Hi,
Any of you who have experience in shipping a frameset to Europe?
What is the cheapest, yet still reliable, non-boat method?

I need the frame from New York to Denmark.

I'd guess it's USPS. Use a box within their max dimensions. It's all on their site.

USPS is the cheapest.

Use "Priority Mail" service where available.
These are the general restrictions for Priority Mail -

USPS Guidelines for shipping to France. (66lbs limit for most levels of service)
USPS Guidelines for shipping to Denmark. (66lbs limit)

All Countries

66lbs <-> 29.9kg = at least 4 UCI limit complete bikes or 2 complete bikes with their equivalent weight in cardboard and packaging.
That's per shipment. You could also ship things separately without restriction as long as each package is less than the limit.

Size limit for the package is typically this:
Maximum length: 60 inches
Maximum length and girth combined: 108 inches

How to get those measurements?
