases).
If you have mechanical experience, the procedure is very simple. If not, it is recommended that you purchase our larger Aircaddy® bicycle container, which only requires the removal of the front wheel and saddle/seatpost and rotation of the handlebars. Please note that Shipbikes.com cannot provide guidance in the disassembly and assembly of your bicycle.
Once purchased, the XBike Shipper™ should ship during the next business day. It should arrive within 2-5 business days. For details regarding specific transit times, please contact us at 877-323-4083.
The XBike Shipper™ is shipped collapsed, in a flat package. The dimensions of that package are 32 X 22 X 5 inches. (82 X 56 X 13 cm.) and the weight is 14 lbs. (6.4 kg.).
Once the carton has been fully assembled and packed, its dimensions are 43 X 11 X 32 in. (110 X 28 X 82 cm.). Because the combined length and girth of the package is 129 in.(330 cm.), no oversize fees will be charged and it will in stead be billed based on “dimensional weight”. The dimensional weight of the XBike Shipper™ is 92 lbs. In addition, the XBike Shipper™ meets all international air and ground shipping requirements for UPS, DHL, FedEx and all major international air carriers.
If you would prefer not to schedule a pickup, you may drop your bicycle off at most FedEx World Service Center® and FedEx Office Print and Ship Center® locations. Please call ahead to confirm that the center has space for your XBike Shipper™.
If you have any problems or questions regarding our service, please call us at 877-323-4083 or 708-383-5541.
