Bicycle shipment saga – Chapter Two


We’ve successfully packed our bikes into two of the three boxes we bought the other day. Although they were labelled 26″ our 700C bikes fitted OK. We now have a spare cardboard bicycle box suitable for a touring bike.

Packing the bikes

Just in case there’s anybody out there looking for a bike box, we’re in Sultanahmet and leaving Istanbul on Monday (20 September 2010) morning. If you need a box this weekend leave a message and we can arrange a handover.

For the record there are a few bikes shops near the Istanbul Railway Station (behind McDonalds) where you should be able to buy a box. The going rate seems to be TL10-20 each.
