Anybody ever shipped a bike overseas? Any estimate on cost?

It really depends on where you are shipping to and what courier you are using.
France, and it's coming from there.
13104 is my zip and the weight is probably about 40 lbs...
If it's coming from france then I really don't have any idea. I've shipped a DH bike to Hong Kong before and it was between $150-$200 from what I recall, it was a few years ago, but I got a really good discount from my bike shop who happend to also be a fedex shipping agent.
You might check to see if fedex or ups has an international shipping calculator on their webpages.
I once had to ship a bike to Juneau, Alaska (which is like overseas, since you can't use ground) it was a full sussy, and to keep cost down we took apart the frame and made to smaller boxes as opposed to one big box, this saved about $80 in shipping back then....
I imagine the same thing would work now....or you could just suck up the $80 to have it thrown on the plane so you know where it is when you land....(most of the time....)
