    have you tried using MyHermes? check its within their restricted size and then it should be fairly cheap. Tried to post some bars and royal mail wanted £12… ridiculous!

    Yeah, posted a pair last month. They were not happy but accepted for £9 ish.

    Has anyone posted tyres since the recent restructuring of the postage system? If so, how much does it cost to post a non folding tyre?

    Have you send any tyres though?

    Otherwise go and post in the unicycle postage costs thread.

    Oh, and about £13 for two quite hefty folders.

    Not worth posting them anymore really, might as well just hoard them instead.

    Those posting non folding tyres…you do “wind them up” before packaging I assume…?
    Can fit in quite a small box if you do.

    We watched a chap at work open a box of cheap wire bead Gazalodi’s from Merlin once. Was like a jack in a box. They all flew out all over the place. The chaps at Merlin must have known what would happen. 🙂

    Just over £13 for two wire DH tires folded up inside a few large plastic bags. 😯

    What sort of bars? I recently posted a couple of riser bars, 2nd class with a signature required on delivery. Both times I was charged the rate for a small parcel – £3.70
