    This will get you started:

    BIKE AIR/SEAFREIGHT SERVICES
    You + your bike roundtrip on the same or separate planes, or by seafreight. Uncrated (bike tie-down secured to pallet) airfreight available on some airlines to some destinations. Bikes shipping ex-USA must usually be ridden or crate delivered to air/seaport minimum 3 days before departure for outbound US Customs clearance, http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/trade/bas...or_vehicle.xml.
