You don't have to use a bike box. There are boxes just for wheels. You LBS should have some sitting around.Picshooter said:Thanks for the offer but I will source them here. I was looking for the "magical "solution of someone knowing some offbeat product unrelated to cycling that I could use. I'll get a bike box and cut it down.
If you are paying for shipping, get a real wheel box made for a single wheel. It will be somewhat diamond shaped looking at it from one direction. This will get you under the UPS, etc. size limit. It will ship for about $10 instead of $30 (Chicago to CA). - TFcmg said:go to someplace the sells automobile wheel rims. here the easiest place is the one that rents fancy rims. i ask for the boxes to either 20" rims or larger. another source go to the LBS dumpster and pull a bike box for butchering. never pay for them.
