i'm going to see a buddy in Scottsdale in a couple weeks. bike rentals are expensive and selection of xl bikes, limited. would love to have my own bike down there but flying with it, yikes, that's scary. almost as scary as being in AZ without a mtn bike. looks like i can rent a bike bag locally. any idea of the cost of walking up with a bike case for an international flight? is the risk of damage just too much?
I think you can travel with your bike as it will be much better in any ways. You can enjoy better with your own bike and it will not cost much as now, The price of shipping a bike varies depends on the level of service you seek, and the service and shipping providers you choose. Expect anywhere from about $50 (short distance, slower shipping, and do your own packing) to upwards of $250 (longer distance, faster shipping, professionally packed). So, You works might be done in cheaper pricing.
You guys can take a look to these 2 service:-
