    Hi, My program this spring is to bike from Crescent City to SF. Foiur years ago I biked SF-Dana Point with a used bike which I sold on the street for a song. This time I am thinking of buying a new 21-gear bike with a package-holder and either ship it home to Finland from SF, or sell it in SF. My questions are, #1. If I ship it, would and could you make a package and transport it to the airport? #2. If I decide to sell it (i.e. a new bike used for a couple of weeks), could you think of giving me a decent prize for it? Best, Nalle

      Hi Nalle, Thanks for commenting! Sounds like an incredible trip. If you don’t hear back from Huckleberry Bicycles on here I might suggest reaching out to them via their website. They have two phone numbers depending on the location you want to contact. http://www.huckleberrybicycles.com/location
