Yesterday I drove around the city looking for cardboard at various furniture and appliance stores to build a disposable box to ship my bike. I went to four different stores with no luck and, on the way home, resigned to using my fancy bike suitcase (which I would then have to ship back), I thought - maybe the bike store (www.eriksbikeshop.com) has a box that would work - it was a "why didn't I think of that earlier" moment... I went in to the store and the manager Demian, who knows me by name now, said "oh yah! give me a minute" - he went to the back and came out with the perfect box. Then I went home and started packing - check out the pics of the disassembly and packing on my equipment page. 9 days and counting!
