Right - now all we need is 20 Pirates who need bikes shipping...

Spoke with Ship My Tri Bike by Nirvana Europe today about IM Mallorca bike transport, and possible discount for Pirates.
This is their response:-

"I have some good news for you.  I have discussed your request with our bike delivery service department, and we can offer you a £22.50 discount, from the normal cost of £169 (per bike).
The only caveat, would be that the discount would only apply if 20 bikes were booked, confirmed and paid for.  If the number booked fell below this level, the full cost would need to be applied unfortunately."

So we need to get 20 bikes together to get the discount, but they can be booked from differing locations (which doesn't normally apply to their discount scheme).

Thanks FB.

I'll take a look at Bikebox Online.

Nirvana probably don't make enough profit from the bike transport, so they subbed it out.

I'll probably be using the new offering for IM Mallorca, as I like the idea of not having to rebuild my bike. So I might speak to them about a group discount and see what they offer?

Seems that "Ship My Tri Bike" have merged with "Nirvana Europe".

Cuts down on the choices available for getting your bike transported abroad, but maybe opens the door for getting a decent group discount for popular Pirate events?

What is a good 40k bike time for a first attempt?

Why was he trying to shoe you Raf? Can you use shoe as a verb? Were you in need of an extra shoe? Did any of this make your bike split faster? So many questions...
